Knowledge Management Essentials: Reflections on the Discipline and Outlook to the Future
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Heisig
Professor for Information and Knowledge Management, University of Applied Science Potsdam, Germany

Prof. Peter Heisig
Reflecting on the history and development of the Knowledge Management discipline
over the last three decades from an academic and applied research perspective, this
keynote will outline the KM Essentials as core of our discipline as well as open questions
to be addressed in the future. The keynote will discuss the importance of a shared
understanding of the core ‘ingredients’ of the discipline taking into account different
perspectives and different discourses. The keynote will address the current deficits within
the KM discipline from a personal perspective and suggest future research avenues which
needs to be address. Taking into account the challenges we as individuals, within
organizations and within societies are facing today, some urgent research topics will be
outlined to trigger reflection and discussion among a broader community of KM
academics and KM practitioners.

Keynote Speech III of KMO/LTEC 2023 (9:00-10:00, July 27, 2023)
KM 4.0: The impact of Industry 4.0 on KM practices and KM systems
Prof. Eric Tsui
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong

Prof. Eric Tsui
The onset of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (I4.0) is not only just transforming the manufacturing and supply chain industries but also in a broader perspective impacting businesses on a wide range of fronts. Industry 4.0 is more than a collection of technologoes;  it also covers models that create new values in business applications. In the Industry 4.0 era, especially with the increased availability of large volumes of real time data, the pervasiveness of cloud computing and increasingly connected digital knowledge networks, new ways to extend KM efforts are now possible, Among others, this talk will cover the expansion of KM efforts to external networks, new way to groom and enhance the judgement of subject matter experts, and the cloud as an e-canvas for orchestrating and delivery of knowledge services. Opportunities and challenges will also be presented.

Tutorial I of KMO/LTEC 2023 (9:00-12:00, July 24, 2023)
Successful practices on distant knowledge assessment: Approaches, Tools, and Future Trends
Luka Pavlič, Tina Beranič, Marjan Heričko 
University of Maribor, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Slovenia

Prof. Luka Pavlič
Higher education in traditional universities relies on face-to-face lecturing, experimenting, teaching and, eventually, defending the results during written or oral exams, and sometimes also moderated presentations. The COVID-19 pandemic moved several activities online overnight, among them teaching, studying, and knowledge assessment. This led to anxiety and doubts among teachers and students, while revealing a lack of confidence, experience, and general guidelines. Changing our teaching in these directions were something what we wanted to refuse.  While the academic community favoured primarily proctoring-based approaches (audio and video surveillance, desktop sharing etc.) during examinations, we believed that knowledge assessments could also be organized well by appropriately designed, validated, implemented, and communicated assessment sessions.  Quite a few knowledge assessments were implemented online during that period. They provided an extensive collection of recurring practices. Within the research we collected and categorized them into an assessment pattern catalogue for distant education. We also validated and rated the catalogue using empirical research with a help of practitioners.  During the proposed tutorial, we will present the Assessment pattern catalogue in detail. A methodology on how to use it, will also be presented and demonstrated. The participants will have opportunity to influence on the catalogue content and will practically try its usage. The hands-on session will be used to show the benefits and possible drawbacks of the current patterns in catalogue.  Since our lives are getting back to normal and the learning process is moving back to the classroom, the tutorial will demonstrate that most patterns within the catalogue, although originated from distant education, could also be applied in a classroom knowledge assessment. 

Tutorial II of KMO/LTEC 2023 (13:30-16:30, July 24, 2023)
Ultimate knowledge management and transfer with OKMindmap: Achieving communicative, collaborative, creative, and critical knowledge processing and managing
Won Ho, Professor of Kongju National University, Korea

Prof. Won Ho
Creation, management, and maintenance of knowledge have become critical issues.
Information can be represented in relation to other information. The well-defined
relationship is a core property of knowledge representation. So, the mindmap can be a
valuable tool for knowledge representation. With the advent of the 4th industrial
revolution, the 4Cs (collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity)
became core competencies for learning and the workplace. The easily accessible tool is
necessary for collaborative creation, converting, transferring, and recording knowledge.
OKMindmap is the right tool for that purpose, which empowers the conventional
mindmap with trendy technological capabilities. People can easily collaborate to produce
a mindmap on a web browser with text, links, images, video, and iframe. Those maps can
be converted to different knowledge representation entities. One of them is PPT. People
can do web-presentation in PPT-like or Prezi-like form. It is also integrated with Moodle
and Node-Red. Moodle is a powerful LMS. Moodle activities can be imported as a node
of a map. Node-RED enables a node in the map with a remote switch for IoT power or
sensor-valued reading. Anyone learning, teaching, researching, and doing business can
use this powerful tool.
