The association aims to become a reference point for all people who, with various roles, work professionally in the field of KM and are interested to contribute to its development as a scientific discipline. In 2013 Remko was the organizing chair for the 21th European Conference in Information Systems (ECIS 2013) that took place from June 5-8 in Utrecht.
