  • Symposium Introduction
    • The Fifth International Symposium on Information and Knowledge Management (ISIKM2022), will be held onsite (Guangzhou, China / Kumamoto, Japan) and online, on March 25-26, 2022. ISIKM2022 is organized by ICIC International, Guangzhou College of Technology and Business, Tokai University, Hebei University of Engineering and Dalian University; supported by The University of Adelaide, Soongsil University, Pusan National University, Pukyong National University, and Dalian Simi T&D Inc.
    • The aims of the symposium are to enhance international academic exchanges of the latest research in the field of information and knowledge management, and to provide a chance for communications among researchers.
  • Submissions & Publications
    • ISIKM2022 accepts Full Paper and Extended Abstract Submissions. Full Paper should be written with title, authors’ names, affiliations, email addresses, an up to 150-words abstract, introduction, methods, conclusion and references within 8 single-spaced pages (A4 paper, 12pt font size). Extended abstract should include a brief introduction of the work, research question, methodology and some preliminary results within 2 pages (A4 paper, 12pt font size).
    • All submissions will be included in ISIKM2022 Program and Proceedings and one author will be invited to give an oral presentation at the symposium. Some accepted submission with high quality presented at ISIKM2022 will be selected and recommended for possible publication in some Scopus/Ei/ESCI indexed journals (subject to meeting Scopus/Ei/ESCI indexing standard), after extension, significant modifications and re-review.
    • The submission implies that the paper is original, has not been published or submitted under review or is not copyright-protected elsewhere, and will be presented at the symposium by an author if accepted. All submissions are subject to blind peer view based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality, and clarity.

    • Abstract: For decades, the freight volume transported around the world has increased due to the expansion of the global economy, and in the process of recovering from the recent global pandemic, there is a logistics crisis of volume explosion. In this economic environment, the importance of ports responsible for the global supply chain gradually increases. To solve this problem, many countries are developing smart ports. Smart ports are newly applied concepts to increase port productivity and make ports safer by using smart technologies such as IoT, big data, artificial intelligence, and digital twins. Smart ports technology has two perspectives: automation and intelligence, and in the case of intelligence, the use of data is recognized as an essential factor. In other words, a large amount of real-time data representing the location and condition of the equipment is collected using IoT technology. Through this, the operation of the port can be optimized. This presentation introduces how the intelligence of smart ports is being implemented, with the case of Busan port, Korea’s representative port. In particular, various approaches to streamline port operations using artificial intelligence are introduced with cases from the perspective of Descriptive, Diagnostic, Predictive, and Prescriptive analytics. New services to optimize the entire global supply chain in connection with the sea and inland logistics are also explained.
