I recently attended the 14th International Conference on Knowledge Management (ICKM) and the 81st ASIS&T annual meeting held in Vancouver, B.C. November 9-14, 2018. Both conferences were an enormous gathering with around 600 attendees from 30 different countries around the world.

ICKM Global and next event host country leaders

This year’s theme—of ICKM was “Profession and Discipline of Action”—highlights the efforts to push toward impactful action and change. ICKM provides academics, researchers, developers, practitioners, Information Professionals, and users from all over the world a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas concerning theoretical and practical aspects of information and Knowledge Management. The topics and presenters have added their own unique insights to this theme, and the ideas and collaborations that came out of the conference. I especially liked the plenary sessions throughout. These provided me with a chance to meet around critical issues in leadership and issues in the knowledge management field. I also participated in the ICKM council meeting after the closing remarks.

The theme—of the ASIS&T annual meeting was “Building and sustaining an ethical future with emerging technology” The theme of the ASIS&T 2018 Annual Meeting is focused on the ethical implications of the rapid and dynamic transformation of technology and its use in the collection and dissemination of information.
