Enterprise 2.0 Mashups: Expanding Customer Value Networks: Sept 28, 2007, UCSF Mission Bay, Mission Bay Community Center, San Francisco, California USA

Enterprise Mashups are application hybrids combining content and functions from more than one existing source to create powerful Web applications, integrated Web experiences and expanded customer value networks. Mashups are created by combining internal sources such as enterprise data with external Web resources such as Google Maps. Mashups are created when different application program interfaces (API) are combined or 'mashed' to create an entirely new application. Mashups are the fastest growing enterprise ecosystem on the Web by far. Mashups are social, role-based, network-centric, complex, distributed and essential to all knowledge-based networks, models and businesses. They are a critical method to enhance customer experience, to drive productivity growth (innovation) and achieve fundamental advancements in knowledge economy competitiveness. Customers, employees, suppliers and other stakeholders gain enormous benefits using enterprise mashups to create new applications and expanding customer value networks.

EKC 2007 will be the first in a series of biennial conferences by the University of Hertfordshire concerned with the issues and understanding of knowledge in research and practice in the creative disciplines. The experiential knowledge conferences will serve to address specific themes, to bring together researchers and practitioners from different disciplines to engender challenging multi-vocal debates around these themes, and to facilitate exchange and cross-fertilisation between the creative disciplines and other practice-led disciplines such as education, health, and knowledge management."

 Knowledge Management International Conference & Exhibition (KMICE), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: June 6 - 8,2005.
"Knowledge as an intellectual capital has become an important asset to any nation nowadays.

 International Ph.D. Seminar on Organizational Learning, Networks and Communities: Innovations in the Emerging Strategic Entrepreneurship Field , Vrije Universiteit Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Public Administration & Organization Science: June 13 - 17, 2005. Contact: Wouter Stam, E-mail: phdseminar@fsw.vu.nl. (Application deadline April 15, 2005)
"Discovering and exploiting opportunities is a challenge for organizations. It requires new knowledge to be combined with existing competencies. Three related perspectives will be discussed to examine how to create a favourable context for individuals/employees to take initiatives to pursue opportunities. The organizational learning perspective gives insights into the enabling factors for knowledge creation. New knowledge has to be discovered and recombined in order to develop innovative solutions. The network perspective is of interest because it focuses on the role of ‘who you know’ in the search for new knowledge. The position of the actor in the network as well as the type of ties, weak or strong, have an impact on his access to new information. Networks not only give access to new information, they provide firms (in particular innovative start-ups) access to communities. Recent research into the industrial and organizational community perspective stresses that the emergence of new industries requires numerous roles from the diverse set of entrepreneurs and organizations, both public and private. Interactions between the various players in a community and information sharing between them, plays an important role in organizational learning processes. In addition, participation in these communities may provide legitimacy to innovative initiatives."

The Second International Conference on Practical Aspects of Knowledge Management (PAKM98) : 29-30 October, 1998 Basel, Switzerland
"Knowledge Management is primarily an issue of enterprise organization and enterprise management but there are many central and important issues which can be supported or even enabled by state-of-the-art information systems. Consequently, approaches to Knowledge Management need to be rooted in business and organization science as well as in computer science. However, conferences and workshops on Knowledge Management typically either cover approaches from the first or the second area only. Although such events are certainly worthwhile we feel that bringing together people from both areas and giving them a forum for exchanging ideas will lead to Knowledge Management solutions that are much more useful and effective.
The PAKM Conference is dedicated to that quite challenging aim. It will bring together people from both areas, namely:
--people who have an organizational perspective on Knowledge Management, e.g. have practical experience in introducing Knowledge Management in organisations, or are concerned with more theoretical approaches to managing the resource "knowledge"
--people with an information technology point of view on Knowledge Management who, e.g., have developed tools for Knowledge Management, or are investigating on a more theoretical level technological frameworks for Knowledge Management "
Capitalizing on Knowledge (Knowledge Inc.'s Annual Strategic Forum): Oct 25-28, 1998, Chantilly, VA (U.S.A.)

We have George Gilder, author of Microcosm and Telecosm, and Tom Davenport, our own editor-at-large and co-author of Working Knowledge, delivering keynotes exploring some of the critical opportunities and challenges that knowledge-intensive companies now face."
Knowledge, Knowing and Organizations. An INFORMS Sub-Conference sponsored by INFORMS/College on Organization Science: Oct 24-28, 1998, Seattle, WA (USA)
""Knowledge" has become a favorite topic among organization scientists. The knowledge-based view of organizations has highlighted the importance of intellectual capital in creating economic value. It has led to renewed and revised appreciation of human capital. It has refocused our frameworks for examining organizational competencies. On the other hand, there is some danger that the pace of acceptance of the concept has led us to proliferate knowledge-related concepts, claims and correlates when we could more constructively build upon them.
The College on Organization Sciences will devote this Fall’s INFORMS Subconference to isolating the distinctive and enduring value of Knowledge as a major construct in organization theory. This meeting will build on topics raised at this January’s Organization Science Winter Conference and will precede a special issue of Organization Science devoted to "Knowledge, Knowing and Organizations" (guest editors: John Seely Brown, Bruce Kogut, Arie Lewin, and Larry Prusak, call to be issued following the Fall conference, papers will be due by 30 April 1999)."
Learning Communities: Building Enduring Capability : Sept 16-18, 1998, San Francisco, CA (USA)

Over 50 parallel sessions—in tracks such as "Developing People," "Leadership," "Dialogue," "Large-Scale Change," and "Technologies for Supporting Learning Communities"—will offer a wide range of case studies, practical applications, and tools and techniques, so that you can take what you learn and put it to work in your own organizational settings. In a very real and immediate sense, we will come together in San Francisco as a living laboratory in which to experiment, discover, and carry forward our best understanding of what it means to build enduring capability in our learning communities."

Collaboration '98: Customer Intimacy Through On-Line Community : May 7-8, 1998, New York City, NY (USA)
"Collaboration ‘98 is unlike any other conference you have ever attended! Although there are many conferences today on Knowledge Management, Electronic Collaboration, Groupware and On-line communities, none of these other conferences actually uses the technologies they talk about, or models the behaviors needed to be successful. That is where Collaboration ‘98 is different -- it is a "hands-on" event. We believe that the best way to learn is by doing. To this end, Collaboration ‘98 is a process rather than an event, and you are invited to become a member of a community rather than simply an attendee to one-time conference event.
