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

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

**Dear SKOS Colleagues,
Most SKOS developments are highly relevant to the third biennial 
conference of the UK Chapter of ISKO (International Society for 
Knowledge Organization). Please take this opportunity to share news of 
your work with the rest  of us, and/or alert any colleagues who may be 
interested. See more details at http://www.iskouk.org/conf2013/index.htm

*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 move forward. 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.

<http://www.iskouk.org/conf2013/abstractsubmissions.htm> page, by 30 
November 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
