Research / Conferences and Seminars

International Workshop on Knowledge Management

International workshop on Knowledge Management (IWKM) is a scientific event organized by Vysoká škola manažmentu annually, usually in autumn, in Bratislava, Slovakia. It is a discussion forum welcoming both experts and novices in Knowledge Management. The workshop`s format offers not only the presentations of original research outcomes, but also gives much more room for opinion exchanges than many regular conferences do.

History of IWKM started in 2006. During the first two years, it was a Slovak national event.  IWKM has been an international event since the year 2008 and welcomed regular participants. The knowledge management community started to be larger and more active, thanks to IWKM.

Due to a limited number of its participants, it did not require division into parallel sections. All the participants got acquainted with each other during the two-day series of presentations and learned about a variety of Knowledge Management applications in business, industry and education.
