Oekonomie der Wissensproduktion und -organisation
Economics of Knowledge Production and Organization
Joint Conference of the Polish and German Chapters of the International
Society for Knowledge Organization (ISKO) in collaboration with the Chair
for Philosophy of Technology and the Chair for General Science of Technology
at Brandenburg Technical University (BTU) Cottbus, Cottbus (south-east of
Berlin), Germany, September 29 October 2, 2011
ISKO Chapters regularly organize a conference concerning a major issue of
knowledge organization every second year. Yet, the Polish und German
Chapters have decided to organize a joint conference in 2011 on the
"Economics of Knowledge Production and Organization" in the city of Cottbus,
Germany. The background idea is that the economic conditions and constraints
of knowledge organization cannot be discussed merely in a national context
but must be considered in a way that transgresses state borders. Libraries,
archives, and other institutions, no matter in which country they are
located, dealing with knowledge organization face quite the same challenges.
These challenges might be better mastered by international cooperation.
Simultaneously, this joint conference aims to strengthen the sense for how
cultural particularities influence knowledge organization.
In addition to the main issue of economic conditions and constraints
knowledge organization must cope with in daily routines, common issues of
knowledge organization like interoperability, foundations of knowledge
organization, applications, quality management, current issues in research
on knowledge organization, and the like shall be dealt with. Again, a
particular emphasis might be laid on the question whether cultural
particularities influence processes of knowledge production and knowledge
organization. Therefore, submissions particularly dealing with such
culturally defined aspects would be appreciated.
-- Possible Contributions
There will be two distinct call for papers: The first and general CfP will
ask for submissions dealing with the economic conditions and constraints of
knowledge production and knowledge organization; submissions concerning
country specific aspects or contributions which aim to compare (economic)
conditions in different countries are particularly would be appreciated.
Furthermore, submissions about culturally specific peculiarities of
knowledge organization are welcome. Contributions might be abstracts of
paper presentations as well as poster presentations.
Simultaneously the organizers ask for proposals for tutorials, additional
sections, and workshops. Tutorials and workshops shall be self-organized.
Proposals for sections must include the particular issue the sections shall
deal with. A second call for papers will include the final conference
program and the request for contributions for the aforementioned additional
For review process all contributions (sections, workshops, tutorials,
abstracts and poster) shall be submitted either in English or German;
conference language will be English and German.
