Registration has now opened for our ISKO UK BIENNIAL CONFERENCE – 8/9
July 2013, London.
The theme is: *Knowledge Organization - Pushing the Boundaries*
Knowledge Organization (KO) is not just a fascinating research domain to
attract our foremost thinkers; it also presents practical challenges to
each of us as individuals, sorting out the files on our desktops
physical and virtual, searching for inspiration via the Internet, or
participating in the fora of social media. But there’s a paradox: while
KO practices permeate society, the name “Knowledge Organization” is
known only to a few. Invisible boundaries separate KO researchers from
the practitioners who could benefit from their findings, and also come
between distinct fields of application such as records management, web
design, librarianship, information retrieval, etc.
This conference aims to explore such boundaries, challenge them and
advance our thinking into new territory. It will be the third biennial
conference of the UK Chapter of ISKO. Practitioners as well as
theoreticians are invited to attend and participate, along with
consultants, researchers, teachers and students. There will be a mix of
short and longer presentations, as well as a display of posters. The
papers submitted will be peer-reviewed and published electronically on
this website, together with slides and audio recordings.
On our website at <http://www.iskouk.org/conf2013/index.htm> you can
find more details, including a provisional programme. 33 Presentations
are scheduled, including keynote addresses from leading lights Patrick
Lambe and Martin White. Two of the sessions will be co-organized by our
sister associations, UKeiG and LIRG respectively. We're expecting a good
number of posters too, and will be encouraging the vendors of relevant
software applications, products and services to support the conference
by exhibiting their wares.
Registration fees for the two-day event are still the same as for our
2011 conference, just
180 pounds (full price)
150 pounds (ISKO members)
150 pounds (early-bird rate, until 30 April)
130 pounds (early-bird rate for ISKO members)
Members of UKeiG and/or LIRG will be entitled to the same rates as ISKO
Still hesitating? Take a look at the electronic proceedings of our first
and second biennial conferences at
http://www.iskouk.org/conf2011/programme.htm respectively. The 2013
event will be bigger and better than either of these, and we hope you
will be able to come and enjoy it.
