In addition to the main conference, submissions are welcomed to 3 mini tracks: Methodologies for the implementation of KM processes chaired by Rivadávia Correa Drummond de Alvarenga Neto, Fundação Dom Cabral, Brazil and Knowledge transfer/sharing in international settings chaired by Dan Paulin, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden and Virtual Environments and Collaboration, chaired by Jean-Pierre Briffaut, Institut Telecom Télécom & Management SudParis, France
If you would be interested in preparing and chairing a mini track, please contact the Conference Director, Sue Nugus outlining your suggested topic.
Papers should address the conference topics listed above and can describe a wide range of research including empirical or theoretical studies. In addition, philosophical papers presenting an argument and papers presenting a process that has been developed and is now ready for wider use are welcome. In all cases concepts and underlying principles should be emphasised, with enough background information to orient any reader who is not a specialist in the particular subject area original. The work should not have been published elsewhere and should not be intended to be published elsewhere during the review period. See the submission details given below
Research in Progress
Researchers may submit current projects whilst they are still in progress. To be eligible, it is necessary for a paper to be produced to a publishable academic standard and papers will be subject to the same criteria and processes as research papers. However the final results of the research may not have been fully completed and interpreted.
Case Study Submissions
Case study submissions should be written to publishable standards. Case studies will be subject to the same criteria and the processes as research papers.
Posters provide an opportunity for researchers to present their work in an informal setting in which there is more time for discussion and questions than is sometimes available in a full paper session. This track is an ideal forum for the presentation of work in progress. Poster submissions are welcomed in any of the areas identified in the call for papers.
