Colleagues,
         **********Apologies for cross-postings**********
If you have not already registered, please don’t miss the registration 
deadline of June 24th for the ISKO UK Biennial Conference  at University 
College London on 4th-5th July. It honours the life and achievements of 
the pioneering Brian C Vickery. Details of the event are on the 
conference site (http://www.iskouk.org/conf2011/index.htm), where you 
can also register.

The theme is Facets of Knowledge Organization, with 28 presentations as 
well as seven posters. Day One includes a special session co-organized 
by the European network of NKOS (Networked Knowledge Organization 
Systems/Services). The topic, “What role can KOS play in information 
retrieval applications?” was inspired by Brian Vickery’s longstanding 
interest in information retrieval. On the second day we shall hear from 
several other speakers who have drawn on Vickery’s legacy.

Our keynote speakers include Stephen Robertson, well known for his 
search algorithm and now a full-time researcher 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.

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.

Please pass on this reminder to any interested colleagues.

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

See you there!
Stella Dextre Clarke
Chair, ISKO-UK
