The UK Chapter of the International Society for Knowledge Organisation

1st ISKO UK Biennial  Conference

Content Architecture - Exploiting and Managing Diverse Resources

University College London, 22–23 June 2009


In our networked world, enabling easy access to multiple services and resources is often reliant on a team effort involving specialists from website design, knowledge engineering, audio and video engineering, linguistics, computer science, etc. This Conference aims to bring together people from all the diverse specialisms that contribute to integrated information systems and services. This first biennial Conference of the British Chapter of the International Society for Knowledge Organization is organized in cooperation with the Department of Information Studies, University College London. Among the highlights are keynote addresses from Clifford Lynch, Director of the Coalition for Networked Information, and Professor David Crystal, the renowned author, linguist and broadcaster.
