The Two Pillars

Robert Pergl
Czech Technical University in Prague
Czech Republic
 

Brief Bio
Dr. Robert Pergl is an Assistant Professor at Department of Software Engineering, Faculty of Information Technologies of Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic, where he founded "Centre for Conceptual Modelling and Implementation", a group focusing on research, development and applications of methods and tools for ontological engineering, enterprise engineering, software engineering and data stewardship. Apart from his publishing work, Dr. Pergl is also a General Chair of EOMAS Workshop, a representative in the CIAO! Enterprise Engineering Network and National Node Committee member of ELIXIR Czech Republic.


Abstract
In his keynote, Dr. Pergl is going to discuss two pillars of intellectual human endeavour: naming and hierarchies. He digs into the essence of these corner-stones of conceptualisation and explores their presence, significance and forms in various disciplines. Challenges of naming and hierarchies in engineering disciplines are discussed and "lessons learned" are formulated.



 

 

Digitalization: A Meeting Point of Knowledge Management and Enterprise Engineering

Eduard Babkin
National Research University “Higher School of Economics”
Russian Federation
 

Brief Bio
Eduard Babkin is a tenured professor in the department of Information Systems and Technologies of National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE Nizhny Novgorod, Russia), where he takes a position of the head in the research laboratory of theory and practice of decision support systems (TAPRADESS). Also Eduard Babkin has been working in IT industry, he has more than twenty years of practical experience in architecting, software design and project management of complex distributed information systems. In 1993 Eduard Babkin obtained BS degree in Informatics and started the academic carrier as a lecturer. In 2007 Eduard Babkin obtained his PhD degree in Computer Science in National Institute of Applied Sciences (Rouen, France). Since that time he has been carried out scientific research in enterprise engineering, multi-agent systems, knowledge management as a principal investigator or a team lead. Currently Eduard Babkin is mostly interested in multidisciplinary studies where advances of conceptual modeling, distributed algorithms and multi-agent systems were fused with corresponding domains of sociology and economics.


Abstract
Digital transformation of organizations became a significant research and engineering challenge worldwide. In many cases digitalization requires extraction of tacit individual, interpersonal or organizational knowledge to explicit machine-readable forms and their conscious application during enterprise reengineering. Successful accomplishment of these tasks vitally relies on a rigorous scientific theory and formal methods. This lecture demonstrates how the technique of evolvable domain-specific languages solves several problems of knowledge management in organizations, the enterprise ontology approach facilitates comprehensive understanding of socio-technical systems, and how fusion of these approaches may provide a reliable tool for digitalization. Illustration of results obtained in several research projects supports the main statements of the lecture.



 

 

Keynote Lecture

Karl-Erik Sveiby
Hanken School of Economics
Finland
 

Brief Bio
Karl-Erik is often described as one of the”founding fathers” of knowledge management due to his seminal works during the early ”Nordic KM movement” in the 1980’s, such as Managing Know-How (w. Tom Lloyd) Bloomsbury 1987; The Invisible Balance Sheet (w. the Konradgroup) Affärsvärlden 1990, and; the world’s first book titled Knowledge Management, (Sw. Kunskapsledning) Affärsvärlden 1990. He was appointed Professor in Knowledge Management at Hanken in 2001 and Emeritus in 2013. Previous appointments include honorary professorships at Queensland University of Technology, Griffith university, Macquarie Graduate School of Management in Australia and Hongkong Polytechnic University. He is on the editorial board of Journal of Intellectual Capital and has been on Management Decision, among others. He has published a.o. in journals such as Journal of Knowledge Management, Leadership, Sustainable Development and written 13 books among them the bestseller The New Organizational Wealth Berret-Koehler 1997 and the co-edited Challenging the Innovation Paradigm Routledge 2012. Most of his books and articles can be downloaded free from www.sveiby.com. Unlike most academics, he has been a manager, among others a co-owned publishing house, which became Sweden´s largest in financial and trade press. He has consulted worldwide and developed a wide range of tools that help managers and consultants implementing IC and KM concepts in practice, among them the Intangible Assets Monitor and Tango (w. Klas Mellander), the business simulation that helps managers experience how to create value from knowledge. His mission is to help organisations become better for people.
