      Please remember to submit your proposal for a paper at the third biennial conference of the UK Chapter of ISKO. Previous ISKO-UK conferences have attracted a worldwide audience, and the 2013 event should again provide the ideal forum for presenting your work. The deadline for submission of abstracts, previously 30 November, has now been extended until 9 December 2012. Full details are at http://www.iskouk.org/conf2013/index.htm

      Conference theme and topics

      On the general theme of “pushing the boundaries”, some boundaries that deserve challenge include:

      -          between research and practice: how to achieve better synergy?

      -          between one type of KOS and another, e.g. between thesauri and terminologies

      -          between knowledge management professionals and IT professionals

      -          between one scientific discipline and another (with new knowledge taking shape at the boundary)

      -          between the resources on the Web and those behind our firewalls.

      In confronting any of the above, or indeed a boundary of your own choice, a contribution on any KO topic is welcome, especially if it helps us move forward. Topics currently of interest include:

      -          Linked open data initiatives

      -          Metadata management

      -          Ontologies applied to knowledge engineering

      -          Searching in a networked environment

      -          Evolution of social media

      -          Transmedia narrative

      -          Semantic modelling

      -          Vocabulary crosswalks and registries

      -          Organizing and integrating images.

      Submissions
      Proposals should be submitted in English via the Abstract submission page, by 9 December 2012 at latest. Please provide an abstract of 300-500 words, and indicate whether you plan a short or long presentation, or a poster. You will be informed by 1 February 2013 whether your proposal has been accepted. For publication on the website, your full paper should be submitted by 2 July 2013. Editorial guidelines will be available from February 2013, on the conference website. Presentation slides too should be submitted by 2 July 2013. They will be pre-loaded on the conference PC, and released on the conference website immediately after the event.
