Learning and Knowledge Management

There has been a continuously lively debate in the field of (e)learning and knowledge management for the last 25 years by academics and professionals alike. The field has changed substantially over this period and today. Powerful mobile and wearable devices enable employees to receive and share knowledge in any workplace situation and to be constantly connected with their knowledge and learning network. Businesses and organizations are busy to deploy technologies for capturing and making sense of (big) data assets in these social knowledge environments. Thereby, organizations need to find a balance between opening up for facilitating innovation processes and the need to define the knowledge boundaries.

Individual, team and organizational learning and knowledge processes and practices are tied into large-scale knowledge and learning systems. SMEs join networks to cope with the faster innovation cycles and to localize knowledge from global knowledge hubs. Cities are investing in technology to become smart cities, regions ready themselves to tap into the potential of global knowledge creation and many questions arise around how we can sustain knowledge societies that bridge across regional, national or continental boundaries. This track intends to offer a platform for discussing recent advancements concerning learning and knowledge managements from a business, economics, managerial, organizational, social, technological and societal perspective. We encourage submissions of papers employing a conceptual, design or behavioral research approach.
