Call For Papers

1st Workshop on Knowledge Management with Web 3.0 (KM-WEB3 2009)
in conjunction with
12th International Conference on Business Information Systems (BIS 2009)

Poznan, Poland
April 27, 28 or 29, 2009


Deadline for submissions: February 1, 2009


Knowledge management has gained enough bad press over the years to no
longer be considered the silver bullet for solving problems in large
organizations. Should we blame the technologies applied to that domain
or was it simply a misunderstanding of the term? Recent years have
brought many interesting solutions where information is simply searched
for using simple keyword-based search; communities of users transform
information into knowledge by discovering, augmenting, sharing and
putting it into use. Semantic technologies that did not make it to be
called the Web 2.0 are now ready to unveil their full potential; more
and more information is produced in a machine understandable way and
more and more interesting services are empowered by this information.

Will Web 3.0 be another hype term or can new services like Twine or really show the full potential of the combined power of social
and semantic services? Can wide adoption of metadata standards like SIOC
(Semantically Interlinked Online Communities), SKOS (Simple Knowledge
Organization Systems) or FOAF (Friend of a Friend) help to deliver ample
of semantics originating from community services? What is more - can we
harness these technologies and build new, better solutions to knowledge

This workshop aims to bring together people who seek and research
solutions for knowledge management; especially those, who show how
semantic and social technologies can be used in this context. We would
like to invite researchers and practitioners from both industry and
academia to submit original results of their completed or ongoing
projects. We encourage broad understanding of possible approaches to
build knowledge management solutions; these could be, but are not
limited, to social and semantic technologies, mobile computing, research
on human-computer interaction and knowledge organization systems. We
would like to discuss how new technologies for knowledge management can
impact project management and business models.

The workshop will be concluded with 30 minutes "lightning talk" session
where bright ideas and harsh comments can be presented in short, 5
minute slots. Talks will be followed by the conclusions session (ca. 30
min) to discuss further development of knowledge management and Web 3.0.

position papers (10 min presentation followed by 5 min Q&A). We will
close the workshop with up to 6 talks (max 5 minutes each) followed by
30 min moderated discussion on the future of Web 3.0 technologies and
their impact on further development of knowledge management solutions.

All authors of accepted papers as well as other participants will be
asked to read accepted papers abstracts before the workshop (papers will
be available on-line in advance) to facilitate discussion. Workshop
participants will be also invited to take part in the BIS conference and
other BIS workshops.
