i-KNOW is a top-tier international conference in the areas of knowledge management and knowledge computing. Since 2001, i-KNOW has developed into the crystallization point for different disciplines of knowledge computing, such as knowledge discovery, knowledge analysis, knowledge visualization, social computing, mobile computing, context-aware computing, etc.
i-KNOW has successfully brought together World´s leading researchers and developers from these communities to present and discuss their approaches and explore novel ways of integrating them. This multitude of approaches, all applied to the management of knowledge, accounts for the highly innovative atmosphere of this conference. i-KNOW annually attracts over 500 international attendees with an attractive program and excellent keynotes.
In order to foster synergies among the research fields of knowledge discovery, social computing, and semantic technologies the I-KNOW Conference will be held together with the I-SEMANTICS Conference.
- Like all major societal challenges, knowledge and innovation management touches diverse aspects of life and thus needs a multi-disciplinary approach for finding solutions. i-KNOW addresses this by including experts and researchers from Computer Science,Business Science, and the Social Sciences. This interdisciplinary environment offers the opportunity to establish collaborations, strengthen links and cross-fertilize core disciplines.
- For 13 years now, i-KNOW has brought together researchers, practitioners, entrepreneurs, CTOs, CIOs and technology developers in Knowledge Management and Knowledge Computing to address the current challenges and advances in the field. With nearly 50% of participants coming from business or industry the I-KNOW offers the unique setting for in-depth discussions between researchers and practitioners. i-KNOW 2013 goes beyond the enterprise focus by also addressing the application of knowledge management approaches to science.
- The i-KNOW conference series has the tradition of bringing together Europe’s and US leading researchers with local practitioners. Deliberately reaching out to the Americas, I-KNOW offers impulses and insights from additional research communities which otherwise would be left untapped.
i-KNOW 2013 will continue the successful tradition of the conference series and will specifically provide interactive and innovative formats to support the synergies of knowledge management and knowledge computing fields.
