GWEM-ES'09 - Joint 5th German Workshop on Experience Management and Enterprise Search


Efficient utilization of experience is gaining in importance since expertise, "know how", applied knowledge can be assessed as one of the most important resources and the key issue for successfully competing organizations in almost every sector of economy. In the context of this workshop as well as the workshops previously held in this series, 'experience' is mainly considered as a form of knowledge obtained during the solution of problems. Therefore, similar but not identical issues from approaches developed in Knowledge Management, all aspects of the whole lifecycle of 'experience' are in the focus of this workshop: Analyzing, modeling, storing, retrieving, developing, and reusing experience are major challenges to Experience Management (EM) and hence can be in the center of contributions to this workshop. Based on these lifecycle-oriented issues, aspects of applying EM in "real world" scenarios (e.g. in manufacturing industry, commerce etc.) coming from a variety of scientific communities are as well of great interest.

A secondary focus of the workshop is reusing information and hidden experiences available in various information systems of enterprises. In order to benefit from this, an enterprise has to provide easy access to information on an enterprise-wide level, typically addressed by Enterprise Search (ES) infrastructures. The search domain is rather large and offers only limited options for modeling as well as content annotation. Enterprise Search further deals with an individual set of challenges, such as handling access rights and multiple and distributed information sources with heterogeneous content and structure. The workshop encourages contributions from the well-known field of Information Retrieval systems as well as Experience Management approaches that help to address Enterprise Search challenge and provide for a better information access in enterprises.

Hence, besides the traditionally strong focus of this workshop series on the design, development and integration of intelligent systems, information retrieval and methods for managing experience, subjects relevant in Experience Management and Enterprise Search may be contributed by different communities from computer science (e.g. aspects of collaborative/"Web 2.0" techniques in the development/use/distribution of experiences), mathematics (e.g. analysis and design of algorithms from machine learning, CBR, network analysis), social science (e.g. modeling and analysis of usage and development of experience in networks, acceptance of experience-based derived solutions), and business administration/economics (e.g. assessing the economic value of EM in enterprises).

The overall objective of this workshop is to provide an interdisciplinary forum where practitioners and researchers can exchange ideas, concepts and solutions concerning the design and implementation of Experience Management systems, present practical experiences from applications in any domain, and discuss future research directions.
