[InetBib] Announcement: Classification & Ontology, The Hague 19-20 September 2011


Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren

Dear colleagues



Classification &  Ontology - Formal Approaches and Access to Knowledge 
International UDC Seminar 2011

VENUE:     The Hague, National Library of the Netherlands (Koninklijke 

DATE:         19-20 September 2011

WEBSITE: http://seminar.udcc.org/2011/

CONTACT: seminar2011@xxxxxxxx<mailto:seminar2011@xxxxxxxx>

The difference between bibliographic knowledge classifications and ontologies 
resides in their particular purpose/function, and levels of formality. However, 
they are both based on observation and reasoning (ontological analysis) and 
share some structural principles and elements. In principle, automatic 
processing of knowledge classifications is significant whenever there is a need 
to support intuitive services. For instance, ontology-like representations of 
classifications are recognized as potentially important facilitators in 
creating a web of linked data (the semantic web).

The objective of this conference is to promote collaboration and exchange of 
expertise between the bibliographic, the semantic web and the AI domains. We 
hope to learn more about methods in ontology modelling and whether these may be 
used to improve and formalise the 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. Read more and download the full 
text of the CFP at the conference website http://seminar.udcc.org/2011/.

Contributions may include conference papers and posters. Authors should submit 
a proposal in the form of an extended abstract (1000-1200 words including 
references, for papers, and 500-600 words for posters). To submit proposal 
online go to the conference website.

Conference proceedings will be published by Ergon Verlag and will be 
distributed at the conference.

ORGANIZER: Classification&  Ontology is the third biennial conference in a 
series of UDC Seminars organized by the Universal Decimal Classification 
Consortium (UDC Consortium) and hosted by Koninklijke Bibliotheek (The National 
Library of Netherlands). UDCC is a not-for-profit organization, based in The 
Hague, established to maintain and distribute the UDC and to support its use 
and development. UDC is one of the most widely used knowledge organization 
systems in the bibliographic domain.
