>Journal of Digital Information announces a Special Issue on
>New Applications of Knowledge Organization Systems
>Special issue Editors: Traugott Koch and Doug Tudhope
>Lund University and University of Glamorgan
>Submission deadline: 7 October 2003
>Publication: January 2004
>Submissions are sought for a special edition of JoDI on new applications
>and contexts for Knowledge Organisation Systems (KOS). This includes but is
>not restricted to novel applications and representations of KOS in advanced
>digital library (DL) and semantic Web environments.
>This call builds on two recent NKOS workshops at JCDL 2003 in Houston, and
>ECDL 2003 in Trondheim. A number of submissions have already been committed
>based on presentations given at the workshops.
>More generally, we welcome submissions that fit the scope of the call from
>all interested parties and communities. Articles from a previous NKOS issue
>(April 2001) rank among the most popular JoDI publications based on access
>KOS services, such as classifications, gazetteers, lexical databases,
>ontologies, taxonomies and thesauri model the underlying semantic structure
>of a domain. Embodied as (Web) services, they can facilitate resource
>discovery and retrieval. They act as semantic road maps and make possible a
>common orientation by indexers and future users (whether human or machine).
>However, using them to their full potential in advanced DL and semantic Web
>applications poses various new challenges.
>For more details, indicative topics and the submission procedure, see the
>full call http://jodi.ecs.soton.ac.uk/calls/newnkos.html
>All submissions will be subject to peer review.
>The Journal of Digital Information is an electronic journal published only
>via the Web. JoDI is currently free to all users thanks to support from the
>British Computer Society and Oxford University Press.
>Some Indicative Topics (not intended to be exhaustive)
>Digital library requirements for integration of KOS into DL services
>Standards for constructing, representing and applying KOS in digital
>Namespaces and registries for KOS and KOS relationships
>Maintenance and update of KOS
>Distributed access to KOS, Web service applications
>Interoperability, cross-browsing and cross-searching
>Knowledge organisation as support for Web-based information retrieval
>Knowledge organisation for filtering, information extraction, summary
>Knowledge organisation for indexing and annotation
>Knowledge organisation support for multilingual systems, natural language
>Application of language engineering/terminology/corpus analysis with KOS
>Semantic Web applications of KOS
>Ontology description languages, standards and applications
>XML/RDF representations for KOS content
>User interfaces, KOS visualisation
>Evaluation and studies of use, end-user interactions with KOS
