               5th International Conference on
 Practical Aspects of Knowledge Management

                     CALL FOR PAPERS

To succed in a world characterisied by the accelerating pace of the
"internet age", organisations must efficiently leverage their most
valuable and underleveraged 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. PAKM2004 addresses all aspects of Knowledge Management
and their role in next-generation business solutions. We seek original
contributions in the triangle of business and organization sciences,
cognitive science, and computer science that represent a true
advancement beyond the state-of-the-art of Knowledge Management:

  a.. Building and maintaining knowledge inventories
  - knowledge directories
  - automatic creation of semantic annotations
  - skill management
  b.. Collaboration and knowledge sharing
  - social and cultural aspects of knowledge sharing communities
  - collaboration platforms
  - integration of processes across organizational boundaries
  c.. Capturing and securing knowledge
  - knowledge capturing within business processes
  - lessons learned and debriefing
  - organizational memories
  d.. Knowledge utilization
  - content-oriented search through ontology-based sematic annotations
  - integration of knowledge and business processes
  - graphical user interfaces for retrieving and visualizing knowledge
  e.. Developing new knowledge
  - innovation management
  - ontology learning and development
  - knowledge mining (from data, text and the Web)
  f.. Measurement
  - measuring the benefits of knowledge management solutions
  - benchmarking
  - intellectual capital
