Let me kindly inform you that the International Conference on Knowledge Management and Information Sharing (KMIS 2012 - http://www.kmis.ic3k.org/) steering committee cordially invites you to submit a paper to the KMIS 2012 Conference, to be held in Barcelona, Spain. The deadline for paper submission is scheduled for April 17, 2012.
Knowledge Management (KM) is a discipline concerned with the analysis and technical support of practices used in an organization to identify, create, represent, distribute and enable the adoption and leveraging of good practices embedded in collaborative settings and, in particular, in organizational processes. Effective knowledge management is an increasingly important source of competitive advantage, and a key to the success of contemporary organizations, bolstering the collective expertise of its employees and partners.
Information Sharing (IS) is a term used for a long time in the information technology (IT) lexicon, related to data exchange, communication protocols and technological infrastructures. Although standardization is indeed an essential element for sharing information, IS effectiveness requires going beyond the syntactic nature of IT and delve into the human functions involved in the semantic, pragmatic and social levels of organizational semiotics.
The two areas are intertwined as information sharing is the foundation for knowledge management.
KMIS is interested in promoting high quality research as it can be confirmed by last year acceptance rates, where from 134 submissions, 8% were accepted as full papers. Additionally, 21% were presented as short papers and 17% as posters.
The IC3K program features a number of Keynote Lectures to be delivered by distinguished world-class researchers, namely:
- Daniel O'Leary, University of Southern California, United States
(list not yet complete)
Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process. All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support. BIAB
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book.
The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and EI (Elsevier Index).
All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library (http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary/). SciTePress is member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/).
Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session. Please check the website for further information (http://www.kmis.ic3k.org/BestPaperAward.aspx).
Workshops, special sessions, tutorials as well as demonstrations dedicated to other technical/scientific topics are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat. Workshop Chairs and Special Session Chairs will benefit from logistics support and other types of support, including secretariat and financial support, to facilitate the development of a valid idea.
KMIS 2012 is co-located with two related conferences in a joint conference (IC3K - http://www.ic3k.org/) format, namely:
- Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval (http://www.kdir.ic3k.org/)
- Knowledge Engineering and Ontology Development (http://www.keod.ic3k.org/)
Registration to one conference allows free access to all conferences.
We hope to welcome you in Barcelona, Spain next October, 2012!
