Knowledge Management (KM) is facing a challenging time with the advance of big data and Internet of Things (IOT) as well as cognitive learning. It is important for knowledge management to take up the challenges to help companies reach their goals and weather the tough roads ahead. Given the rise of big data, Internet of Things (IOT), disruptive technology and current market demands, knowledge management research must be aware of the new challenges. Traditional KM approaches have failed to meet the challenges posed by Big Data, mobility, social media, and customer demands. There is a strong relationship between innovation, technology and knowledge management. ICTs have great influence on KM, and therefore any innovation in ICTs is directly linked to creativity in knowledge management. Collaboration is essential in an economy based on highly specialised knowledge. There is a need to focus on fostering collaboration between individuals, teams, divisions, and organisations. It is important that we develop the skills and culture that enable high-value collaboration. Implementing a whole new set of business processes is also required to unlock the full potential of collaboration for knowledge management.

The tutorials will be held on the 4th September, 2017. The conference itself commences on the 5th September, 2017. The 6th International conference on Learning Technology for Education Challenges (LTEC 2017) will be held conjunction with KMO 2017. It will provide the scientific community with a dedicated forum for discussing research and presentation of your work. New technologies have a powerful influence on all aspects of our society including education. Many technologies have an impact on the way we teach and learn. New mobile devices (e.g., smartphones and tablets) increase student engagement with applications such as mobile augmented reality. Social networks and web 2.0 tools enable students to take a more active role in their own education, allowing them to become educational “prosumers” (i.e., both producers and consumers). Gamification, automation, big data, cloud education, MOOCs (Massive Open Online Course), Social Learning, Adaptive Learning, Immersive Learning, mLearning, Personalised learning and responsiveness are just some of the hot topics that we&#039;ll all be talking about. There is much research that shows learning technology has the potential to improve learning. Besides technologies, there are also new pedagogical advances in learning and teaching.
