Call for Presentations and Participation
4th European Networked Knowledge Organization Systems (NKOS) Workshop
ECDL2005 September 22 Vienna

Mapping Knowledge Organisation Systems: User-centred Strategies

An NKOS Workshop will take place on September 22nd, as part of ECDL 2005 in Vienna. Proposals are invited for presentations (20 minutes) on 
work or projects related to the themes of the workshop or to NKOS more generally. Presentations from the Workshop may be selected for 
consideration in a forthcoming (early 2006) NKOS special issue of the journal New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia.

Please email proposals (approx 500 words including aims, methods, main findings) by June 20 to Douglas Tudhope. Advance indication that you 
intend to submit would be helpful. Proposals will be peer-reviewed by the program committee and notification of acceptance will be given by 
July 15. After the workshop, copies of presentations will be made available on this website.
See attached pdf for full details or visit the workshop website:

The workshop aims to address key challenges for KOS posed by the overlapping themes of
  * User-centred design issues
  * Mapping between different KOS
  * KOS representations and service protocols

However other topics can also be proposed. See below for indicative list of topics and provisional schedule.

Main Contact: Douglas Tudhope,

Email: dstudhope at glam.ac.uk

Co-organiser: Marianne Lykke Nielsen,

Knowledge Organization Systems, such as classifications, gazetteers, lexical databases, ontologies, taxonomies and thesauri, attempt to 
model the underlying semantic structure of a domain for the purposes of retrieval. New networked KOS services and applications are emerging 
and we have the opportunity to draw on a number of technologies that can be combined to yield new solutions.

The workshop aims to address the following key themes:
  * User-centred design issues - User-centred design strategies for KOS. How to develop understandable and thorough descriptions of concepts 
and terms? How to show and explain relationships? The challenge is to find the appropriate level of explanation, clarity and conciseness.
  * Mapping between different KOS - How to achieve semantic interoperability? Cross-browsing and cross-searching between distributed KOS 
services. Mapping between terms, classes, systems and types of KOS. Innovative visualization methods to support KOS development and mapping.
  * KOS representations and service protocols - A basic infrastructure is needed to provide protocols for networked, programmatic access to 
a variety of vocabularies for different end users and applications. These require standard representations in formats such as RDF/XML. What 
is the appropriate granularity of base services to apply in evolving Web/Grid environments?

Other topics for presentations can also be proposed.
