icke 2011 co-hosted by
again the Centre for Informatics Knowledge Management and Knowledge
Economy (SANCIKMKE) is calling for papers to its biannual International
Conference on Knowledge Economy (icke2011).
This time around, SANCIKMKE is joined by the Province of the
Eastern Cape, South African
Knowledge Management Professional Association (SAKMPA) and Informatics and
Knowledge Management Academy (IKMAC) in organizing the
conference. The conference is geared towards exploring the
possibilities of leveraging knowledge in order to grow economy in poorly
resourced areas of the world. Therefore,
the theme of the conference is about “Leveraging Knowledge to Grow
Economy of Under Resourced Areas” This topic seems relevant after
considering the deliberations of icke2009 which was held in 2009. In this
previous conference it was clearly articulated by speakers that in the 21st
Century knowledge is the key driver in growing economy in the world.
This conference seeks to find ways on how knowledge
can be leveraged to grow economy in under resourced areas.
Knowledge unlike natural resources is a resource that is available
everywhere in the world. Information and Communication Technologies
facilitate access to knowledge in an unprecedented way.
Therefore, what is needed is finding techniques, mechanisms and
methods on how to turn knowledge into wealth for countries and especially
the under resourced areas.
government leaders, politicians, academics, civil society and business
institutions are invited to come and deliberate on what can be done to
leverage knowledge in the process of creating wealth and improving
economic growth in under resourced areas. Papers on
scientific work, government projects, policies, business practices,
examples and experiences are very critical in providing knowledge,
mechanisms and techniques which are needed in the process of leveraging
knowledge for economic development. Knowledge
Management and Innovation have been identified as key in facilitating
economic growth. These are important topics of the conference as outlined
further down this call for papers
