Digital transformation: a new world of production

Call for papers

The international conference TOKI2023 "Transition from Observation to Knowledge to Intelligence 2023" is an initiative of the West African chapter of the International Society for Knowledge Organization (ISKO) whose mission is to advance conceptual work in the organization of knowledge in all forms and for all purposes.

TOKI 2023 is a forum that allows researchers and practitioners from the fields of Knowledge Organization & Management, Information Science, Data Science, Information Systems, Competitive Intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Semantic Web, Natural Language Processing, Interoperable, and Adaptive Information Systems and Health Information Systems to present their novel research findings and results.  Common to all these fields are the concepts of information, information systems, knowledge, intelligence, decision-support systems, ubiquities, etc. The relevance of research findings results obtained, systems developed, and techniques adopted in these research fields for both the industries and government cannot be overemphasized.

This conference held in Cameroon aims to bring the African intelligentsia and their counterparts around the globe to build a corpus of scientific knowledge and be able to serve as a federative platform for all this knowledge.
