Call for Papers

Workshop on „Knowledge Management“ (Fach­gruppe Wissens­management/SIG Knowledge Management)

at LWDA 2019, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, 30.09.-02.10.2019 (https://hu.berlin/lwda2019)

The annual workshop FGWM is organized by the Special Interest Group on Knowledge Management of the German Informatics society (GI). It aims at enabling and promoting the exchange of innovative ideas and practical applications in the field of knowledge and experience management.

All submissions of current research from this and adjacent areas are welcome, in particular, work in progress contributions. The latter can serve as a basis for discussions among the participants and provide young researchers with feedback. We also invite researchers to contribute to the workshop by re-submitting accepted conference papers to share their current work with the research community. Note that re-submissions are presented at the workshop but are not included in the proceedings.

Topics of Interest

Submissions from all areas contributing to the development and application of knowledge and experience management systems are welcome. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

The official workshop languages are German and English. In particular, contributions can be in English or German but presentations should be in English to ensure that English speaking participants can always follow. Please have a look at the “WM-Workshop Manifesto” below for convincing reasons to submit to and participate in the FG WM-Workshop.

Intended Audience

The target group includes researchers and practitioners who are interested in developing, applying and analyzing knowledge and experience management systems as well as application scenarios. The workshop is also a great and affordable platform for young researchers to present their work to a larger group of researchers and get valuable feedback.

Submission Guidelines

We intend to publish the proceedings as a CEUR Workshop Proceedings volume (http://ceur-ws.org). These proceedings may contain full papers (up to 12 pages LNCS format) and short papers (about 5 pages LNCS format) that went through peer-review.

We also solicit one-pager summaries for re-submissions that were recently published at other renowned conferences. These summaries are not included in the proceedings.

All contributions must be submitted via EasyChair as PDF at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lwda2019

Please select the track “FG-KM” when submitting your paper.

All papers should be formatted with Springer LNCS: href=www.springer.com/computer/lncs.

All workshop participants have to register for the LWDA 2019 conference.

Workshop Manifesto

The SIG Knowledge Management (Fach­gruppe Wissens­management, in short FGWM) of the German Informatics Society (GI) annually organizes a workshop within the LWDA workshop series. The SIG compiled a list of reasons why attendance to that workshop is attractive and why it is unique among the many existing conferences and workshops on topics related to knowledge management.

The workshop is not a mini-conference but a real workshop because

Therefore the workshop provides the opportunity for young researchers (even excellent master students) to

The workshop is a forum for testing the viability of new ideas (by junior as well as senior researchers) before more effort and resources are put into these ideas. Since the workshop attracts students as well as senior members of the community it plays a vital role in

The workshop is enriched by including a few top-notch papers already presented at international venues. Since nobody can attend all relevant conferences any more this is a good opportunity to catch up on missed papers. The workshop is the forum for connecting with the German knowledge management community. Last but not least, the workshop has a very low participation fee and is thus much more affordable than pre-conference workshops which can usually only be attended when also registering to the main conference (with the full conference fee).

A statement by a young researcher why she finds the workshop series attractive

“The workshop offers a unique opportunity for the promotion of young researchers. With its low participation fee and the informal nature it provides a platform for young PhD students and advanced MSc students to present their projects and theses to a larger audience. It is thus an excellent opportunity to gain first experiences in scientific practice and exchange. The possibility to take part in scientific discourse already at an early stage is very valuable to young researchers. In the field of knowledge management, this is a unique feature of the FGWM workshop. Besides getting useful feedback on their work from senior researchers outside their own research group, young researchers profit from an exchange of experiences with fellow PhD students from other universities.”

A statement by a senior researcher why he finds the workshop series attractive

“The FGWM workshop provides senior researchers not only with a platform for presenting their own research interests and discuss presented work, but also offers the opportunity to share best practices on PhD supervision among different universities and research institutions. Senior researchers can pass along experience on project proposal writing, project management, and evaluation. At this venue senior researchers are easily approachable and can help with issues PhD students might not want to discuss with their supervisors. Further, students can easily investigate career opportunities in academia.”
