Dear Colleagues,

*FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS: Knowledge Organization - Pushing the Boundaries*

*ISKO-UK BIENNIAL CONFERENCE – 8/9 July 2013, London*

Please take this final opportunity to submit your proposal for a paper at the third
biennial conference of the UK Chapter of ISKO. Previous ISKO-UK
conferences have attracted a worldwide audience, and the 2013 event
should again provide the ideal forum for presenting your work. The
deadline for submission of abstracts, previously 30 November, has now
been extended until 9 December 2012. Full details are at

*Conference theme and topics*

On the general theme of “pushing the boundaries”, some boundaries that
deserve challenge include:

- between research and practice: how to achieve better synergy?

- between one type of KOS and another, e.g. between thesauri and

- between knowledge management professionals and IT professionals

- between one scientific discipline and another (with new knowledge
taking shape at the boundary)

- between the resources on the Web and those behind our firewalls.

In confronting any of the above, or indeed a boundary of your own
choice, a contribution on any KO topic is welcome, especially if it
helps us advance. Topics currently of interest include:

- Linked open data initiatives

- Metadata management

- Ontologies applied to knowledge engineering

- Searching in a networked environment

- Evolution of social media

- Transmedia narrative

- Semantic modelling

- Vocabulary crosswalks and registries

- Organizing and integrating images.

Proposals should be submitted in English via the Abstract submission
page (http://www.iskouk.org/conf2013/abstractsubmissions.htm), by 9
December 2012 at latest. Please provide an abstract of
300-500 words, and indicate whether you plan a short or long
presentation, or a poster. You will be informed by 1 February 2013
whether your proposal has been accepted. For publication on the website,
your full paper should be submitted by 2 July 2013. Editorial guidelines
will be available from February 2013, on the conference website.
Presentation slides too should be submitted by 2 July 2013. They will be
pre-loaded on the conference PC, and released on the conference website
immediately after the event.
