      ==== FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS ====

      Classification& Ontology - Formal Approaches and Access to Knowledge
      International UDC Seminar 2011

      VENUE: The Hague, National Library of the Netherlands (Koninklijke Bibliotheek)
      DATE: 19-20 September 2011
      WEBSITE: http://seminar.udcc.org/2011/

      The difference between bibliographic knowledge classifications and ontologies resides in
      their particular purpose/function, and levels of formality. However, they are
      both based on observation and reasoning (ontological analysis) and share some
      structural principles and elements. In principle, automatic processing of
      knowledge classifications is significant whenever there is a need to support
      intuitive services. For instance, ontology-like representations of
      classifications are recognized as potentially important facilitators in creating
      a web of linked data (the semantic web).

      The objective of this conference is to promote collaboration and exchange of
      expertise between the bibliographic, the semantic web and the AI domains. We
      hope to learn more about methods in ontology modelling and whether these may be
      used to improve and formalise the data models of bibliographic classifications
      and enhance their value in information discovery.

      Papers are now invited covering the following topics:

      1. Modelling and representation of knowledge classifications
      2. Standards and solutions for innovative and high-quality classification data
      processing
      3. Applications and implementations of classification structures as ontologies
      4.Theoretical considerations of the role of knowledge classifications

      The proposals should be of interest to academic and research communities dealing
      with conceptual modelling, information systems design, knowledge organization,
      knowledge engineering, semantic interoperability& information integration, and
      natural-language processing. Read more and downloasud the full text of the CFP at
      the conference website http://seminar.udcc.org/2011/.

      Contributions may include conference papers and posters. Authors should submit a
      proposal in the form of an extended abstract (1000-1200 words including
      references, for papers, and 500-600 words for posters). To submit proposal
      online go to the conference website.

      Conference proceedings will be published by Ergon Verlag and will be distributed
      at the conference.
