Themes for the 13th NKOS workshop will be:
1) Mapping between Linked Data vocabularies.
This last year has seen a major growth in Linked Data publication of KOS. How 
can we encourage and support quality linking between this vocabularies.
How should these mappings be described in metadata? What methods are 
appropriate for creating mappings? We need discussion of practical initiatives 
to link between congruent vocabularies and provide effective web services and 
APIs so that applications can build upon them.

2) Meaningful Concept Display and Meaningful Visualization of KOS. 
Visualization has been an
important application domain for KOS and often a driver for KOS use in Digital 

3) Applications of KOS systems in relation to 'Big data' - natural language 
processing and semantic analysis of content pose huge challenges.

Further presentations/demonstrations will be selected from current KOS 
applications, including:
4) KOS-based recommender systems for suggestion of meaningful concepts.
5) KOS in e-Research metadata contexts - intersection between research data, 
KOS, Semantic web.
6) Social tagging. What is the role of social tagging and informal knowledge 
structures versus
established KOS?
7) Users interaction with KOS in the online environment.
8) Quality issues in web-based KOS. Issues concerning large metadata sets. 
Version management.
9) KOS and (e)learning.
10) Multilingual and Interdisciplinary KOS applications and tools.
11) Specific domains, such as environmental, medical, new application contexts,
