9th Australian Conference for Knowledge Management and Intelligent 
Decision Support Melbourne, December 11 – 12th
Call for Papers
Conference Theme: Integrating “doing” and “thinking”: knowledge 
management as reflective practice
Post-industrial economy is based on the availability of information, and 
the means to exploit this information, to create wealth. The emphasis in 
post-industrial production is on the ability to use abstract knowledge 
in a creative and innovative way by being able to quickly and critically
evaluate existing practices, to gain insight from those practices and to 
make new discoveries.
Knowledge management (KM) is a concept that articulates many aspects 
that characterise postindustrial production in its concern with an 
organisation’s ability to create and exploit knowledge. However, 
mainstream KM adopts a top-down approach to express organisational 
imperatives and assumes a process view of KM that emphasises knowledge 
acquisition, storage, dissemination and application.
The conference theme highlights an alternative, bottom up approach to KM 
based on understanding work practices that include both the productive; 
the “doing”; and the cognitive and conceptual; the “thinking”; aspects 
of work tasks. The integration of these aspects forms the basis of 
reflective practice that characterises knowledge work. The conference 
seeks submissions that explore the role of knowledge management in 
reflective practice.
Publication: Accepted papers, keynotes and case studies will be 
published by Australian Scholarly Press as a monograph after the conference.
