====== FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS ======

CONTENT ARCHITECTURE: EXPLOITING AND MANAGING DIVERSE RESOURCES
London, 22-23 June 2009

Biennial Conference of the British Chapter of the International Society
for Knowledge Organization (ISKO UK)

Present your paper at the ISKO UK 2009 conference "Content Architecture: 
Exploiting and Managing Diverse Resources" and you will reach a marvellous 
audience of researchers, practitioners and innovators from all sectors. The 
conference is all about bringing things together - content, people and ideas. We 
shall address issues in the organization and integration of text, images, data 
and voice - multimedia and
multilingual.

Among the highlights will be keynote addresses from Clifford Lynch, Director of 
the Coalition for Networked Information, and Professor David Crystal, the 
renowned author, linguist and broadcaster.

A wide spectrum of contributors from across the knowledge organization
sector will follow, ensuring ample cross-fertilization of ideas.
Networking will be central, in more than one way.

Over the past year ISKO UK (http://www.iskouk.org/) has been attracting large, 
lively and steadily growing audiences to its afternoon meeting series 
(http://www.iskouk.org/events.htm). The conference aims to extend this wide 
audience to ensure that all aspects of knowledge organization are represented.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is now quite close, so please do not 
miss it!

THEMES of the 2009 Conference include:
    semantic interoperability across networked resources
    metadata models and architecture
    retrieval of still and/or moving images
    audio retrieval
    user enhancement (via tagging, feedback, etc.) of content
    multilingual access to mixed resources
    integrated combinations of media and/or content types
    innovative applications for semantic analysis

PAPERS ON THE CONFERENCE THEMES ARE INVITED from the academic and
practitioner communities and may present research, case studies or even
success stories! Contributions may be full length (5-10,000 words) or
brief (2-4,000 words). Proposals for posters may be submitted too. Full
presentations will be allowed 40 minutes, including at least 5 minutes
for questions, while brief presentations should occupy a total of 20
minutes. As well as being available online to coincide with the
Conference, the Proceedings will be published afterwards in a leading
peer-reviewed journal.
