Booking for July conference starts soon

Look out for the start of registration for the ISKO UK 2011 Conference which will open soon.

As well as invited papers, submissions are being reviewed and the programme will be finalised at the beginning of February. Booking starts from Feb 7th 2011.

We expect a diverse international programme of presentations and posters on knowledge organisation, with key themes of:
  • Classification, information retrieval
  • Semantics and the Web
  • Putting the user first
  • Evaluation and testing
  • Society, networking and collaboration
  • Models and structure
The conference will be at University College London, in central London and near the British Museum and the British Library.

Places are limited and this will doubtless be another lively and engaging event
