Practical Aspects of Knowledge Management: PAKM 2010
November 10-12, 2010, Philadelphia, USA

The PAKM Conference Series offers a communication forum and meeting ground for practitioners and researchers. The conference focus is on developing and deploying advanced business solutions for the management of knowledge in organizations and other communities that can benefit from its methods.

We wish to encourage the submission of contributions that espouse an interdisciplinary approach, which will therefore be favored over one-dimensional papers.

Apart from a clear description of the real-world problems they address, papers must point out the business and/or the scientific benefits of the suggested solutions for a knowledge management task of an organization or community. Furthermore, papers should emphasize the novel aspects of the suggested approach.
