The 7th Knowledge Cities World Summit (KCWS-2014) will be held in Tallinn, Estonia, which has been awarded as one among Top 7 Intelligent Communities in 2013. Estonia is often called "e-Estonia" to describe Estonia's emergence as one of the most advanced e-societies in the world and Estonians have the privilege to enjoy a large range of e-solutions and services. Since Estonia is willing to be the example for others who wish to follow the same path, the theme of "knowledge-based services" is selected as the overall theme of KSWS-2014.
The summit aims to contribute to the discussion on the importance and trends of knowledge-based business and public services' sector for the economic and social development. Academics, professional practitioners, civil servants and policy-makers of the world are included in the discussions from a wide range of disciplines to share their knowledge and experiences with the summit delegates. In addition to significant academic and professional presentations, the summit will also provide opportunities for practical exercises in workshops and small group sessions in innovative formats.
As part of the KCWS-2014, a PhD Consortium is planned to provide postgraduate research students an invaluable opportunity to present, discuss and get feedback on their research projects from the international experts of their fields.
