Special Issue on Knowledge Management and Collaboration

Publication: KMRP Volume 10, issue 4, December 2012
Paper Submissions: 31st August 2011
Acceptance Notification: 31st December 2011
Second round (if needed): 30th April 2012
Final version due: 30th June 2012

This Special Issue stems from a workshop on “Knowledge Management and 
Collaboration” that took place on 24th May 2011, as part of the 2011 
International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS 
2011), IEEE/ACM International Conference on Collaboration Technologies 
and Systems, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA http://cts2011.cisedu.info/.

Knowledge Management (KM) has been occupying, at least since the 
beginning of the nineties, an increasingly important place within 
organizations.  The necessity to manage both explicit and tacit 
knowledge created and used in organizations has increased rapidly in 
recent years.  Organizations have become aware of the importance of the 
invaluable capital owned by their members which corresponds to their 
experiences and accumulated knowledge about the firm's activities. 
Maintaining this capital is a powerful means to improve the level of 
economic performance of an organization.  Thus, companies should invest 
in knowledge management projects in order to amplify the creation, the 
sharing and the transfer of explicit and tacit knowledge.  Several 
techniques can be considered to develop and implement knowledge 
management and organizational memory systems, according to the type of 
organization, its needs, and its culture as well as the nature of 
knowledge to be capitalized.  For example, knowledge-based approaches, 
corporate semantic web, case-based reasoning (CBR)-based approaches, 
ontology based approaches, agent-based approaches, etc.

The objective of this Special Issue is to gather contributions from both 
researchers and practitioners to discuss methodological, technical and 
organizational aspects of knowledge management, feedback of KM 
applications, especially using collaboration techniques for KM and 
employing KM to increase effective collaboration.  Researchers and 
practitioners are invited to propose recent advances in methodologies, 
models and tools for managing knowledge in organizations and to discuss 
experiences of successful or unsuccessful knowledge management projects 
enhancing collaboration.  Papers are welcomed in any research area 
concerning knowledge management and discovery such as knowledge 
engineering, artificial intelligence, information systems, and the 
knowledge economy.  Target applications of this research and real world 
practice case studies include the following: automobile, biology, 
design, education, medicine, telecommunications, aeronautics and space, 
tourism, finance, public administration, social, etc.
