We are pleased to announce that the "Classification and Ontology"
programme is now available on the conference website.

The conference focuses on knowledge classification systems and their
role in the development of the Semantic Web, bringing together
stakeholders from the web ontology and knowledge organization fields.

Highlights: The conference opens with a keynote address by Prof. Patrick
Hayes, who participated in the W3C Working Groups responsible for
the RDF, OWL and SPARQL standards and has been a key player in the Semantic
Web initiative.

The programme that follows has an outstanding selection of speakers from
the domains of web technology, ontology, knowledge organization and
bibliographic classification: Dan Brickley, Guus Schreiber, Thomas Baker,
Dagobert Soergel, Roberto Poli, Ingetraut Dahlberg, Barbara Kwasnik,
Rebecca Green etc.  We are very pleased to have attracted researchers
representing most of the important classification schools, trends and
systems.

The two-day conference will take place in the Koninklijke Bibliotheek.
The programme includes 21 talks organized into seven sessions:

-- The role of classification and ontology in accessing and processing
data on the Web
-- Classifications and ontologies on their own terms
-- Classification meets the Web
-- Classification and ontology in specific subjects
-- Categories and relations: key elements of ontologies
-- Modelling concepts and structures in analytico-synthetic classifications
-- Transforming and extending classification systems
