option for a short 5 minute project report presentation is also possible.
b) Demos on work related to the themes of the workshop (see below).
Please email proposals (maximum 1000 words for presentations and 500 words for

Themes for the 16th NKOS workshop will be:
(1) KOS Alignment. KOS alignment or terminology mapping plays a vital role in
NKOS for many years. 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
(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) Subject metadata for research data. With increasing recognition of the need
to manage research data as part of universities research output, subject
metadata represent particular challenges that need to be addressed from
theoretical as well as practical perspectives. We plan to discuss existing
issues, especially in terms of interoperability across disciplines as well as
applications, and strive towards establishment of best practices and guidelines.
Further timely presentations/demonstrations will be selected from the following
topics in the CfP:
(4) KOS-based recommender systems. The suggestion of the right meaningful
concepts is a mission critical phase for searchers in modern DL.
(5) Meaningful Concept Display and Meaningful Visualization of KOS.
(6) Standards developments.
(7) Evaluation of KOS-based systems – methods and practical experience.
KOS applications are a regular and important part of NKOS workshops. Example
(8) KOS in e-Research metadata contexts - intersection between research data,
KOS, Semantic web.
(9) Social tagging. What is the role of social tagging and informal knowledge
structures versus established KOS? (How) can tagging be guided and informed by
(10) Users interaction with KOS in the online environment.
(11) KOS and learning. What is required to use KOS effectively to convey
meaning, to assist users to express their information needs to assist in sense
making and learning?
(12) Multilingual and Interdisciplinary KOS applications and tools.
(13) Specific domains, such as environmental, medical, new application
