Thematic Focus

The currently discussed digital transformation processes (Industry 4.0, IoT) characterize GeNeMe 2017. The focus is on innovation and research, methods and tools for the digital mapping of knowledge-intensive cooperation in increasingly heterogeneous communities (augmented knowledge communities). Further impulses are coming from the fields of knowledge visualization and knowledge-based architecture. In addition to the informal and media-technological analyses, the practice of (organizational) knowledge integration, whether through knowledge management, learning or education processes, is also considered.
