Event/Product information

KIM2013 is the OR Society's inaugural Knowledge and Information Management conference.


The theme of Sustainable Quality is relevant to organisations and individuals working in any sector of the economy. Knowledge management has become a key process in understanding organisations and their use of resources and, ultimately, quality is a major differentiating factor when considering goods and services.  Sustaining quality requires taking a strategic view that may present short to medium term challenges and knowledge management should be able to help address such challenges. For large organisations, knowledge management may be seen as an intra-organisation activity, but sustaining quality for small to medium enterprises may require inter-organisational cooperation. The different quality and knowledge management issues faced by different sectors and differently sized organisations, and how these are addressed in practice and in theory, will help to make this a very interesting conference.


We are extremely fortunate in having three highly knowledgeable and exciting plenary speakers, who will present very different and challenging thoughts:

  • Dr. Jay Liebowitz, Orkand Endowed Chair in Management and Technology, The Graduate School, University of Maryland University College.
  • Professor John Edwards, Executive Dean, Aston Business School and Editor of Knowledge Management Research and Practice (KMRP).
  • Trevor Howes, Director, BRM Fusion Ltd.


Papers that relate to the theme and to knowledge and information management will be welcome.  Areas of particular interest include (but are not restricted to) the management of:

  • services
  • education
  • health
  • manufacturing.


Papers will be reviewed and accepted papers will be published electronically in conference proceedings (subject to conference booking and payment).


Submissions will be accepted for a special issue of KMRP and will be published electronically with DOI in time for the REF, subject to papers being completed (refereed, revised and accepted) by early July 2013. 


The conference will incorporate the Tenth Birthday Party of KMRP and there will be a drinks reception, sponsored by Palgrave Macmillan and a gala dinner.


A bar quiz will be offered to delegates choosing to arrive on Monday 3 June.

We hope you will join us at the very Heart of England for a stimulating and highly enjoyable event.


The Marriott Forest of Arden Hotel & Country Club has recently undergone a stunning £5 million refurbishment. The KIM2013 conference hotel is set in the heart of the English midlands in the rural Warwickshire countryside yet just four miles from the NEC complex, Birmingham Airport and the international train station.
