Innovation in Knowledge organisation was conference put on by Straits Knowledge (a Singapore-based knowledge management consultancy), PebbleRoad (a Singapore-based user experience design consultancy) and Synaptica (a global taxonomy software company).
The format of the conference was high energy – although 26 presentations were given, most of these were short form and much of the conference was given over to discussion and interaction. This was not a conference to sit back and fall asleep in.
In this article, we provide an overview of the material presented and the discussions we had with participants. We will begin with plenary presentations and the case studies. We will continue with an overview of discussions within the clinics. We will end with some broader reflections on the conference topics and what they mean for information professionals in Australia.
