    “Knowledge Organization across Disciplines, Domains, Services, and Technologies "

    The 17th international ISKO Conference, will be held in Aalborg, Denmark from 6-8 July 2022.

    This ISKO conference explores how knowledge organization can both draw upon and inform diverse disciplines and technological developments. It will also explore how best to combine theory and practice. The conference will consider practical solutions as well as the theory behind the design, development and implementation of knowledge organizing systems, ranging from controlled vocabularies, classification systems, metadata schemas through to ontologies and taxonomies.

    We welcome proposals for full papers, short papers, posters, round table discussions, and workshops. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

    We look forward to your contribution!

    With sadness we report the sudden death of Liz Marley on 14 April 2021, at the age of 53. She was a member of the Indexing and Data Management team at the House of Commons Library and she became its first ever Thesaurus Editor.

    Among other commitments, she was a member of the Executive Committee of ISKO UK from 2015 to 2017 and a member of Taxonomies in the Public Sector (TiPS). Liz was a familiar face at Taxonomy Boot Camp London and ISKO UK conferences bringing common sense and a practical approach to the organisational side of the events, as well as humour and interesting conversations in the coffee breaks and social evenings.

    She was generous with her time, often helping fellow taxonomists at the weekends for fun, in spite of her frequent travels to Morocco to advise the Moroccan Parliament on developing their information services.

    We, at ISKO UK, wish to express our sincere condolences to Liz's family and friends.
