I-KNOW 2010 brings together international researchers (in the English speaking scientific tracks) and practitioners (in the German speaking Praxisforum) from the fields of knowledge management and knowledge technologies. Opening and closing keynotes and a conference-wide exhibition complete the I-KNOW conference program. Deadline CfP: 8 March 2010

Call for Papers
I. Knowledge Management

Knowledge management has become an organizational imperative for all types of corporate and governmental organizations. A key objective is to apply knowledge which resides within an organization to achieve organization’s goals most efficiently and cost-effectively. To implement knowledge management in organizations, different aspects from different disciplines have to be taken into account. Topics include but are not limited to:

Theories for Knowledge Management
Concepts for Knowledge Management
Models for Knowledge Management
Innovative Approaches to Knowledge Management
Evaluations and Use Case Studies of Knowledge Management
II. Knowledge Discovery

Knowledge Discovery aims at supporting search, visualization and analysis of complex knowledge spaces like the Web, corporate intranets, media etc. and thus providing knowledge in a format appropriate for human information processing. Crucial points herein are the identification of meaningful relationships between information entities, efficient user feedback, scaleable algorithms as well as methods for increasing information and algorithmic quality. We are seeking for novel algorithmic and application oriented contributions along the following topics:

Information Retrieval and Search Visualization
Knowledge & Information Visualization
Semantic Enhanced Knowledge Discovery
Knowledge Discovery in the Future Internet
Information Quality in the Web
Knowledge Relationship Discovery and Statistical Relational Learning
Large Scale Knowledge Discovery
Text Mining & Semantic Enrichment
III. Knowledge Services

Knowledge Services aim at supporting knowledge work, individual workplace learning, community learning, and organizational learning – as well as the transitions between them. This support is today typically provided via (composite) software services (e.g. web-services or SOA) which analyze the relationships between users, content, and semantic structures. Specific focus is given on usage data analysis and user feedback utilization. Beyond application within organizations such services can provide support for Science 2.0, knowledge maturing, etc. This track focuses on the design and Evaluation of Knowledge Services such as

User context detection services
User profile modelling and maintenance services
Context-aware recommendation services
Collaborative knowledge construction and modelling services
Collaborative knowledge maturing services
Knowledge sharing and communication services
..which are based on Knowledge Technologies such as

Web 2.0 and Future Internet
Social Network Analysis
Adaptive, context-aware systems
Semantic technologies
Mobile computing approaches
Web-services, SOA, service orchestration
Linked-open data
Trust & privacy approaches
IV. Social Media

In contrast to traditional media, Social Media refers to a range of new media concepts that tap into social networks as a way of propagating and aggregating information. While recent research suggests that social networks play an important role in the spread of information, little is known about how network structures specifically influence information processing activities on the web. This track seeks submissions that focus on understanding and modeling social media applications and processes.

Models of propagation and influence in twitter, blogs and social tagging systems
models of expertise and trust in twitter, wikis, newsgroups, question and answering systems
Agent-based models of social media
Models of emergent social media properties
Cooperation and collaboration models
Modeling social media users and their motivations and goals
Architectural and framework models
User modeling and behavioural models
Social Media Engineering
V. Enterprise 2.0 and Social Web: Case Studies and Evaluations

Web 2.0 has emerged as the new dynamic user-centered Web equipped with social features – it has empowered users to become the main creators of content. Driven by this fundamental change innovative enterprises strive to adopt applications and technologies from the Social Web to facilitate inter- and intraorganizational knowledge transfer. To fully exploit the huge potential of the Social Web for Knowledge Management, managers need to master the emerging field of tension between the fundamental principles from the Social Web, e.g. the self-organization of its users vs. the prevailing hierarchical structures in enterprises. This track focuses on experiments, evaluations and case-studies and not so much on the underlying technologies. Topics include but are not limited to:

Enterprise 2.0
Corporate Web 2.0
Social Networking (Services) and the Enterprise
Wikis, (Micro-)Blogs and the Enterprise
Computer-Mediated Communication and Computer-Supported Collaborative Work with Social Media
Communities and Social Media
Knowledge Transfer, Sharing and Diffusion with Social Media
Knowledge Management in the Future Internet of People, Content and Knowledge
Knowledge Management and Business Model Innovation
Web 2.0 and Viral Marketing

Paper Submission
We look forward to the submission of your full paper in English of up to 8 pages in PDF.
