There are a few interesting conferences coming up this month that are related to knowledge management. Looking at the programs, and on past experience, the conferences have much to offer if you can find the time to attend.
Oz/IA 2010 for information architects and similar knowledge professionals is being held in Sydney on the 8th and 9th October. The program looks terrific and if I wasn’t spending this Friday and the weekend down the coast, I would certainly have been going to Oz/IA.
The ACT-KM Conference is being held on the 18th and 19th October at the Australian National University in Canberra. The full program is now available. I have been to several of the ACT-KM conferences in the past and can thoroughly recommend them.
And if you’re lucky enough, there is the National Digital Forum being held in beautiful Wellington, New Zealand, on the 18th and 19th of the month. The program is available from here. Throughout the conference the following key issues will be discussed:
- connecting our collections
- linking up with each other
- using data
- working with communities (e.g. iwi, family historians, etc)
- working with content creators and consumers
All in all, a pretty good selection of events.
