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.

By explicitly addressing interdisciplinary approaches to Knowledge Management, the PAKM conference offers a unique and new kind of forum.
