Call For Papers


The PAKM Conference Series offers a communication forum and meeting ground for practitioners and researchers. The conference focus is on developing and deploying advanced business solutions for the management of knowledge in organizations and other communities that can benefit from its methods.

This year's conference we will pay particular attention to the innovations on the interaction between Business, Computer Science, Information Systems, and Library and Information Science.

PAKM is a forum for people to share their views, to exchange novel ideas, to develop new insights, and to envision, propose and demonstrate new kinds of solutions and new organizational methods and/or tools to Knowledge Management problems.

Management in companies deals with many things: people, energy, materials, etc. The management integrates them as a whole system and organizes the flow between the parts efficiently. In some companies, the same is done with knowledge. What methods are available and how well this integration of knowledge is understood?

Libraries and universities are examples of organizations where knowledge plays a major role within management. What methods are available to integrate knowledge (e.g., curricula, expertise, centers of excellence, programs) with people and other resources in libraries and universities?

The topics will cover relevant and applicable aspects of knowledge management. We invite practitioners and researchers from all over the world to submit papers. We are looking forward to a conference which will address a wide spectrum of topics from a variety of perspectives.

We seek original contributions in the business and organization sciences, cognitive science, library and information science, information systems and computer science that represent a true advancement beyond the state-of-the-art of Knowledge Management.

Business and organization sciences provide the overall framework for developing a knowledge management approach with a focus on the business aspects rather than on information technology aspects.

Computer science provides the tools needed to build the information systems that are often required to make certain aspects of a knowledge management solution work. Cognitive science helps to design knowledge management solutions in line with the cognitive capabilities of the people involved and optimally embedded in their work context.

Library and information science analyzes how to organize and understand knowledge for the benefit of the users.

Papers Due: 7-Apr-10
Notification of acceptance: 28-May-10
Camera-ready Due: 7-Jul-10


We wish to encourage the submission of contributions that espouse an interdisciplinary approach, which will therefore be favored over one-dimensional papers.

Apart from a clear description of the real-world problems they address, papers must point out the business and/or the scientific benefits of the suggested solutions for a knowledge management task of an organization or community. Furthermore, papers should emphasize the novel aspects of the suggested approach.

Submissions will be anonymous and subject to blind reviews.

Papers MUST be submitted in Springer LNCS format, with a maximum of 12 pages. Authors' instructions are available on the web at
