Workshop on Peer-to-Peer and Agent Infrastructures for Knowledge Management
IT infrastructures that build on centralized information systems architectures, e.g. Web servers, have shown their benefits in many situations. Typically, they are successful to support knowledge management when knowledge processes are comparatively rigid and when it is easy to estimate the value of knowledge to be contributed to such a centralized repository. Unfortunately, knowledge-intensive work frequently exhibits some different characteristics: * It happens sporadically; * It is not tightly embedded in standardized processes or knowledge structures; * It often includes new domains of interest for the knowledge worker; * It requires a lot of ad-hoc interaction with other knowledge workers; * Its value is hard to assess, and it will end up in a set of best-practices only after a long time. Consequently, such knowledge-intensive work and best practices are often not easily accessible by the knowledge worker's organisation and a lot of redundant work may be performed in the organisation. Peer-to-Peer and Agent Infrastructures serve the needs of knowledge workers for a more flexible knowledge sharing environment adapted to their personal needs and up-to-date with regard to ad-hoc knowledge provided by others. They integrate various technologies, e.g., ontologies for knowledge sharing and reuse, collaboration support like CSCW systems, and personalized information services to deal with issues such as: * manifold logically and physically dispersed actors and knowledge sources, * different degrees of formalization of knowledge, * different kinds of (web-based) services and (legacy) systems, * conflicts between local (individual) and global (group or organizational) goals. In this workshop we invite contributions which illustrate methodological, technical and application aspects of Peer-to-Peer and Agent Infrastructures for Knowledge Management.
ECAI 2004 Workshop on Agent-Mediated Knowledge Management (AMKM-04)
Knowledge Management (KM) has been a predominant trend in business in the recent years. Not only is Knowledge Management an important field of application for mature AI and related technologies, such as CBR for intelligent lessons-learned systems, or Text Classification for Information Push services; it also provides new challenges to the AI community, like context-aware knowledge delivery. Scaling-up research prototypes to real-world solutions usually requires an application-driven integration of several basic technologies, e.g., ontologies for knowledge sharing and reuse, collaboration support like CSCW systems, and personalized information services. Typical characteristics to be dealt with in such an integration are: * manifold logically and physically dispersed actors and knowledge sources, * different degrees of formalization of knowledge, * different kinds of (web-based) services and (legacy) systems, * conflicts between local (individual) and global (group or organizational) goals. Agent approaches have already been successfully employed for many partial solutions within the overall picture: Agent-based workflow, cooperative information gathering, intelligent information integration, or personal information agents, are established techniques in this area. In order to cope with the inherent complexity of a more comprehensive solution, the concept of Agent-mediated Knowledge Management (AMKM) deals with collective aspects of the domain in an attempt to cope with the conflict between desired order and actual behavior in dynamic environments. AMKM introduces a social layer, which structures the society of agents by defining specific roles and possible interactions between them. In this workshop we invite contributions which illustrate methodological, technical and application aspects of Agent-mediated Knowledge Management.

KMWorld & Intranets Conference
Knowledge Management is neither theory nor dream, but at work today, totally integrated into daily business and work processes. A reality check for the business manager, this year’s KMWorld Conference and Exhibition looks directly at improving business processes and solving urgent business problems. KMWorld aligns perfectly with programs featured in Intranets, a complimentary event focused on the key infrastructure supporting knowledge sharing within organizations. The Intranets conference features a special shared track with KMWorld, Content Management, and focuses on Intranet governance and strategies, user design and information architecture, information discovery and search as well as portals and workspaces, collaboration tools and practices.
