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)

ISKO UK 2009 conference "Content Architecture: Exploiting and Managing 
Diverse Resources" will provide a rare opportunity for researchers, 
practitioners and innovators from all sectors to share ideas on the 
opportunities and challenges implicit in the digitization and networking 
of diverse information resources. The Conference will address issues in 
the organization and integration of text, images, data and voice - 
multimedia and multilingual.

Over the past year ISKO UK (http://www.iskouk.org/) has attracted large 
and lively audiences of content and information architects, website 
developers, knowledge engineers, information managers and many others 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.

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

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
