I-KNOW '03

3rd International Conference on Knowledge Management
Graz (Austria) - Europe's Cultural Capital 2003

July 2-4 2003


Objectives and Background

It is widely recognized that the transition to an information society
and a global knowledge economy will be the most important social and
economic changes of the next decade. The global knowledge economy with
an extremely high innovation speed and an increasing number of knowledge
intensive products and services calls for new management tools and
methods. Therefore, efficient management of knowledge has become
imperative for almost all types of organizations.

"Industry meets Science" is the motto of I-KNOW '03. Our objective is to
increase the synergies in knowledge management between academics and
practitioners. To achieve this objective we will design a well-balanced
program consisting of scientific and industry presentations.

As knowledge management has much to do with communication and networking
we want to provide plenty of room to foster the knowledge transfer among
the attendees of I-KNOW '03: Three conference workshops and one tutorial
will serve as platforms for in-depth discussions and networking with
experts in selected fields of knowledge management.

The I-KNOW '03 is the third conference of a series of an international
conference on knowledge management organized by the Know-Center,
Austrias first applied research institute for knowledge management. We
managed to attract 150 participants in 2001 and more than 230
participants in
