CLASSIFICATION AND VISUALIZATION:INTERFACES TO KNOWLEDGE

International UDC Seminar 2013

VENUE:The Hague, National Library of the Netherlands

DATE: 24-25 October 2013

WEBSITE: http://seminar.udcc.org/2013/

CONTACT: seminar2013@udcc.org

The objective of this conference is to explore cutting edge advances and
techniques in the visualization of knowledge across various fields of
application and their potential impact on developments in the more main stream
bibliographic and documentary classifications.

We invite overviews, illustrations and analysis of approaches to and models of
the visualization of knowledge that can help advance the application of
documentary and bibliographic classifications in information and knowledge
discovery. We welcome high quality, innovative research contributions from
various fields of application including:

- visualization of knowledge orders (e.g. scientific taxonomies, Wikipedia)
- visualization of collection content, large datasets
- visualization of knowledge classifications for the purpose of managing the
classifications and working with them
- visualization of knowledge to support interactive searching, user browsing
behaviour (IR) and classification as an aid to information navigation

Specific topics may include:

1. Issues and challenges in visualization of conceptual structures and knowledge
in general, e.g. development of knowledge over time, shift in knowledge
structures (dynamic knowledge), interactions between knowledge structures,
socio-cultural issues, technical challenges (incl. animation, simulation)

2. Knowledge visualization models and metaphors: theory, methods, overviews,
analysis

3. Visualization of classification in: information searching and browsing (e.g.
search expansion, result display); visualization of knowledge in relation to
user information needs

4. Presentation and visualization related to specific types of knowledge
classification structure (e.g. faceted and enumerative hierarchies,
polyhierarchical and/or aspect classifications etc.)

5. Classification as an aid in presenting and navigating large datasets, or
providing an overview of collection content for resource discovery or management
purposes

6. Visualization as an aid to cross-collection, cross-language, cross-vocabulary
knowledge browsing

7. Relationships between classification data formats and classification
visualization

We invite two kinds of contributions: conference papers and posters. Paper
proposals should be submitted in the form of an extended abstract (1000-1200
words including references for papers and 500-600 words for posters). A
submission form is provided on the conference website.

Conference proceedings will be published by Ergon Verlag and will be distributed
at the conference.

IMPORTANT DATES:
15 Jan 2013 - Paper proposal submission deadline

15 Feb 2013 - Notification of acceptance

15 Apr 2013 - Paper submission

ORGANIZER: Classification and  Visualization is the fourth biennial conference in a
series of International UDC Seminars organized by the UDC Consortium (UDCC) and
hosted by Koninklijke Bibliotheek (The National Library of Netherlands). UDCC is
a not-for-profit organization, based in The Hague, established to maintain and
distribute the Universal Decimal Classification and to support its use and
development.
