    Workshop with David Haynes

    Have you ever worried about the risks of the web? This workshop is an opportunity to help develop ideas about risk which will be represented in an ontology of risk. The workshop includes a briefing on ontologies and the way in which they work. You will be contributing to a topical piece of research. 

    This workshop is the first Knowledge Organisation Meetup of 2019. It will take place at the Canada Water Culture Space, just next to the Canada Water tube station on the Jubilee line.

    Entrance is free of charge but places are limited and to avoid disappointment we recommend that you register as soon as possible.

      The Human Position in an Artificial World

       Creativity, ethics and AI in knowledge organization

    This conference explores the connected themes of artificial intelligence and its role in knowledge organization, ethics and creativity. What innovations are taking place and what role do humans play in all of this? The conference will consider practical solutions as well as the theory behind the creation, development and delivery of knowledge organizing systems, including: controlled vocabularies, classification systems, metadata schemas, ontologies and taxonomies.

    This will be the 6th biennial conference of the UK Chapter of ISKO (International Society for Knowledge Organization). Thanks to collaboration from the organizers of the popular IKO (Innovations in Knowledge Organization) series, the event will include a Knowledge Café to enable in-depth exploration of innovative knowledge organization practices and applications in a case study format. Relevant contributions are invited, either to the main conference programme or to the Knowledge Café case studies, or both.

    Go to the main conference page for more details of the event, including the Call for Papers. Proposed presentations to the conference should be submitted to the organizers using a separate interface with Conftool, where you will be asked to set up a password-protected account.
