The International Scientific Conference KNOWCON Knowledge on Economics and Management (before 2019 as Knowledge for Market Use) has been organized by the Department of Applied Economics, Faculty of Arts, Palacky University in Olomouc, Czech Republic every year since 2006.

Knowledge is the key element to economic competitiveness. The goal of the conference is to present the current development of knowledge management and its impact on the field of management, marketing, financial management, and other fields of knowledge economy. For this reason the conference has a different subheading every year, depending on its focus.

Conference proceedings are published electronically with an ISBN. You can also find all previous proceedings on this website. The Proceedings of Knowledge for Market Use 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016 have been indexed by Web of Science. The Proceedings of 2014, 2017 and 2018 are now being evaluated.
