PAKM2008: 7th International Conference on Practical Aspects of Knowledge 

Hiyoshi Campus, Keio University, Japan
Nov. 21 -- 23, 2008

Call for Papers: Submission deadline is 15, July 2008
Call for Workshop Proposals: --> Extended submission deadline is 15, 
July 2008


The PAKM Conference Series offers a communication forum and meeting 
ground for practitioners and researchers in developing and deploying 
advanced business solutions for the management of knowledge in 
organizations. PAKM is a forum for people to share their views, to 
exchange ideas, to develop new insights, and to envision completely new 
kinds of solutions to Knowledge Management problems.

The topics will cover all relevant 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.

Call for Papers

PAKM2008 addresses all aspects of Knowledge Management and their role in 
next-generation business solutions. We seek original contributions in 
the triangle of business and organization sciences, cognitive science, 
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.

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 benefits of the suggested solutions. 
Furthermore, papers should emphasize the novel aspects of the suggested 
approach. Papers may address one or more of the following topics or any 
other topic as long as it fits into the overall conference theme:

Building and maintaining knowledge inventories
Knowledge directories
Knowledge modeling
Automatic creation of meta data
Knowledge integration

Collaboration and knowledge sharing
Knowledge sharing communities
Social software
Knowledge sharing and collaboration platforms
Integration of processes across organizational boundaries

Capturing and securing knowledge
