Dear Colleagues

Do join us at University College London <http://www.ucl.ac.uk/> on 4th
-5th July for the second biennial ISKO UK Conference
<http://www.iskouk.org/conf2011/index.htm>, which honours the life and
achievements of Brian C Vickery.

Early Bird registration with reduced fees continues until *Friday 29th 
April*. After that date the standard fees will be payable until June 
24th. You can find out more details of the event and register via 
“Registration” on the conference site. 
<http://www.iskouk.org/conf2011/index.htm>

This will be a very full programme with the theme */Facets of Knowledge
Organization/*, with 27 presentations as well as seven posters. Day One
includes a special session co-organized by our colleagues in the
European network of NKOS <http://nkos.slis.kent.edu/> (Networked
Knowledge Organization Systems/Services). The topic, “What role can KOS
play in information retrieval applications?” was inspired by Brian
Vickery’s long-standing interest in information retrieval. On the second
day we shall hear from several other speakers who have drawn on
Vickery’s legacy.

This year the Proceedings will be published and sent to all those
attending the Conference, including not only the presented papers, but a
selection of papers either by, or about, Brian Vickery.

Our keynote speakers include Stephen Robertson, now at the Microsoft 
Research Laboratory in Cambridge; and Amanda Spink, recently appointed 
to the Chair in Information Science at Loughborough University. Details 
of the programme are available on the website.

Places are limited and we look forward to welcoming you to a lively and
engaging event
