The Australian Society for Knowledge Management Conference (AuSKM Conference), formerly branded as Knowledge Management Melbourne (KMELB), successor of the Australian Capital Territory Knowledge Management (actKM) Forum Conference, is a 1-day conference with post-conference workshops, organized by the Australian Society for Knowledge Management (AuSKM) and partners from the Australian Knowledge Management communities.

The Australian Capital Territory Knowledge Management Forum Conference (actKM) was the Forum’s annual conference in Canberra. The intention behind the conference was to provide a rich interactive experience for delegates and therefore they place lots of emphasis on workshops, networking and learning activities (senior executive breakfast, poster corner and competition, KM Board Game, Knowledge Wall, collaboration cabaret, conference and awards dinner, welcome cocktail party, etc) and the actKM Knowledge Management Awards ceremony. (until 2005 the Knowledge Management in Government Awards ceremony)
