I thought you or some of your staff might be interested in this.  NKOS is an=
ad hoc working group with over 70 members from 10 countries who are=20
interested in the use of knowledge organization systems/sources such as=20
thesauri, ontologies, classification schemes, etc. to organization and acces=
information on the Internet and on intranets. -- Gail

The Networked Knowledge Organization Sources/Systems (NKOS) Working Group=20
announces its 4th Workshop in Association with the ACM/IEEE Joint Conference=
on Digital Libraries

Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center
Roanoke, VA
June 28, 2001

Mapping between/among classification schemes is beneficial within an=20
organization that has a number of implicit schemes, between organizations=20
seeking to exchange information, and in a digital library context where=20
collections are organized by different classifications.  This cross scheme=20
mapping could be done manually, but if many schemes are to be mapped, it may=
be desirable to provide automated tools and techniques to support the=20
process.  This workshop will present research and projects that identify the=
state-of-the-practice, describe working tools, and outline the research=20
agenda for integrating and interoperating classification schemes.
The primary aim of the workshop is to raise the awareness of work that is=20
being conducted in the area of classification mapping/integration and to=20
identify areas for future research.=20

The workshop's objectives are:=20
=B7 To provide a forum for researchers in knowledge organization=20
sources/systems (KOSs), including thesauri, classification schemes,=20
taxonomies, ontologies, etc., to share their views, experiences and plans.=20
=B7 To raise the awareness of the state of the art.=20
=B7 To identify a research agenda concerning classification integration and=20
mapping in digital library research.=20
=B7 To exploit potentially useful theories, methodologies, and technologies.=
=B7 To provide a network for researchers, implementers and other interested=20
parties to establish collaborative efforts.=20

Participants will also be encouraged to give short presentations on other=20
activities related to the use of KOSs in Internet and intranet environments.=
Reports by NKOS task groups working on a mark-up language for KOSs and a=20
metadata scheme for a KOS registry are also scheduled.

The preliminary program is available from the NKOS Web site at=20
http://nkos.slis.kent.edu.  Registration and hotel information is available=20
from www.jcdl.org.  The deadline for discounted registration is May 15. The=20
cost of the workshop is a maximum of $85 on or before May 15.  The cost afte=
May 15 is a maximum of $95. We would also encourage you to consider=20
attendance at the entire JCDL Meeting.
