This will be the third time that such a conference takes place but it is for the first time in Europe. The main purpose of this event is to give to international organizations, industries, companies, institutions and universities the opportunity to present and discuss their Knowledge Management programmes and projects. Moreover, the event aims to highlight new technology applications and promoting collaboration across international entities in the field of knowledge capture, sharing and preservation.

The conference’s focus is on Knowledge Management (KM) topics for the aerospace community. However, the findings and recommendations could be also relevant to different sectors and this is especially addressed in the dedicated track, 'Knowledge Management for Integrated Applications'.
