Since the early 1990, the importance of Knowledge Management (KM) and Innovation Management (IM) to create an organization's competitive advantage has been widely recognized worldwide in the government, public and private sectors. KM and IM are interdisciplinary and complex areas of study by integrating technology centered and human centered approaches from the perspective of system science. The need for learning and innovation capability is critical for organizations, thus KM and Intellectual Capital have an important role to play as a catalyst for the success of the organization.
This international KM conference, started in 2004 (KMAP), has now been renamed as “International Conference on Innovation and Knowledge Management in Asia Pacific (IKMAP)” to include the important element of “innovation management”. The conference has been held in different cities before including Hong Kong, Taipei, Bangkok, Wellington of New Zealand as well as Guangzhou, Xian and Shanghai of China. This year's conference is co-organized by The Japan Intellectual Capital Management Association and Knowledge Management and Innovation Research Centre (KMIRC) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and will be held in Kobe, an important port city and also one of the most attractive cities in Japan.
The conference aims to provide a cross-cultural platform for Knowledge Management practitioners and academics in Asia to network with their counterparts in the West and vice versa. Also, it aims to discuss the topics of mutual interests, and navigate together the next generation of Knowledge and Innovation Management and enhance international networking and collaborations.
