NKOS 2019 Overview

NKOS is devoted to the discussion of the functional and data model for enabling knowledge organization systems/services (KOS), such as classification systems, thesauri, gazetteers, and ontologies, as networked interactive information services to support the description and retrieval of diverse information resources through the Internet. NKOS workshops have been held since 1997 in conjunction with related professional meetings in the U.S., Europe and Asia. The purpose of the workshops is to bring together KOS researchers and practitioners to share work on projects, good practices and innovations, and to discuss and critique this work. Workshops focus on topics including domain modeling, terminology development, validation, automated indexing, annotation and enrichment, and ethics.

The program for the 2019 Seoul Workshop will include:

Keynote Presentation:

. Jian Qin. “Paradigmatic Similarities in Knowledge Representation between AI and Ontological Systems”.

Submitted and reviewed presentations:

· Joseph Busch. “Developing a Health Policy Domain Model for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.”

· Marcia Zeng and Julaine Clunis. “Functional Metrics for Linked Open Data (LOD) KOS Products.”
