Second International Workshop on Theory and Applications of Knowledge Management

TAKMA 2001

In Conjunction with DEXA 2001

Munich, Germany

September 3 - 7, 2001

Submission deadline extended !


Knowledge within an organisation is one of the most important assets. In industrialised countries we can observe the shifting to global markets, which chance the nature of work and of workforce itself. The most successful enterprises in this new "world" will be those who recognise the importance of knowledge management and investigate time and money in this new and very important field.

Knowledge Management is a field which must be investigated by academic researchers together with developers and users from the industry and public administration. Therefore researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers to the TAKMA 2001 workshop.


The main topics of TAKMA 2001 will include, but are not limited to:


·        Extracting Knowledge from Documents

·        Knowledge Distilation using Intranets/Extranets

·        Knowledge Integration

·        Visualisation/Knowledge Media

·        HCI Processes in Knowledge Management

·        KM Methods

·        Interaction between Workflow and Knowledge Management

·        Organisational Learning

·        Building Organisational Memories

·        Measuring the Benefits of KM

·        Support Tools for Developing New Knowledge

·        KM Technology Environments

·        Case Studies
