Knowledge Management as a discipline has rapidly grown over the years. There is an increasing realization on the part of corporate sector organizations to harness knowledge and intellectual capital as their most valuable resources. The focus of knowledge management has also enlarged from technological aspects to human and cultural aspects. The importance of transforming organizations into learning organizations has become increasingly evident to the business leaders. Promoting innovations through knowledge management and management of intellectual property rights related issues, both at national as well as corporate levels, have also taken centre-stage in today’s increasingly competitive economies. The applications of Knowledge Management have also substantially permeated into the development sector, thanks to the early initiatives taken by pioneers such as the World Bank. The emergence of concepts such as Knowledge Cities in the recent years reflects the trend towards blending the disciplines of Knowledge Management with other disciplines such as Urban Planning. At another level, the valuation of intellectual capital and its reporting have attracted considerable attention of the researchers, industry and even administrators in the governments in different parts of the world.
The proposed International Conference on Knowledge Management and Intellectual Capital will aim at providing an overview of the current trends in these fields through conference papers, research findings, case studies and innovative practices shared by academicians, industry professionals, knowledge management professionals in development agencies and research scholars. The Conference is being organized by the Institute of Management Technology (IMT), Ghaziabad, India in collaboration with The Centre for Knowledge Systems, Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico and the World Capital Institute, the leading international think tank in Knowledge Based Development. The conference venue will be IMT, Ghaziabad and the dates are February 26 & 27, 2009.
