DOME, NGIN and ICKM 2014

I am right now heading home from the International Conference on Knowledge Management (ICKM) 2014 conference held this year in Antalya, Turkey. The conference offered an interesting mix of a bit more practical insights and academic work on IKM. This year's even was spiced with a little extra talk about research data as the event was colocated with Information Management in the Changing World (IMCW) conference. The talks by Kevin Ashley (DCC, UK), Michael Seadle (Humboldt Universität) and Rafael Ball (Universität Regensburg) gave a good overview of the current issues in research data management especially in humanities.

I was representing the DOME project at the ICKM with a paper on the rationale of assuming a knowledge management perspective to the successful development and deployment of patient access to medical records. My second talk on developing a new model for studying information and knowledge sharing in the context of the NGIN project based at teh School of Business and Economics at Åbo Akademi University.

Slides for the two presentations can be found on this web site (A knowledge management perspective to online patient access to medical records and A multi-perspective framework for knowledge sharing research)

Archaeology and Archaeological Information in the Digital Society shows how the digitization of archaeological information, tools and workflows, and their interplay with both old and new non-digital practices throughout the archaeological information process, affect the outcomes of archaeological work, and in the end, our general understanding of the human past.
