The Knowledge Aware Conference (KAConf, Knowledge Aware or KA Conference), also known as the Auros Knowledge Aware Conference, formerly the Auros Knowledge Aware Engineering Conference (KAE Conference) and the Auros Engineering Knowledge Management Conference, is an annual two-day event that brings hundreds of leading organizations and engineering experts together to explore the Knowledge Aware approach. This approach is transforming the way product development companies across automotive, aerospace, shipbuilding, and other industries develop products by capturing, sharing, and reusing active organizational knowledge to propel businesses forward. The conference features sessions covering state-of-the-art Knowledge Management (KM) tools and strategies for adopting and growing the approach. It also facilitates engaging networking sessions and fosters learning opportunities from other leaders.

Throughout the two days, organizations will share their best practices on how they implemented Knowledge Aware within their organization and ways it improved their organization.

Since 2017 in conjunction with the Cool K-PAC Competition, where Auros Knowledge Systems’ customers showcase how they utilize the Auros technology to accomplish different things and solve the problems they have.
