Dear Colleagues,
                    CALL FOR PAPERS
The second biennial conference of the UK Chapter of ISKO (International 
Society for Knowledge Organization) honours the life and achievements of 
Brian C Vickery, a pioneer in our field. The venue is University College 
London, and our theme will be: Facets of Knowledge Organization.

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.
Proposals should be submitted in English by 30th November 2010 at the 
latest.  For further information and submission, please visit:

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 (See http://www.iskouk.org/events.htm) as well as its 
very successful first conference in 2009 (See 
http://www.iskouk.org/conf2009/index.htm).

We look forward to your participation in this event.
Regards
Stella Dextre Clarke
