Call for Papers, Workshops and Tutorials
Today, knowledge and intellectual capital plays a principal role in the delivery of corporate performance. This importance is reflected in the fact that companies, without the force of any regulations, start to measure their knowledge and intellectual capital, they even produce and externally publish intellectual capital statements; accounting guidelines are being developed and standards are being questioned and reviewed; and governments are beginning to measure the intellectual capital of cities, regions, and countries. Companies and investors alike are trying to measure their intellectual capital and the value of knowledge. However, it seems as if the field has reached a point of maturity where we need to address issues around taxonomies and research methodology. In a recent special issue of a leading journal in the field (Marr & Chatzkel, 2004) these issues were highlighted. The concept of knowledge or intellectual capital is often poorly defined and is addressed from multiple disciplinary perspectives which all give it slightly different meanings.
The International Conference on Intellectual Capital, Knowledge Management and Organisational Learning (ICICKM 2008) invites researchers, practitioners and academics to present their research findings, work in progress, case studies and conceptual advances in any branch of the above fields. The conference brings together varied groups of people with different perspectives, experiences and knowledge in one location. It aims to help practitioners find ways of putting research into practice and researchers to gain an understanding of real-world problems, needs and aspirations. In addition to multiple streams of papers, the conference committee are inviting proposals for workshops and tutorials on topics related to KM and research methods applicable to this field.
The conference in October 2008 is seeking quantitative, qualitative and experience-based papers from industry and academe. Topics may include but are not limited to: Frameworks for conceptualising KM; Parameters of the field of study; Knowledge creation and sharing mechanisms; Knowledge asset valuation models; Impact on organizational learning; Impact on business strategy; Architectures for KM systems; Integration of knowledge from different groups in an organization; Knowledge sharing between different groups in an organization; How to initiate KM; Value of tacit knowledge; Resourcing KM; Competitive advantages; KM case studies; The evaluation of KM; KM and the Web and e-Business; Structural capital; Interorganisational relationships; Strategic alignment; Intangible assets and resources; Human capital; Organisational learning; Experiential learning; Participatory learning; Intellectual capital;
