Ontology-like representations of classifications are recognized as potentially
important facilitators in creating a web of linked data.

The conference keynote speaker is Professor Patrick Hayes, one of the key players
in the Semantic Web initiative and the development of RDF, OWL and SPARQL. His talk
entitled "On being the same" will remind us of some oddities and internal 
inconsistencies
in data found on the Web, as the Semantic web starts to take shape with the rise 
of linked data.

Following the keynote address we will hear a selection of speakers from the 
domains of
web technology, ontology, knowledge organization and bibliographic 
classification, including
Dan Brickley, Guus Schreiber, Thomas Baker, Dagobert Soergel, Roberto Poli,
Ingetraut Dahlberg, Barbara Kwasnik, Rebecca Green, Michael Panzer, Marcia Zeng,
Daniel Kless, Joan Mitchell, Richard Smiraglia, Vanda Broughton, Devika Madalli, 
Claudio Gnoli
and more.
