BLISS CLASSIFICATION ASSOCIATION
ANNUAL LECTURE

The BCA Annual Lecture 2005 will be delivered by Alistair Miles,
Rutherford Appleton Laboratory

"Simple Knowledge Organisation System (SKOS)"

SKOS <http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/> is part of the W3C Semantic Web 
Best Practices and Deployment Working Group.  Its objective is to 
provide a simple yet powerful framework for expressing knowledge 
organisation systems in a machine-understandable way using the Resource 
Description Framework.  SKOS enables  the representation of both basic 
structure and content of concept schemes (thesauri, classification 
schemes, subject heading lists, taxonomies, terminologies, glossaries 
and other types of controlled vocabulary), and is an important example 
of convergence of conceptual structures and W3 technology.

The lecture will take place immediately after the AGM of the Bliss 
Classification Association at 2.15 p.m. on Friday 25 November 2005, in 
the New Seminar Room, University of London Library, Senate House, Malet 
Street, London WC1E 7HU.

Refreshments are provided, and both BCA members and non-members are 
welcome. Booking is not necessary, but any enquiries may be sent to the 
current Hon. Secretary of the BCA, Vanda Broughton <uczcvbr@ucl.ac.uk>.
