Call for Presentations and Demos
An NKOS Workshop will take place as part of DC 2020 at Carlton University in Ottawa September 14 to 17. This proposal builds on the well-attended NKOS workshops at previous ICADL, ECDL, TPDL, JCDL, and Dublin Core DCMI conferences (please see NKOS website for details).
Submission deadline: Friday, May 29, 2020
Notification of acceptance: Friday, June 26, 2020
Proposals are invited for the following:
a) Presentations. Typically, 20 minutes plus discussion time, potentially longer if warranted, on work related to the themes of the workshop (see below). There is also an option for a short 5-minute Project Report Presentation.
b) Demos. Demonstration on work related to the themes of the workshop (see below)
Please email proposals (maximum 1000 words for Presentations and 500 words for Demos and Project Reports, including aims, methods, main findings and underlying work, relevance to themes of workshop) to Joseph Busch (firstname.lastname@example.org). Proposals will be peer-reviewed by the program committee. At least one presentation author needs to register for the workshop (this is a strict requirement).
After the workshop, copies of both proposals and presentations will be made available on the workshop website as well as be subject to the DCMI copyright provisions. Presentations from the workshop may be encouraged to be submitted as extended papers for a peer reviewed journal publication. Selected papers will be scheduled for a special issue of Knowledge Organization.
A selection of 2019 papers are being published as a special NKOS issue of JDIS (http://manu47.magtech.com.cn/Jwk3_jdis/EN/2096-157X/home.shtml)
Themes for the NKOS Workshop
Themes for the NKOS Workshop
- Domain Modeling. Modeling of pertinent real-world concepts needed in a KOS such as people, organizations, locations, events, products, services, content, etc.
- Terminology Development and Mapping. Encoding concepts and relationships as the basis for reasoning rules, for example to enable language and concept switching, linked data, and multilingual retrieval.
- Validation. Using quantitative and qualitative methods to demonstrate KOS usability and usefulness.
- Governance. Enabling KOS change management in simple and complex distributed environments.
- Automated Indexing. Using and evaluating KOS-based indexing, classification, entity-extraction, clustering, and other information retrieval methods.
- Annotation and Enrichment. Utilizing KOS to annotate and enrich different types of content collections and communities, e.g., metadata innovation.
- Terminology Services. Finding a ‘hub’ to retrieve the contents of a KOS and the connections among the concepts (beyond the whole vocabulary-type of registries), as well as the operational sustainability and quality of terminology services.
- Ethics. Unintended consequences of establishing and promulgating culture-bound KOS as standards for organizing and accessing content collections.

NKOS (Networked Knowledge Organization Systems) is an ad hoc work group of more than 300 international experts and implementers of knowledge organization systems. NKOS is devoted to 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.
