Metadata and Networked Knowledge Organization Systems, Special Session at DC-2005

Metadata and Networked Knowledge Organization Systems, Special Session at DC-2005

On Tuesday, September 13th, a special session at DC-2005 in Madrid will, over a three-hour period, deal with the practical applications of Networked Knowledge Organization Systems (NKOS) in the context of metadata, under the title: "Enhancing the Understanding of Meaning".

Please see the programme page for this event at:

Douglas Tudhope, University of Glamorgan, will reflect on the role of KOS and ontologies and the future evolution of protocols for programmatic access to thesauri, based on experience developing a pilot Web Service terminology browser with the SKOS API.

Rachel Heery, UKOLN, University of Bath, will talk about the content, usage and role of vocabulary registries and is presenting an overview of relevant initiatives.

Andy Powell, from the same institution, makes the case for persistent identifiers of concepts and terms and advises on current best practice regarding creation, application and registration of identifiers for terminology.

Eric Childress will introduce OCLC's activities with respect to identifiers in the context of the Dewey Decimal Classification.

The second part of the session begins with two case studies from the National Biological Information Infrastructure and the NASA Goddard Library, presented by Gail Hodge, Information International Associates.

This is the basis for a concluding Question & Answer session aimed at sharing the experience of the audience as well as reactions from a large group of experts in metadata and KOS.

The special session is part of DC-2005, International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications. To participate, please register with the conference at http://dc2005.uc3m.es/

I look forward to seeing you at this event,
