    The 17th International ISKO Conference. 6 – 8 July 2022

    Aalborg (Denmark) and Online

    Knowledge Organization across Disciplines, Domains, Services, and Technologies

    We have received several inquiries regarding submission deadline extension. As this is the first time that the ISKO conference requires fully-developed papers for review, we have decided to extend the deadline for full papers, short papers, and posters to 05 January 2022.

    Deadlines for submissions are thus:

    Full papers, short papers, or posters for review: 05 January 2022.

    Notification for acceptance of full papers, short papers, and posters: 01 March 2022

    Round table discussions and workshop proposals: 15 February 2022.

    Notification for acceptance of round table discussions and workshop proposals: 01 March 2022

    Due to the continued uncertainty about COVID-19 travel restrictions, we have decided that the conference will be held both in person and online on 6-8 July 2022. All authors will have the opportunity to present their papers and posters, regardless of whether they attend in-person or online. The in-person location will be in Aalborg, Denmark.

    Online attendance details will be provided when the conference program is published. Some conference activities, for example highly interactive workshops, may only be available for in-person participants.

    “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!
