      We would like to invite you to a half-day event organized by the British
      Chapter of International Society for Knowledge Organization (ISKO UK)
      entitled

      "Sharing Vocabularies on the Web via Simple Knowledge Organization
      System (SKOS)" in London

      21 July 2008 from 14:00 - 19:00 (registration starts at 13:30)
      Venue: University College London, Engineering Faculty, Roberts Building
      G06, Sir Ambrose Fleming Lecture Theatre

      Cost: 20 GBP (students and ISKO members free!)

      Predictions for the Semantic Web are heavily dependent on the ability of
      computers to reason and communicate using controlled vocabularies. SKOS
      (Simple Knowledge Organization System) development aims to bring forward
      these capabilities.

      Aware of the growing importance of SKOS, ISKO UK in cooperation with
      School of Library, Archives and Information Studies at UCL has invited a
      group of experts to introduce this standard, explain its status,
      potential and scope. Speakers on this event - Alistair Miles, Antoine
      Isaac, Stella Dextre Clarke, Leonard Will, Nicolas Cochard, Ceri Binding
      and Douglas Tudhope - are involved in the development and application of
      SKOS and related standards and are hoping to provoke some interesting
      discussion.

      This event, the third in ISKO UK's KOnnecting KOmmunities series,
      promises a fascinating glimpse of the future of controlled vocabularies.
      No one involved or interested in the development, management or
      implementation of controlled vocabularies can afford to miss it.

      For full details on the venue, programme and to book your place at the
      event visit http://www.iskouk.org/SKOS_July2008.htm.

      Looking forward to seeing you in July!
