Dear Colleagues

Under the overall theme "People, Knowledge and Technology: What Have We Learnt So Far?" the International Conference on Knowledge Management 2004 will bring together academicians, developers, and practitioners in the areas of knowledge management and information processing. The aim of ICKM'04 is to serve as a unique forum to present research work as well as to exchange research ideas, practical applications, and best practices (see for more details).

We are particularly glad to have secured the support of eminent KM scholars as keynote speakers for each of the five conference subthemes (see for more biographical details on the keynote speakers):
