International Workshop on Knowledge Management

International workshop on Knowledge Management (IWKM) is a scientific event organized by Vysoká škola manažmentu annually in the middle of October in Bratislava, Slovakia. It is a discussion forum inviting both experts and novices in Knowledge Management. Its format offers not only the presentation of original research outcomes but gives much larger room for opinion exchange than many regular conferences do.

The history of IWKM started in 2006. During the first two years it was a Slovak national event. Since 2008, it is an international activity with a vital community of its regular participants. Due to a limited number of its participants it does not require divisions into parallel sections. Due to that, everyone gets acquainted with all participants during its two-day series of presentations and learns about a variety of Knowledge Management applications in business, industry and education.

School of Management (VŠM) in Trenčín, Slovakia, organizes the annual International Workshop on Knowledge Management (12th IWKM). In this year, the key topic will be Knowledge Management as a Framework for Industry 4.0.
