Themes for the 14th NKOS workshop will be:
1) KOS Alignment. KOS alignment or terminology mapping plays a vital role in
NKOS for many years and fits very well to the general theme "Connecting Digital
Collections" of TPDL 2015. This year we want to sort out the needs (use cases)
of KOS alignments in the new environment of Linked Open Data. We plan to
collect methodologies, best practices, guidelines and tools. This includes
manual and automatic alignments.
2) KOS Linked Open Data. Recent years have seen an increasing trend to
publication of KOS as Linked Data vocabularies. 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.
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
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
7) Users interaction with KOS in the online environment.
8) Quality issues in web-based KOS. Issues concerning large metadata sets.
9) KOS and (e)learning.
10) Multilingual and Interdisciplinary KOS applications and tools.
11) Specific domains, such as environmental, medical, new application contexts,
