6th Workshop on Information Logistics and Knowledge Supply

in conjunction with 12th International Conference on Business Informatics Research, BIR 2013

The field of information logistics and knowledge supply investigates methods, technologies and applications supporting demand-oriented and efficient information and knowledge provision in enterprises. In particular in knowledge-intensive industry and service sectors, information is a major factor in production processes, and knowledge reflects an important asset of the enterprise. Similarly, public organizations and governmental bodies are dependent on accurate and timely information supply for efficient and high quality processes and services. Intelligent information supply has become an important issue that is characterized by just-in-time, demand-oriented and context-sensitive information.

Experience shows that successful solutions for intelligent information supply involve several ingredients: a sound business case with clearly defined benefits and returns for the (networked) organization, a clear under­standing of the user’s demand including the organizational context, and the right use of "enabling technologies” like semantic technologies, knowledge management or ubiquitous computing.

This workshop aims to bring together people who have strong interest in enterprise information systems, information logistics and knowledge supply. We invite researchers and practitioners from both industry and academia to submit original results of their completed or ongoing projects. We encourage broad understanding of possible approaches and solutions for information logistics and knowledge supply. Specific focus will be on practices and experiences of information logistics and knowledge supply, i.e. we encourage submission of case study and experiences papers, and of contributions bringing together business cases and enabling technologies.
