Dear Colleagues,
Please remember to book a place at the ISKO-UK July conference before 
the end of April, i.e. while early bird rates apply. Details are given 
below, or just go straight to 
http://www.iskouk.org/conf2013/programme.htm and choose the 
"Registration" button to make a booking.

The theme is: *Knowledge Organization - Pushing the Boundaries*

Knowledge Organization (KO) is not just a fascinating research domain to 
attract our foremost thinkers; it also presents practical challenges to 
each of us as individuals, sorting out the files on our desktops 
physical and virtual, searching for inspiration via the Internet, or 
participating in the fora of social media. But there'€™s a paradox: 
while KO practices permeate society, the name €"Knowledge 
Organization"€ is known only to a few. Invisible boundaries separate KO 
researchers from the practitioners who could benefit from their 
findings, and also come between distinct fields of application such as 
records management, web design, librarianship, information retrieval, etc.

This conference aims to explore such boundaries, challenge them and 
advance our thinking into new territory. It will be the third biennial 
conference of the UK Chapter of ISKO. Practitioners as well as 
theoreticians are invited to attend and participate, along with 
consultants, researchers, teachers and students. There will be a mix of 
short and longer presentations, as well as a display of posters. The 
papers submitted will be peer-reviewed and published electronically on 
this website, together with slides and audio recordings.

More details, including the provisional programme, can be found on the 
conference website at <http://www.iskouk.org/conf2013/index.htm>. 33 
Presentations are scheduled, including keynote addresses from leading 
lights Patrick Lambe and Martin White. Two of the sessions will be 
co-organized by our sister associations, UKeiG and LIRG respectively. 
We're expecting a good number of posters too, and will be encouraging 
the vendors of relevant software applications, products and services to 
support the conference by exhibiting their wares.

Registration fees for the two-day event are still the same as for our 
2011 conference, just

180 pounds (full price)
150 pounds (ISKO members)
150 pounds (early-bird rate, until 30 April)
130 pounds (early-bird rate for ISKO members)

Members of UKeiG and/or LIRG will be entitled to the same rates as ISKO 

Still hesitating? Take a look at the electronic proceedings of our first 
and second biennial conferences at 
http://www.iskouk.org/conf2009/proceedings.htm and 
http://www.iskouk.org/conf2011/programme.htm respectively. The 2013 
event will be bigger and better than either of these, and we hope you 
will be able to come and enjoy it.
