Call for Papers Knowledge Management Research & Practice: Special Issue on Knowledge Management and Collaboration IMPORTANT DATES Publication: KMRP Volume 10, issue 4, December 2012 Paper Submissions: 31st August 2011 Acceptance Notification: 31st December 2011 Second round (if needed): 30th April 2012 Final version due: 30th June 2012 This Special Issue stems from a workshop on "Knowledge Management and Collaboration" that took place on 24th May 2011, as part of the 2011 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS 2011), IEEE/ACM International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA http://cts2011.cisedu.info/. Description SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES Knowledge Management (KM) has been occupying, at least since the beginning of the nineties, an increasingly important place within organizations. The necessity to manage both explicit and tacit knowledge created and used in organizations has increased rapidly in recent years. Organizations have become aware of the importance of the invaluable capital owned by their members which corresponds to their experiences and accumulated knowledge about the firm's activities. Maintaining this capital is a powerful means to improve the level of economic performance of an organization. Thus, companies should invest in knowledge management projects in order to amplify the creation, the sharing and the transfer of explicit and tacit knowledge. Several techniques can be considered to develop and implement knowledge management and organizational memory systems, according to the type of organization, its needs, and its culture as well as the nature of knowledge to be capitalized. For example, knowledge-based approaches, corporate semantic web, case-based reasoning (CBR)-based approaches, ontology based approaches, agent-based approaches, etc. The objective of this Special Issue is to gather contributions from both researchers and practitioners to discuss methodological, technical and organizational aspects of knowledge management, feedback of KM applications, especially using collaboration techniques for KM and employing KM to increase effective collaboration. Researchers and practitioners are invited to propose recent advances in methodologies, models and tools for managing knowledge in organizations and to discuss experiences of successful or unsuccessful knowledge management projects enhancing collaboration. Papers are welcomed in any research area concerning knowledge management and discovery such as knowledge engineering, artificial intelligence, information systems, and the knowledge economy. Target applications of this research and real world practice case studies include the following: automobile, biology, design, education, medicine, telecommunications, aeronautics and space, tourism, finance, public administration, social, etc. Topics (include but are not limited to):  Methodologies and Tools for Knowledge Management
