Knowledge Management @ Kent State University


Knowledge Management @ Kent State University
The Knowledge Sciences Symposium will be held in two locations to facilitate the participation of all delegates.  The first session will be held Sept. 4 and 5 at The University Center on the Kent State University Stark Campus in Canton, Ohio.  The second session will be held Sept. 10 and 11 at the Department of Transportation Library at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C.  Physical and remote participation will be supported for both sessions. The Symposium is free and open to all thanks to the generous support of our partners, the Department of Transportation and the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company.
The Ohio session is being held at The University Center, Northeast Ohio’s most technologically advanced conference facility.  The University Center is conveniently located between Columbus and Cleveland and is served by the Akron-Canton Airport – just a short three mile drive – and the Cleveland Hopkins Airport.  See the Mapquest map to get directions.  There are many lodging and transportation options. 
The Washington, D.C., session will be held at the U.S. Department of Transportation Library in the Southeast Federal Center.  The building is served by the Navy Yard (green line) stop along the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA).  See the DOT directions for other modes of transportation.
