Making metadata work - Monday 23rd June 2014 - BCS Office, 5 Southampton Street, London WC2E 7HA.
Full details and booking at <http://www.iskouk.org/events/metadata_June_2014.htm>

This event will be a showcase for the latest developments in the evolution of the Semantic Web, exploitation of Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS), metadata annotation to aid workflow automation, information retrieval in networks of diverse media assets, Linked Data, and other opportunities for using metadata. It is a Joint Meeting of ISKO UK, IRSG (Information Retrieval Special Interest Group of BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT) and DCMI (Dublin Core Metadata Initiative). The day will be modular: attendance in the morning is optional, with a choice of workshop or tutorial, while the afternoon programme is for everyone. A vocabulary workshop in the morning will interest anyone involved in KOS linkage, including use of SKOS.

Morning options
a) Tutorial: Metadata management in Sharepoint (10.00 -12.00)
While Sharepoint 2013 offers more metadata capabilities than ever before, the range of options can make it hard to implement the most effective way. Management of controlled vocabularies is a particular challenge. This tutorial will enable you to pick the brains of an experienced consultant, Marc Stephenson of Metataxis.
b) Workshop: Vocabularies and the potential for linkage (9.30 – 12.30)
Various approaches to the linkage of value vocabularies (KOSs) and/or element set vocabularies (metadata schemas) will be described by Pierre-Yves Vandenbussche (Fujitsu, Ireland), Dan Brickley (Google), Gordon Dunsire and Stella Dextre Clarke, with emphasis on the opportunities as well as the barriers to widespread adoption. After that is a case study from Johan De Smedt and Agis Papantoniou, both of TenForce, that draws on more than one technique. The subsequent discussion will address the prospects for take-up, aiming to help participants with application or development of similar techniques and projects.

Afternoon meeting (Plenary, 14.00 – 18.00)
Martin White: The importance of metadata for high quality Search
Sean Bechhofer: Wf4Ever: metadata for “Research Objects”
Mark Sandler: Semantic Media: a new paradigm for navigable content for the 21st century
Richard Ranft: Enhancing discovery of the British Library's audio collections
Antoine Isaac: A portrait of Europeana as a Linked Open Data case (in progress)
Andrew MacFarlane: Analysing creative image search queries to determine important facets
Followed by networking, wine and nibbles from 18.00.

Registration fee and booking
Full day, including lunch and a choice of tutorial or workshop: £120 (or £70 for members of ISKO, IRSG or DCMI and for full-time students);
Afternoon only: £60 (or £25 for members of ISKO, IRSG or DCMI and for full-time students).
Booking is open at <http://www.iskouk.org/events/metadata_June_2014.htm>

ISKO (International Society for Knowledge Organization) is a not-for-profit scientific/professional association with the objective of promoting research and communication in the domain of knowledge organization, within the broad field of information science and related disciplines. Founded in 2007, our UK Chapter has been attracting lively and steadily growing audiences to its afternoon meeting series (see slides and recordings at http://www.iskouk.org/events.htm). Its third conference was held in July 2013 on the general theme of “Knowledge organization – pushing the boundaries” http://www.iskouk.org/conf2013/.

Established in 1978, the main aim of the BCS IRSG is supporting the communication between information retrieval (IR) researchers and practitioners, promoting the use of IR methods in industry and raising public awareness of IR-related topics. Recognizing IR as an interdisciplinary field, a further aim of the BCS IRSG is to act as a link between computer science, library and information science and also cognate communities (like natural language processing).

About DCMI
The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) is an open, international forum for the development of interoperable online metadata standards with diverse applications. DCMI's activities include consensus-driven working groups, global conferences and workshops, standards liaison, and educational efforts to promote widespread acceptance of metadata standards and practices. DCMI is a project of ASIS&T (the Association for Information Science and Technology).

We shall all look forward to welcoming you on the day. To avoid disappointment, please don't delay in booking.
