IMCW2016: The "7th International Symposium on Information Management in a
Changing World" will take place in Vienna, Austria from October 10-11, 2016
( <http://imcw2016.bilgiyonetimi.net/> http://imcw2016.bilgiyonetimi.net/).
It is organized by the Department of Information Management of Hacettepe
University in Ankara, Turkey, and the Austrian Computer Society (OCG) in
Vienna.  IMCW2016 will be co-located with the 12th International Conference
on Knowledge Management (ICKM2016) ( <http://ickm2016.ocg.at/>

We live in an emerging era of what is called "Industry 4.0", which combines
cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing.
Smart products and smart objects producing data and information require
information systems embedded in them as well as in the infrastructure to
store, compute, process and transmit information to improve decision making
and process automation. Trusted information environments are needed to
provide safe and secure objects, data and services so that smart objects
carrying information can be identified, localized and addressed.  6C's
(connection, cloud, cyber, content/context, community and customization)
pertaining to big data and analytics have implications for information
management in the Industry 4.0 environment.  Therefore, information
management is of paramount importance in the age of Industry 4.0.  


The main theme of the Symposium is "Information Management in Industry 4.0".
IMCW2016 aims to bring together information professionals, digital
archivists, data scientists, computer engineers and business people to
discuss how it is that effective information management practices dealing
with large amounts of data in the Industry 4.0 Era can be implemented.  As
organizers, we thought this is an opportune time for IMCW2016 to review the
challenges of Industry 4.0 for data centers, information organizations,
digital libraries and archives in terms of networking smart resources (e.g.,
products, things and objects), people and databases to provide value-added



Professor Ahmed Bounfour, President of the New Club of Paris and the
European Chair on Intellectual Capital Management and Head of Innovation
Networks at the University Paris-Sud (Paris, France), will be the keynote
speaker at IMCW2016.  Professor Bounfour's keynote speech will be entitled
"Digital Transformation and Organizing: From Lean Production to
