A personal message from the Conference Chairs

It is an enormous honour for Universidade Europeia de Lisboa to host the 20th edition of ECKM. Since 1999 ECKM has established itself as a prominent Conference in Europe and in the world on Knowledge Management. In our minds ECKM is the event on KM that is not to be missed particularly because knowledge implies dialogue and ECKM provides a diverse forum to discuss knowledge and knowledge management. Lisbon has a rich history is sharing knowledge; it is the feats of the marine navigators for which the city is famous which shows the history of knowledge management. This difficult task was passed down generations and the nature of that knowledge can be seen in the city today. It seems quite fitting that ECKM would celebrate its 20th anniversary of its glorious history in Lisbon, capital of the Discoveries and at Universidade Europeia, the newest and more forthcoming university in town. Summing up, we invite all the persons interested in KM to come to Lisbon in September 2019 and to make ECKM 2019 a fabulous event. Come along, we are waiting for you!
