Knowledge Management South Africa (KMSA) presents our annual convention
on the future of Knowledge Management, guided by the theme of:
2020 & Beyond: Driving Engagement and
Managing Knowledge for Growth 

Call for Papers
Deadline: 20 March 2020

KMSA Society will be hosting its 4th Annual Convention from 11- 13 August 2020
at Johannesburg Country Club, Woodmead.
KMSA invites all parties who may be
interested in presenting paper(s) a case study at the convention to submit a paper
abstract of no more than 250 words to the KMSA Secretariat.

KMSA plays a significant role in equipping its members with insights. The convention
aims to share information and knowledge between role-players in the knowledge
management environment & to equip members to maximise their roles. With the
matters arising from the fourth industrial revolution (4IR), digital transformation,
climate change, cyber security etc. it is critical that knowledge management
practitioners have a conversation on the future and the role that knowledge will play in
driving growth.

Every year more and more KMSA members attend the KMSA Convention on the
basis that it is the one of the few forums in Africa that focuses on a holistic approach
thereby ensuring that members increase their knowledge of the profession plus have
current issues explored in a meaningful way to be of benefit to attendees. KMSA would cordially invites prospective speakers to submit an abstract of their paper(s) which will relate to the conference theme, sub- themes, subject matter and audience.
