CfP HICSS-57: Minitrack "The Future of Knowledge Management: Visions, Opportunities and Challenges"
The HICSS conference brings together a broad cross-section of researchers in system sciences—including software development, social media, energy transmission, marketing systems, knowledge management and information systems. Now in its 54th year, the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS) is one of the longest-standing continuously running scientific conferences.
The field of Knowledge Management (KM) has been undergoing a fundamental transformation. On the one hand, new and emerging topics such as Responsible Knowledge Management, Spiritual Knowledge Management or KM in purpose-driven organizations are gaining traction in research and practice. On the other hand, the ever-increasing computational capacities and features of digital technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, are changing how we collaborate, communicate and connect, paving the way for increasingly powerful KM systems. What do all these changes mean for the way we understand and study knowledge and KM? This minitrack is intended to bring together novel ideas to explore the future role of KM research and KM practice in a changing and increasingly dynamic digital world. Our overall goal is to define a research agenda for KM of the future and showcase how modern and innovative KM research looks like.
Researchers and practitioners are invited to share and present their ideas and proposals which topics KM research should address in the next decade.
Prof. Kaiser and his co-chairs welcome submissions for this minitrack adopting different theoretical lenses and worldviews, using a variety of research methods and conceptual ideas, and exploring the topic with a visionary mindset.
