- Subject: [InetBib] CFP: 17th European Networked Knowledge Organization Systems (NKOS) Workshop @TPDL2017
The 17th European Networked Knowledge Organization Systems (NKOS) workshop will
take place on Thursday 21st September 2017 as part of TPDL2017 Conference in
Call for Presentations and Demos
Submission deadline: Monday 19th June 2017
Notification of acceptance: Wednesday 19th July 2017
Camera-ready contributions: Friday 8th September 2017
Workshop: Thursday 21st September 2017
Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS), in the form of classification systems,
thesauri, lexical databases, ontologies, and taxonomies, play a crucial role in
digital information management and applications generally. Carrying semantics
in a well-controlled and documented way, Knowledge Organization Systems serve a
variety of important functions: tools for representation and indexing of
information and documents, knowledge-based support to information searchers,
semantic road maps to domains and disciplines, communication tool by providing
conceptual framework, and conceptual basis for knowledge based systems, e.g.
automated classification systems.
This is a full-day workshop of research projects and development related to
next-generation Networked Knowledge Organization Systems/Services (NKOS) in
digital libraries. It is a continuation of the well-attended NKOS workshops at
previous ECDL, TPDL, JCDL conferences.
We invite submissions for:
a) Presentations (typically 20 minutes plus discussion time, potentially longer
if warranted) on work related to the themes of the workshop (see below). An
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).
We especially invite descriptions of running projects and ongoing work. Papers
that investigate multiple themes directly are especially welcome.
The proposed workshop will have three themes as the main focus, together with
topical presentations arising from the workshop call for presentations.
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) KOS and Document Retrieval. Documents or parts of documents are nowadays not
only accessible via their metadata but their abstracts and in many cases the
full texts are electronically available. Thus, these documents also can be
found by search engines. Given this possibility of full text search the role of
classification and annotation has to be redefined. Questions like the following
ones arise: can traditional knowledge organization and document annotation
improve full text retrieval? Are classification, categorization, annotation,
tagging, and full text retrieval complementary, or how can they be made
complementary? What should be the focus of annotation, if full text retrieval
Further timely presentations/demonstrations will be selected from the following
topics in the call for papers:
- KOS-based recommender systems. The suggestion of the right meaningful
concepts is a mission critical phase for searchers in modern DL.
- Observatory for Knowledge Organization Systems - following the recent
Knowescape workshop with its main topics KOS provenance and versioning.
- Meaningful Concept Display and Meaningful Visualization of KOS.
- Standards developments.
- Evaluation of KOS-based systems - methods and practical experience.
KOS applications are a regular and important part of NKOS workshops. Example
- KOS in e-Research metadata contexts - intersection between research data,
KOS, Semantic web.
- Social tagging. What is the role of social tagging and informal knowledge
structures versus established KOS? (How) can tagging be guided and informed by
- Users interaction with KOS in the online environment.
- 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
- Multilingual and Interdisciplinary KOS applications and tools.
- Specific domains, such as environmental, medical, new application contexts,
All submissions must be written in English following Springer LNCS author
guidelines. Regular papers should have a maximum of 12 pages. Short papers
(incl. extended abstracts) should have a maximum of 6 pages. Both should be
submitted as PDF files to EasyChair. All submissions will be reviewed by at
least two independent reviewers. Please be aware of the fact that at least one
author per paper needs to register for the workshop and attend the workshop to
present the work. In case of no-show the paper (even if accepted) will be
deleted from the proceedings AND from the program.
Workshop proceedings will be deposited online in the CEUR workshop proceedings
publication service (ISSN 1613-0073) - This way the proceedings will be
permanently available and citable (digital persistent identifiers and long term
See the proceedings of the 15th European Networked Knowledge Organization
After the workshop, copies of presentations will be made available on the
workshop website. Presentations from the workshop may be encouraged to be
submitted as extended papers for peer reviewed journal publication.
