Second Call for Papers *** Deadline October 20, 2003

Knowledge Supply and Information Logistics in Enterprises and
Networked Organizations

International Workshop
associated with the Multi-Konferenz Wirtschaftsinformatik MKWI'2004
March 9 thru 11, 2004

Workshop Focus

For a high percentage of today's businesses, it is of decisive strategic
importance to optimize the internal information flow and to implement an
efficient reuse of existing knowledge. Especially in knowledge-intensive
industry and service sectors, information is a major factor in production
processes, and knowledge reflects an important asset of the enterprise.
Intelligent information supply has become a core issue that is
characterized by just-in-time, demand-oriented and context-sensitive
information. This demand can be found in enterprises with several
locations as well as in networks of organizations.

Experience shows that successful solutions for intelligent information
supply involve several ingredients: a sound business case with clearly
defined benefits and returns for the (networked) enterprise, a clear
understanding of the user's demand including the work context, and the
right use of "enabling technologies" like information logistics,
knowledge management or ubiquitous computing.

In the context of enabling technologies, Internet and IT-technologies
have caused tremendous achievements and opened up the perspective of
total information availability in the information society - every
person might receive any information at every location. In this context
the question of the right logistics for information becomes a key issue
addressing the challenge of not distributing all but only the right
information to the right person at the right point in time.
Major questions for this type of applications are how to model and derive
user demands, personalization of information delivery, detection,
selection, aggregation of information services, prognoses for information
demand and points in time for delivery, distribution and presentation
of information in a mobile environment with different types of user

This workshop aims at presenting concepts, technologies, and solutions
for intelligent information supply in an (networked) enterprise context.
Researchers, software developers and end users are invited to contribute
to the discussion by presenting application problems, giving experience
reports, or by introducing concepts, methods, and software solutions.
Priority will be given to contributions bringing together business cases
and enabling technologies.
