KMDSS: Knowledge Management & Decision Support Systems

Background and Goals

Knowledge management focuses on capturing knowledge created in an organization and making it available to those who need it to make decisions.

Knowledge Management System (KMS) refers to an information and communication technology system for managing knowledge in organizations for supporting creation, capture, storage and dissemination of information. A KMS aims to enable employees to have ready access to the organization’s documented base of facts, sources of information, and solutions. KMS can be used for a wide range of cooperative, collaborative and hierarchy communities, virtual organizations, societies and other virtual networks, to manage content, activities, interactions and workflows. With the support of KMS, users can extract and generate new knowledge, enhance, leverage and transfer knowledge in new outcomes providing new services using new formats and interfaces and different communication channels.

Decision-making is the process of identifying and choosing alternatives based on the values and preferences of the decision-maker. A decision support system (DSS) is a computer-based information system that supports business or organizational decision-making activities. DSSs serve the management, operations, and planning levels of an organization and help people make decisions about problems that may be rapidly changing and not easily specified in advance.

This special session aims in promoting and encouraging research efforts in the areas of knowledge management & decision support systems, covering a number of topics and technological areas and with an emphasis on exploiting the synergies between the two types of information systems.
