16th European Networked Knowledge Organization Systems (NKOS) Workshop

15 octobre 2016 - Copenhague, Danemark

Publié le 18 mai 2016, par Thérèse Hameau

The 16th European Networked Knowledge Organization Systems (NKOS) workshop will take place on Saturday 15th October as part of DC 2016 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Themes for the 16th NKOS workshop will be :

  • KOS Alignment. KOS alignment or terminology mapping plays a vital role in NKOS for many years. This year we want to sort out the needs (use cases) of KOS alignments in the new environment of Linked Open Data. We plan to collect methodologies, best practices, guidelines and tools. This includes manual and automatic alignments.
  • KOS Linked Open Data. Recent years have seen an increasing trend to publication of KOS as Linked Data vocabularies. We need discussion of practical initiatives to link between congruent vocabularies and provide effective web services and APIs so that applications can build upon them.
  • Subject metadata for research data. With increasing recognition of the need to manage research data as part of universities research output, subject metadata represent particular challenges that need to be addressed from theoretical as well as practical perspectives. We plan to discuss existing issues, especially in terms of interoperability across disciplines as well as applications, and strive towards establishment of best practices and guidelines.


  • KOS in e-Research metadata contexts - intersection between research data, KOS, Semantic web.
