ECKM is the longest running Academic KM Conference in Europe.
It has run in Universities in many cities around Europe, including: Paris, Lisbon, Dublin, Oxford, Glasgow, Aix-au-Province, Bled, Venice, Nice, Belfast, to mention only a few. More than 2,000 academics ranging from Deans of Faculties and Schools to PhD candidates have previously attended. This is in addition to a growing following of people from business who have discovered ECKM as a great source of international networking.
The conference is generally attended by participants from more than 40 countries and attracts an interesting combination of academic scholars, practitioners and individuals who are engaged in various aspects of Knowledge Management. A number of journals including the Electronic Journal of Knowledge Management publish the results of research presented at this conference. The conference hosts a PhD and Master colloquium and also a competition for the Best Case History describing a successful KM application.
ECKM 2017 is being held at Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC).
Video: Knowledge Cafe at KM Egypt 2010
This video was taken at KM Egypt in September 2010 where I was invited to run a Knowledge Cafe.
It is probably one of the best videos that not only describes my Knowledge Cafes but where you also get to see it in action and hear some of the insights from the people taking part.
Note: the room and the tables are not the ideal setting for a Knowledge Cafe nor is the reporting back process but often the Cafe needs to be adapted to fit the room and the number of participants.
