actKM conference 2010

Call for Presentations
The Organising Committee is pleased to provide the opportunity for interested parties to submit proposals to present at the actKM 10 conference.
actKM 10 will be held on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th of October 2010 at University House, Australian National University (ANU) Canberra, Australia.
The theme for this year is ‘Getting Clever about Knowledge’, relating to the question of how can organisations improve the way in which they generate and manage new knowledge. It is estimated that 40 exabytes (4.0 x 1019 ) will be generated worldwide this year. That is more than the information generated in the previous 5,000 years.
“An organization’s ability to learn, and translate that learning into action rapidly, is the ultimate competitive advantage.” - Jack Welch
Most of our effort has traditionally been in managing the overwhelming volumes of information that flood organisations daily. Perhaps our efforts should be focused on generating new knowledge and seeking better ways to generate value from an organisation’s intellectual capital.
Your challenge, should you decide to accept it, is to bring your knowledge and experience to the table and engage with a discerning and interactive audience to explore possibilities to Get Clever about Knowledge for organisations in the current environment.
We are seeking submissions with a preference for interactive/experiential activities that engage conference participants in a learning or collaborative environment to foster understanding and facilitate an effective knowledge transfer. Submissions are requested by 01 June 2010.
One complimentary pass to the conference will be provided for each presentation.
