7th German Workshop on Experience Management (GWEM2017)
At the 7th Professional Knowledge Management
Workshop Website: http://research.idi.ntnu.no/cbr/gwem2017/
Paper submission deadline: January 12, 2016
CALL FOR PAPERS
German Workshop on Experience Management 5.-7. April 2017 as a part
of the 7th Conference "Professional Knowledge Management" held from 5.-7. April 2017
in Karlsruhe (http://wm2017.aifb.kit.edu/).
Efficient utilization of experience is gaining in importance since
expertise, "know how", applied knowledge can be assessed as one of
the most important resources and the key issue for successfully
competing organizations in almost every sector of economy. In the
context of this workshop as well as the workshops previously held
in this series, 'experience' is mainly considered as a form of
knowledge obtained during the solution of problems. Therefore,
similar but not identical issues from approaches developed in Knowledge
Management, all aspects of the whole lifecycle of 'experience' are
in the focus of this workshop: Analyzing, modeling, storing,
retrieving, developing, and reusing experience are major challenges
to Experience Management (EM) and hence can be in the center of
contributions to this workshop.
Hence, besides the traditionally strong focus of this workshop series
on the design, development and integration of intelligent systems and
methods for managing experience, subjects relevant in Experience
Management may be contributed by different communities from computer
science (e.g. aspects of big data in the
discovery/use/distribution of experiences), mathematics (e.g. analysis
and design of algorithms from machine learning, CBR, network analysis),
social science (e.g. modeling and analysis of usage and development of
experience in networks, acceptance of experience-based derived solutions),
and business administration/economics (e.g. assessing the economic value
of EM in enterprises).
The overall objective of this workshop is to provide an interdisciplinary
forum where practitioners and researchers can exchange ideas, concepts
and solutions concerning the design and implementation of Experience
Management systems, present practical experiences from applications in
any domain, and discuss future research directions.
Topics of Interest
As already expressed in the aforementioned workshop, submissions from
all areas contributing to the development and application of intelligent
EM systems are welcome. We explicitly encourage paper submissions which
are not mainstream but from communities within mathematica, social sciences
or economics in order to obtain a more interdisciplinary view on the subject.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
* Modeling, representation, discovery, and use of experience
* Case-Based Reasoning
* Retrieval techniques
* Semantic technologies
* Data-driven EM, EM with big data
* Methods and approaches for integrating EM into organizations and their
* Software engineering aspects of EM systems
* Case studies for EM from any application domain (e.g. finance, industry 4.0, commerce, eHealth, science, cloud computing)
* Aspects of EM in organizations (e.g. Demographic shifts and HR challenges among others)
* EM in society, energy and sustainability

The target group includes researchers and practitioners who are interested
in developing, applying and analyzing EM systems and the scenarios they
can be used in.
All workshop participants have to register for the WM 2017 conference.
All papers are to be submitted via the EasyChair system and can be submitted here: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=gwem2017.
Papers should be in Springer LNCS format. Author's instructions, along with LaTeX and Word macro files, are available at Springer's website.
Submissions should be original papers that have not already been published elsewhere. However, papers may include previously published results that support a new theme, as long as all past publications are fully referenced.
We accept two types of submissions: Full papers (up to 16 pages) and Short papers (up to five pages). Full papers are for mature work, requiring lengthy explanations of the conceptual background, methodology and data as well as an analysis. Short papers are for work that makes significant contributions, but that is still in progress, of smaller scale, or that can be reported briefly.
Submission deadline for workshop contributions: January 12, 2017
Notification of acceptance of the papers: February 8, 2017
Camera-ready copy of the papers due: February 22, 2017
GWEM at WM2017 in Karlsruhe: 5.-7. April 2017
For any questions do not hesitate to contact us.
