Workshop Themes

  1. Research Data Management (RDM). NKOS welcomes presentations that focus on the knowledge organization issues related to controlled vocabularies, name authority, taxonomy, and other KOS to enable access to collections, e.g., in order to be able to replicate scientific results. What are the KOS requirements related to data storage and preservation ; and communication, coordination and collaboration to support librarian and researcher needs ?
  1. Aggregation. The objective of linked open data is to provide distributed access to vocabularies and content that uses vocabularies. Actually using vocabularies to aggregate distributed content is a special case that reconstructs collections that are now dispersed. Examples include Renaissance artist sketchbooks, natural history collections from enlightenment humanists, etc.
