The Fourth International Workshop on Knowledge Management and Collaboration

(KMC 2015)


As part of

The 2015 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems
(CTS 2015)


June 01-05, 2015

In Cooperation with ACM, IEEE, and IFIP


Extended Submission Deadline: February 17, 2015


Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or



Knowledge Management (KM) has been occupying, at least since the beginning
of the nineties, much more important place within organizations. The
necessity to manage both explicit and tacit knowledge created and used in
organizations has increased rapidly in the recent years. Organizations have
become aware of the importance of the invaluable capital owned by their
members which corresponds to their experiences and accumulated knowledge
about the firm activities. Maintaining this capital is a powerful mean to
improve the level of economical performance of an organization. Thus,
companies should invest on knowledge management projects in order to amplify
the creation, the sharing and the transfer of explicit and tacit knowledge.


Collaboration technologies can be used to handle KM in organizations.
Several techniques can be considered to develop and implement knowledge
management and organizational memory systems, according to the types of
organization, its needs, and its culture as well as the nature of knowledge
to be capitalized. For example, Knowledge-based approaches, corporate
semantic web, CBR-based approaches, ontology based approaches, agent-based
approaches, etc.  


The objective of this multidisciplinary workshop is to gather both
researchers and practitioners to discuss methodological, technical and
organizational aspects of collaboration technologies and systems used for
knowledge management, knowledge discovery, mining, feedback of KM
applications, and especially using collaboration techniques for KM and
employing KM to increase effective collaboration. A second aspect would be
how to use collaboration systems and technologies in Knowledge management
and discovery. 


Researchers and practitioners are invited to present recent advances in
methodologies, models and tools for managing knowledge in organizations and
to discuss experiences of successful or unsuccessful knowledge management
projects. Papers are welcomed in any research area concerning knowledge
management and discovery such as knowledge engineering, artificial
intelligence, information systems, CSCW, business management, and knowledge
economy. Target applications of this research and real work case studies
could be the following: Automobile, Biology, Design, Education, Medical
Domain, Telecommunications, Aeronautics and Space, Tourism, Finance, Public
Administration, Social, etc.

- Methodologies and Tools for Knowledge Management

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above
and other topics related to knowledge management and collaboration.
Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted
elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names,
affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses.
Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6
keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400
words. The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages using the two-column
IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Short papers
(up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to  for the posters submission details)
will also be accepted for submission. Please include page numbers on all
preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful


Authors are invited to submit a PDF copy of their manuscript to the Workshop
using the following link If
the submission is for a poster, poster paper or short paper, indicate that
as well on the manuscript. 


Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded using the link above. Each paper
will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on
their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Submission
implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and
present the paper, if accepted. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee
that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. 


Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings.
Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on
the CTS 2015 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings
formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of
the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE
Digital Library and indexed by major indexing services accordingly. 


If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please
contact the organizers.
