Final Reminder: Call for Papers, ISKO-UK BIENNIAL CONFEREN CE "KO Pushing the Boundaries" - 8/9 July 2013
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.
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.
