SIG-KM International Research Symposium 2021

The primary goal of the KM symposium is to encourage and empower participants who are new in the knowledge management. Additionally, to showcase the works of scholars and practitioners researching the knowledge management field. Through this symposium students and early career researchers can network and present their research to others in the field. This would help the participants to receive feedback on their work before submitting their research to peer-reviewed publications. Additionally, participants can find mentors and research collaborators beyond their immediate professors. These events open doors to new work opportunities and new connections. As this symposium seeks students, early career researchers and professionals who are on tight budgets, we have decided to make this KM-Symposium free to all participants, allowing them to present their research without worrying about how they will pay symposium registration fees.

When: Virtual Symposium, September 29, 2021
