Track on Knowledge Management and Society
Increasing access to big data and open data has become a catalyst for transformations and innovations of the knowledge society. Big data and open data can be used for improving organizational performance and social good, thus promoting the competitiveness and societal well-being. There is an urgent need for new models of integrating knowledge management with big data management in knowledge society either at a local, national or global level. The White House’s “Data to Knowledge to Action” initiative in 2013 aimed to build big data partnerships with academia, industries, and public sectors, which drove one of the NSF priority goals toward increasing the nation’s data science capacity by investment in human capital and infrastructure development. Likewise, National Institutes of Health (NIH) Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative (2012) envisioned a future where big data can be moved toward knowledge destination. Those new models and cases emphasize on leveraging big data and/or open data to enhance competitive advantages of the knowledge society and re-positioning the future development of knowledge society in the burgeoning knowledge-based global economy.

The topics in Track on Knowledge Management and Society will focus on, but are not limited to, the following areas:

Big Data Sustainability in Knowledge Society or Knowledge Economy
