A personal message from the Conference Chairs

We are proud to welcome you to Belfast, the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland.

Historically, Belfast has been a centre for the Irish linen industry, tobacco production, rope-making and shipbuilding: the city's main shipbuilders, Harland and Wolff, built the famous RMS Titanic.

Belfast_City_Hall-175Today, Belfast remains a centre for industry, as well as the arts, higher education, business, and law, and is the economic engine of Northern Ireland. The city suffered greatly during a period of conflict referred to as ‘The Troubles’ but in more recent years has undergone a sustained period of calm, and substantial economic and commercial growth. Belfast City Centre has undergone considerable expansion and regeneration in recent years, and is now cited as the one of the ‘must see’ cities in the United Kingdom.

We hope that the past and the present of our city will make a great location for an interesting and productive conference in Knowledge Management, and we look forward to welcoming you!
