This year's leading theme “Digitalisation and Knowledge Work” questions the relevance of knowledge management in the digital age. In a working environment that is shaped by digital transformation the percentage of knowledge work has increased continuously. At the same time enhanced information and communication technologies have initiated changes with new developments such as industry 4.0, big data, machine learning, etc., which aftermath extend far into the personal organisation of work.

Digitalisation and Knowledge Work – What the Digital Workplace and Knowledge Management can learn from each other

The leading theme thereby focuses on topics which concern individual knowledge workers, whether as private individuals, solopreneurs or as employees in companies and organisations such as personal information and knowledge management. How can insights from knowledge management and information sciences be utilized for the digital workplace? What can professionals learn from each other coming from such different approaches as information and knowledge management, digital workplace or learning & development.

Target group and format: Entrepreneurs and employees, knowledge managers, organisation & human resources development, corporate learning professionals, digital workplace & collaboration, experts and beginners - all can actively participate due to the barcamp format.
