Fierce competition, globalization, and dynamic economy have forced organizations to search for new ways to improve competitive advantage. In pursuance of this, knowledge is seen as the core resource and learning is viewed as the important process. It is crucial for organizations to enhance the capabilities for effective learning and knowledge management (KM), especially via using information and communication technologies in the digital economy.

The creation, operation, and evolution of such research and practice raise concerns that range from high-level requirements and policy modeling through to the deployment of specific implementation technologies and paradigms, and involve a wide and ever-growing range of methods, tools, and technologies. They also cover a broad spectrum of vertical domains, industry segments, and even government sectors.

This event intentionally seeks educators, researchers, scientists, engineers, industry people, policy makers, decision makers, and others who have insight, vision, and understanding of the big challenges in Knowledge Management and E-Learning (KM&EL).

The best papers to be recommended for publication in a special issue of international journal:


The symposium papers will be published as a separated post-conference volume by LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science).

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the theoretical, technical, or empirical aspects of the following:

Principles, theories, models, challenges, legal, and social issues of KM&EL
Knowledge management and learning strategies
Knowledge management and action research
Knowledge construction in e-learning
