11th International Conference on Knowledge Management, Osaka Japan, Oct 2015

Since the first ICKM was held in Singapore in 2004, subsequent conferences have been held in Charlotte, North Carolina, U.S.A. (2005); Greenwich, London, U.K. (2006); Vienna, Austria (2007); Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A. (2008); Hong Kong (2009); Pittsburgh, U.S.A (2010); Johannesburg, South Africa (2012); Montreal, Canada (2013); and Antalya, Turkey (2014). ICKM is considered to be a flagship conference in the research area of knowledge management. International Conference on Knowledge Management (ICKM) provides researchers and practitioners from all over the world a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas concerning theoretical and practical aspects of Knowledge Management.

My paper titled ” Use and Reluctance: A Study of Faculty Reactions To The Use Of eLearning Systems At Kuwait University” aimed to identify factors that influence the adoption of eLearning technologies at Kuwait University. The study  examined the research problem from four major dimensions: educational, technical, course-related, and administrative. A qualitative exploratory approach had been undertaken to address the research question. In total, 76 semi-structured interviews were conducted in both science and art colleges ate Kuwait University. The research identified four main dimensions to reflect the current reluctance reason faculty members at Kuwait University are facing.

The conference covered so many topics including knowledge economy, knowledge management tools and techniques, competitive intelligence, collaboration, knowledge creation and sharing, knowledge management strategies and implementation, and knowledge management education. 

ICKM 2016 will be in Vienna http://ickm2016.ocg.at/
