GeNeMe stands for „communities in new media“ addressing online communities at the interface or from the point of view of several disciplines such as computer science, multimedia or media technology, economics, education and information science as well as social and communication science.
As a forum for the interdisciplinary dialogue between science and industry, the GeNeMe serves the exchange of experience and knowledge between participants from a wide range of disciplines, organizations and institutions.

24st - 26st October 2018 on the FH Dresden

The conference is managed by a group of scientists from the Faculties of Education and Economics as well as the Media Center of the Technische Universität Dresden, with the kind support of Silicon Saxony e.V. The partner universities are the Hochschule der DGUV (HGU), the HTW Dresden and the FH Dresden as co-organizers on the content and organization of the 21st GeNeMe 2018.

Thematic focus

The digital transformation has reached large parts of society and brings enormous challenges for business, politics and administration. New organizational structures and strategies emerge. Change processes affect the industry as well as the administration. In addition, science confirms new business models, new job profiles, new communication channels. The GeNeMe 2018 examines innovative practices in business, politics and administration and identifies needs for research on methods and tools of the digital economy – especially with regard to the knowledge-based collaboration in online communities (online communities) calls for an interpretive analysis.

Call for Papers

Thematic focus for the 20th GeNeMe is stronger than before in the field of digital, software-based tools for knowledge-based (collaborative) work. Innovation and research will also be considered as fields of activity. Further impulses are coming from the fields of knowledge visualization and knowledge-based architecture. In addition to computational and media technological analyses, we will also pay attention to the practice of (organizational) knowledge integration, whether through information management, learning or education processes.
