A personal message from the Conference Chairs

We are delighted to welcome you to the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC) in Barcelona for the 18th European Conference on Knowledge Management.

UIC is located in Barcelona, a place that successfully blends the old and the new in a way that makes this city simply breathtakingly beautiful. There is nothing more enjoyable than strolling around the streets of Barcelona and taking in the atmosphere that radiates out from the architecture. Bold, brash, colourful, distinctive, harmonious, varied and unique are just a few adjectives that come to mind when describing the Barcelona architecture.

Traditional Catalan Gothic architecture such as the “Església del Pi” church is reserved and stoic in its design, but just a 5 minutes’ walk away we have the Barcelona Cathedral with is beautiful arches and facade. A short metro ride we have the famous “Sagrada familia” Basilica which towers into the sky and has different architectural styles on all four sides of the building.

Our city is also known as a City of Knowledge and therefore makes a great location for an interesting and productive conference in Knowledge Management, and we look forward to welcoming you!
