>                                               6TH ANNUAL WORKSHOP
>       BUILDING A MEANINGFUL WEB: FROM TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE 
> ORGANIZATION
> SYSTEMS TO NEW SEMANTIC TOOLS
> 
> 
> The Networked Knowledge Organization Systems/Sources (NKOS) Ad Hoc
> Working Group (http://nkos.slis.kent.edu) will hold its 6th annual
> workshop at the Alice Pratt Brown Hall of Rice University in 
> Houston, TX
> on May 31 in conjunction with the Joint Conference on Digital 
> Libraries
> (www.jcdl.org).
> 
> This year's workshop, "Building a Meaningful Web", will focus on the
> transformation of traditional controlled vocabulary 
> approaches, such as
> authority lists and thesauri, to new forms of knowledge 
> representation,
> such as ontologies, topic maps, and semantic web components, where
> relationships between concepts are richer and more extensive and the
> requirements of computer processing are met.  The session will include
> discussion of the contribution of best practices from more traditional
> approaches to the design of new knowledge organization systems.
> 
> The goal is to bring these often disparate communities 
> together so that
> the newer efforts of KOS development can take advantage of the best
> practices of more traditional systems and the standards for 
> traditional
> KOS structures can benefit from the technological advances being
> developed to support improved semantic access to web content.  Topics
> include:
> 
> * Best practices of traditional KOS systems and their application to
> newer semantic forms (ontologies, topic maps, etc.)
> * Relevant standards and their status
> * Methodologies for transforming legacy KOSs into newer semantic forms
> * Development of web services to support the use of KOSs in web-based
> digital libraries
> * Updates on current NKOS projects and applications and related NISO
> standards activities
> 
> The format will consist of invited and volunteered short presentations
> and plenty of discussion.  In addition, participants will be given the
> opportunity to introduce their work and their interests briefly during
> the workshop introduction.
> 
> More detail about the program is available at the NKOS web site at
> http://nkos.slis.kent.edu.
> 
> Registration is available from the JCDL web site 
> (www.jcdl.org).  Early
> registration ends on April 25.  Discounts are available for IEEE, ACM
> and
> ASIST members.
