The conference is preceded by one day of free tutorials for participants who wish to learn state of the art of research relating to the topics of KMO and LTEC. The tutorials will be held on the 20 July 2020. The conference itself commences on the 21st July 2019.
Knowledge is behind the creation of benchmark products and service. It is power, and when properly harnessed, it has a competitive advantage. Technology has had a tremendous impact on knowledge management (KM), inspiring the development of robust software platforms to leverage KM strategies. Knowledge management continues to evolve in response to new demands and challenges.
Social media has revolutionized the way we use the Internet. Social element can be integrated with a variety of application types, including knowledge management. When social media elements are blended with knowledge management the work becomes easier. Knowledge based systems are becoming more collaborative as seen in social intranet, allowing individuals to work on documents and communicate with each other in real time.
Mobile technology has become a primary means of accessing the Web for both personal and professional reasons. Mobile devices save both money and time, and as a result, mobile technology and KM will soon be inseparable. Today KM software allows us to tag, share, and organize content as soon as we create it. This helps to cut down on confusion and makes knowledge management a more interactive process.
KM today is developing a more robust approach that includes vendors, clients and customers. Newer knowledge management options must allow for external integration so that internal and external parties can share information more easily. Blockchain and cryptographic technologies allow users in KM to own and control their data, and for data to be trusted by third parties they choose to interact with. There are potential benefits of automating routine knowledge tasks and using powerful algorithms to recommend relevant content and colleagues based on users’ personas and the context of their work.
Although technology plays crucial toles in the advance of KM, it is important to remember that KM will always fail if the end users and stakeholders are not in the centre of the strategy, design, implementation, and operations. KM should also be concerned with human-centered approaches, People, Process, Content, Culture and new design methodologies such as designfor users’ experiences. To effectively manage knowledge in organisations; it is necessary that we address many of the above issues.
KMO 2020 conference aims to bring together leading academic researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research from all aspects of Knowledge Management challenges. It also provides an interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss their most recent work, trends, innovation and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered, and solutions adopted in the fields of Knowledge Management in Organisations.
The conference welcomes contributions from researchers and scholars to contribute original and unpublished results of conceptual, constructive, empirical, experimental, or theoretical work in all areas of Knowledge Management in organisations at the conference. The conference solicits contributions of full papers that address themes and topics of the conference. We are also interested in case studies that demonstrate how KM research strategies have been applied and the lessons learned. Case studies and work-in- progress/posters are welcomed. PhD Research, proposals for roundtable discussions, non- academic contributions and product demonstrations based on the main themes are also invited.
