The 7th International Conference on
Innovation and Knowledge Management in Asia Pacific
(IKMAP 2014)

9-10 October 2014 - Bangkok, Thailand

Competitive advantage through Knowledge and Innovation

Since the early 1990's, the importance of Knowledge Management (KM) and Innovation Management (IM) to create an organization's competitive advantage has been widely recognized worldwide in the government, public and private sectors. KM and IM are interdisciplinary and complex areas of study by integrating technology centered and human centered approaches from the perspective of system science. The need for learning and innovation capability is critical for organizations, thus Knowledge Management and Intellectual Capital have an important role to play as a catalyst for the proper achievement of both of them. This international KM conference, started in 2004 (KMAP), has now been renamed as "International Conference on Innovation and Knowledge Management in Asia Pacific" to include the important element of "innovation management". This year's conference is co-organized by the Institute for Knowledge and Innovation Southeast Asia (IKI-SEA) at Bangkok University (Thailand) and the Knowledge Management and Innovation Research Center (KMIRC) of The Hong-Kong Polytechnic University (Hong-Kong), and will be held in Bangkok, the capital and the most populous city of Thailand.

The conference aims to

  • Provide a cross-cultural platform for the Knowledge Management practitioners and academics in Asia to network with their counterparts in the West and vice versa
  • Discuss the topics of mutual interests and navigate together the next generation of Knowledge and Innovation Management
  • Enhance international networking and collaborations
