Dear**Colleagues in SKOS


ISKO-UK AGM and meeting - Organizing information: roles, skills and 
training for the future


**

How easily do you find people with the skills and background to develop 
a KOS and then convert it to SKOS and really exploit the outcomes? The 
upcoming ISKO UK meeting sets out to explore the skills gap and consider 
what we can do to address it. As well as brief presentations as outlined 
below, there will be a panel discussion focusing on the "Go-Betweens" - 
that is to say people with the technology skills to undertake  work such 
as SKOS or OWL implementation, who also have a grasp of the needs and 
opportunities for building a KOS in the first place.

The programme includes:

  *

    Job seeking and project hunting*.* Aref Makooi (Independent consultant)

  *

    The teaching of KO in Further and Higher Education – does it do the
    job? Sylvie Davies (Robert Gordon University)

  *

    Recruiting in KO*.* Anne Ashdown (TFPL)

  *

    Understanding KO in practice*.* Vivienne Winterman (CILIP)

  *

    The changing face of information architecture*.* Mike Atherton
    (Independent Consultant)

  *

    The future is bright? Trends and the implications for IK, KM and
    KO*.* Noeleen Schenk (Metataxis)

  *

    Panel discussion

  *

    Wine and nibbles.


The event is sponsored by Metataxis Ltd*.
