Announcement: Classification & Ontology: International UDC Seminar 2011

Classification & Ontology
Classification & Ontology:
Formal Approaches and Access to Knowledge

The Hague, 19-20 September 2011

Following the success of the 2009 conference we are very pleased to announce the next in the series of biennial conferences devoted to the advancement of bibliographic classification research, organized by the UDC Consortium and hosted by Koninklijke Bibliotheek.

The difference between bibliographic knowledge classification schemes and ontologies resides in their particular purpose and levels of formality. However, they are both based on observation and reasoning and share some structural principles and elements: categories, concepts, properties, class relationships, roles.

The objective of this conference is to promote collaboration and exchange of expertise between different fields dealing with knowledge classifications: bibliographic, web and AI. We hope to learn more about methods in ontology modelling and whether these may be used to improve and formalise data models of bibliographic classifications and enhance their value in information discovery.

Papers are now invited covering the following topics:
  1. Modelling and representation of knowledge classifications
  2. Standards and solutions for innovative and high-quality classification data processing
  3. Applications and implementations of classification structures as ontologies
  4. Theoretical considerations of the role of knowledge classifications
The proposals should be of interest to academic and research communities dealing with conceptual modelling, information systems design, knowledge organization, knowledge engineering, semantic interoperability & information integration, and natural-language processing.

To read more about the invited topics and to submit contribution go to the conference website.

Paper proposal submission deadline: 30 January 2011.
