has been an important application domain for KOS and often a driver for KOS 
standards. KOS specific issues within the Europeana range of projects are also 
relevant here.

2) Linked data applications of KOS and LOV (Linking and Opening Vocabularies). 
We are seeing the recognition that the different types of KOS can act as hubs 
within linked data networks. Reports of practical experience are particularly 

Further timely presentations/demonstrations could be selected from the 
following topics:

3) Management and integration of multiple vocabulary types, such as 
classification systems, thesauri, terminologies, synonym rings etc. Typologies 
and spectra of KOS. KOS Registries.

mapping and vocabulary integration, additional KOS types and other actual 

KOS applications are a regular and important part of NKOS workshops. Example 
topics include:
5) KOS in e-Research metadata contexts. The intersection between research data, 
KOS and Semantic web.
6) Social tagging. What is the role of social tagging and informal knowledge 
structures versus established KOS? (How) can tagging be guided and informed by 
KOS? The possible contribution of social tagging and informal knowledge 
structures to constructing  / augmenting established KOS. Implications for 
social search.
7) Users interaction with KOS in the online environment, visualisation issues.
8) Quality issues in web-based KOS. How to identify and detect shortcomings in 
data quality and what to do to improve KOS on the web?  Issues concerning large 
metadata sets. Version management.
9) KOS and learning. What is required to use KOS effectively to convey meaning, 
to assist users to express their information needs to assist in sensemaking and 
10) Multilingual and Interdisciplinary KOS applications and tools.

Other NKOS topics can also be proposed. For inspiration, please visit the NKOS
