Final reminder: ISKO UK meeting: The Shape of Knowledge -Tuesday 4th September
Thefinal programme for the next ISKO UK meeting, The Shape of Knowledge, is now available on our website at http://www.iskouk.org/events/shape_of_knowledge_Sep2012.htm.
Thisafternoon meeting at the London College of Communication gives us an opportunity to think about the ways in which knowledge and information can be analysed and presented, for example to bring out underlying patterns or to emphasize specific aspects of the information. The meeting will also examine some of the organizing principles behind the presentation and different approaches to visualizing data, information and knowledge. One talk addresses touch technologies too.
Theevent should appeal not only to those whose main business is the organization of knowledge, and who wish to disseminate this knowledge as effectively as possible, but also to designers, whose main concern is how design can be used to present knowledge and information in the most attractive and appealing way.
Ifyou have not already booked, please don't forget to do so by 30 August. The meeting is free for ISKO members and full-time students, and just GBP40 for everyone else.
