Colleagues,
This is to remind you that proposals must be submitted by November 30th 
2010 for the second biennial conference of the UK Chapter of ISKO 
(International Society for Knowledge Organization).

Theme: Facets of Knowledge Organization

Venue/date: UCL in London / 4-5 July 2011

Submit your proposal at: http://www.iskouk.org/conf2011/index.htm

Deadline: 30 November 2010


This event honours the life and achievements of Brian C Vickery, a 
pioneer in our field. Just as Vickery had the knack of drawing out 
practical applications from the lessons of academic research, so this 
conference will bring together practitioners, theoreticians, 
consultants, researchers, teachers and students, all with an interest in 
the organization of knowledge and information.

Proposals addressing an original topic on this theme are very welcome, 
but the following suggestions may provide some inspiration:
•Classification, information retrieval
•Semantics and the Web
•Putting the user first
•Evaluation and testing
•Society, networking and collaboration
•Models and structure

We are looking for a mix of short (20-minute) and longer (40-minute) 
presentations, as well as a display of posters. Speakers will be 
encouraged to provide a paper to accompany their presentations.

ISKO is a not-for-profit scientific/professional association with the 
objective of promoting research and communication in the domain of 
knowledge organization, within the broad field of information science 
and related disciplines. Founded in 2007, our UK Chapter has been 
attracting lively and steadily growing audiences to its afternoon 
meeting series as well as its very successful first conference in 2009.

We look forward to your participation in this event.
Stella Dextre Clarke
Events Manager, ISKO-UK
