Call for Papers, Posters, Round Table Proposals, Practitioner Contributions and Product Demonstrations

Today, knowledge and intellectual capital plays a principal role in the delivery of corporate performance. This importance is reflected in the fact that companies, without the force of any regulations, start to measure their knowledge and intellectual capital, they even produce and externally publish intellectual capital statements; accounting guidelines are being developed and standards are being questioned and reviewed; and governments are beginning to measure the intellectual capital of cities, regions, and countries. Companies and investors alike are trying to measure their intellectual capital and the value of knowledge. However, it seems as if the field has reached a point of maturity where we need to address issues around taxonomies and research methodology. In a recent special issue of a leading journal in the field (Marr & Chatzkel, 2004) these issues were highlighted. The concept of knowledge or intellectual capital is often poorly defined and is addressed from multiple disciplinary perspectives which all give it slightly different meanings.

The conference committee welcomes contributions on a wide range of topics using a range of scholarly approaches including theoretical and empirical papers employing qualitative, quantitative and critical methods. Action research, case studies and work-in-progress/posters are welcomed approaches. PhD Research, proposals for roundtable discussions, non-academic contributions and product demonstrations based on the main themes are also invited.

Academic Paper submissions
Papers should address one of the topics listed in this call for papers and can describe a wide range of research including empirical or theoretical studies. In addition, philosophical papers presenting an argument and papers presenting a process that has been developed and is now ready for wider use are welcome. In all cases concepts and underlying principles should be emphasised, with enough background information to orient any reader who is not a specialist in the particular subject area original. The work should not have been published elsewhere and should not be intended to be published elsewhere during the review period. See the submission details given below.

Work in Progress/Posters
Researchers are invited to submit current projects which are either at the proposal stage or are work in progress. In the first instance you should submit an abstract describing the project. If your abstract is selected you will be asked to produce a short positioning paper of no more than 2000 words (including abstract, keywords, references). The paper will be double-blind peer reviewed and if accepted will be published in the conference proceedings. Presentation of the work at the conference will take the form of a Poster. Posters will be on display for the duration of the conference and there will be a timetabled slot for contributors to stand by their posters so that participants can come and discuss the research.

PhD Research

Doctoral Candidates are invited to submit papers describing their research. To be eligible, it is necessary for the paper to be produced to a publishable academic standard and papers will be subject to the same criteria and processes as research papers. However the final results of the research may not have been fully completed and interpreted.

Case Study Submissions
Case study submissions should be written to publishable standards. Case studies will be subject to the same criteria and the processes as research papers.

Non-Academic Contributions
The conference committee welcomes contributions from individuals and organisations working in the field. These contributions can take the form of a presentation or a demonstration. In the first instance and abstract should be submitted describing the work to be presented. If the abstract is selected you will be asked whether you wish to produce a paper, a poster or just give a presentation. You will need to register for the conference to have a confirmed timetabled slot.

Round Table Proposals
The Programme Committee invites topical subjects to be proposed for discussion. In the first instance an abstract describing the proposed topic should be submitted. If selected the convener will be given a timetabled slot for the round table and will be expected to register to attend the conference.

The proceedings have an ISBN and ICICKM proceedings are listed in the Thomson Reuters ISI Index to Social Sciences & Humanities Proceedings (ISSHP) and the Thomson Reuters ISI Index to Social Sciences & Humanities Proceedings (ISSHP/ISI Proceedings).

Selected papers from the Conference will be considered for publication in the Electronic Journal of Knowledge Management (the latest issue, is now available online).

Important information:

The selection panel of the conference committee will consider all paper abstracts received by the submission deadline to ensure that the proposed paper is relevant to the Conference.
The authors of abstracts that describe a relevant paper will receive a notification of abstract selection.
All full papers will be double-blind reviewed by members of the conference committee to ensure an adequate standard, that the proposed subject of their abstract has been followed, that the paper is of a suitable length, the standard of English is adequate and the paper is appropriately referenced.
For authors whose first language is not English we request that you have your work proof read prior to submission by a native English speaker (or at least a fluent English speaker). Papers can be rejected due to a poor standard of English.
Papers that are accepted will be published in the conference proceedings providing at least one author registers and presents the work at the Conference (see the registration section of the conference website for more information about registration).
Due to the large number of papers expected for this conference, the committee only allows an author to present one paper. Therefore if multiple papers are accepted for presentation different co-authors need to present each paper.
