The Southern California Knowledge Managment Forum community includes academic researchers, industrial participants, and interested parties in the collective study of KM in various domains.

About the Forum

Welcome to the Southern California Knowledge Management Forum webpage for the meeting of June 19, 2008 held on the campus of the University of California, Irvine.

This meeting was focused on a variety of topics including: the analogy between Knowledge Management and Software Engineering; technological support for brainstorming; the studying of communities and Knowledge Management; supporting collaboration; Social Networking; Communications Media; Virtual Worlds and Simulations; and Education.

The forum delivered a unique, highly interactive and professionally challenging environment that allowed attendees to discuss, share, and learn different perspectives and ideas on Knowledge Management (KM). Participants from various organizations were able to learn of the KM efforts that neighboring firms are undertaking and engaged in networking opportunities. This forum was intended for individuals who are involved with KM related work — from industry, academia, or government. The intent of the forum is to build a community of practice on the topic of KM.
