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. For full details 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.

Background 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

Other topics for presentations can also be proposed.
