  Aims and scope of the conference

  To succeed in the accelerating business pace of the "internet age",
  companies must efficiently leverage their most valuable and
  under-leveraged resource: the intellectual capital of their highly
  educated, skilled, and experienced employees. The compression of
  communication cycles and the omnipresence of information forces
  enterprises to seek a faster return on knowledge - knowledge that
  ages rapidly in a market place brimming with innovation. One of the
  most important prerequisites in achieving this return is the
  systematic management of the key success factor "knowledge" -
  previously left to manage itself "somehow".  Thus next-generation
  business solutions must be focussed on supporting the creation of
  value by adding knowledge-rich components as an integral part to
  the work process. Therefore, an integrated approach is needed which
  combines issues from a large array of fields, originating from
  quite different areas such as business and organization sciences,
  cognitive sciences, and computer science.

  The PAKM Conference Series acknowledges the above situation and
  offers a communication forum and meeting ground for practitioners
  and researchers engaged in developing and deploying advanced
  business solutions for the management of knowledge and intellectual
  capital. We seek attendance and contributions from practitioners,
  researchers, and developers who work at the leading edge of
  Knowledge Management, pursuing integrated approaches which consider
  both, the technological side as well as the proper business side.
  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. Like its predecessors,
  PAKM2000 will provide ample time for interaction and discussion.
