Call for Papers

In the rapidly evolving landscape of artificial intelligence (AI) and knowledge management, the intersection of technology and societal values is more pertinent than ever. As we navigate this age of AI, it is imperative to address the profound implications it has on equity, justice, and inclusivity. This Knowledge Management Conference seeks to bring together scholars, practitioners, and thought leaders to explore and discuss strategies, challenges, and opportunities in promoting social justice through knowledge management in the era of AI.

We invite scholars, researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to submit original research papers, case studies, workshops, and proposals for sessions related to the conference tracks. We look forward to your contributions in shaping a future where AI and knowledge management are powerful tools for advancing social justice and fostering equitable and inclusive societies.

List of Topics:

Ethics and Responsible AI:

  • Exploring ethical considerations in AI and knowledge management.
  • Strategies for responsible AI implementation to mitigate biases and inequities.

Inclusive Knowledge Practices:

  • The role of knowledge management in fostering inclusivity.
  • Addressing barriers to access and participation in knowledge-sharing processes.

Community Engagement and Co-Creation:

  • Leveraging AI and knowledge management for community-driven initiatives.
  • Collaborative approaches to co-create knowledge solutions that promote social justice.

AI for Social Impact:

  • Case studies and best practices on using AI for addressing social inequalities.
  • Examining the potential of AI in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Data Governance and Privacy:

  • Ensuring equitable data governance practices in AI applications.
  • Protecting individual privacy in the age of data-driven decision-making.

Educational Initiatives:

  • Integrating AI and knowledge management in educational programs.
  • Addressing the digital divide through knowledge-sharing platforms.

Submission Guidelines

Submission templates and link will be forthcoming.

All papers must be original and not submitted to another journal or conference.

The following paper categories are welcome:

  • GUIDELINES for Full papers:

Provide full research papers describing original and unpublished work in areas relevant to the conference theme and all topics listed in the call for papers. Short papers are expected to be up to 3,000 words. Long papers or full papers are expected to be up to 6,000 words. High-quality research papers submitted to the conference will be published.

Deadline to submit: June 1, 2024

  • GUIDELINES for Posters:

Provide poster or video about recently completed work, highly relevant early results of research-in-progress, or successful systems and applications development related to knowledge management. Presenting a poster is a great way to get feedback on work that has not yet been published or in production. Presentations are an integral part of the conference with sessions scheduled for interactive discussion between presenters and attendees. Authors should submit an abstract of 300words or less that provides sufficient technical details. For posters a draft of one slide in PowerPoint of the poster can be submitted so that the evaluation committee can assess the scientific merit of the work. The poster abstracts do not have to present a completed work but should provide enough concrete evidence to support the potential validity of the proposed ideas. Your poster should encourage questions and discussion. It is fine to present any late-breaking results, work-in-progress, data sets, methodological tools, or research results at the ICKM. Coauthors are allowed only one (1) poster.

Deadline to submit:  June 15, 2024

  • GUIDELINES for Workshops:

Provide detailed description of workshop topic and presenter(s) bio. A 250-word or less abstract is required with sufficient details about activities and online learning activities so that the evaluation committee can assess the proposal. Co-authors or presenters are allowed. Explain the objectives of your workshop for learners. Workshops support an informal setting for sharing ideas and discussing future directions. You may describe a targeted audience according to topic and level of information. The IT support team will work with teachers/presenters to set up the webinar.

Deadline to submit: June 1, 2024

  • GUIDELINES for Practitioner and Work-in-Progress Abstract:

Your abstract should describe ongoing research or planned research contributions with initial results, as well as case studies or business applications so far. Length: 250 words. Describe areas related to knowledge management even without scientific underpinning or full evidence now. Presenting work-in-progress is a unique opportunity to reflect on systems under construction, ongoing R&D, and ideas before starting implementation. Work-in-progress presentations will be an integral part of the conference, with interaction between presenters and attendees. Authors should submit a description that provides sufficient background and information on the situation so that the evaluation committee can assess the practical and/or scientific merit of the work.

Deadline to submit: June 1, 2024
