Don't miss the ISKO UK BIENNIAL CONFERENCE on 13/14 July 2015 . With a theme of Knowledge Organization – Making a difference, this conference will explore, justify and proclaim the continuing demand for Knowledge Organization (KO). It will be a showcase for R & D that offers benefits in your workplace, for cultural activities and economic development, and an opportunity to consider the impact that KO has had, is having and will have. Details of the programme and arrangements may be found at: http://www.iskouk.org/content/knowledge-organization-making-difference Who should attend This conference caters amply for practitioners alongside theoreticians, including consultants, researchers, teachers and students. Knowledge Organization is useful to systems designers as well as information managers, with applications in areas as diverse as web design, records management, digital libraries and asset management, network management, etc. Sharing ideas is the way to advance your own thinking – do come and join the discussions! Some highlights ˇ As Keynote speakers we have Alan Gilchrist and Dagobert Soergel, both influential writers and speakers in the field. While Gilchrist reflects on the advances already achieved through KO, Soergel looks to a future in which KO structures enable connections, inferencing, understanding and exploiting information. ˇ Patrick Lambe, already a popular speaker at our past conferences, returns to urge a proactive role for KO professionals in designing and developing networked knowledge environments. He will also facilitate an interactive fishbowl session for all of us to discuss what we can do in the workplace to implement KO effectively and raise its profile. ˇ Joining us from the USA, Joseph Busch will share his extensive consultancy experience in applying classification principles both in-house and on the Web. ˇ “Using Knowledge Organization Systems requires proper tools to manage them” is the declaration of Johannes Keizer and Caterina Caracciolo from the FAO , where the AGRIS database has evolved to become a KOS-based Linked Open Data web application underpinned by VocBench, a state of the art editor for KOS enabling automatic alignment of vocabularies. There are many more speakers in the provisional programme at http://www.iskouk.org/content/knowledge-organization-making-difference, where you can also find details such as venue and registration fees. To make a booking you will need to go to https://www.conftool.net/iskouk2015/ and set up a user account.

We look forward to seeing you there
