Notification of acceptance: Monday 14th July 2014

Proposals are invited for the following:

a) Presentations (typically 20 minutes plus discussion time, potentially longer 
if warranted) on work related to the themes of the workshop (see below). An 
option for a short 5 minute project report presentation is also possible.

b) Demos on work related to the themes of the workshop (see below).

Please email proposals (maximum 1000 words for presentations and 500 words for 
demos, including aims, methods, main findings and underlying work, relevance to 
themes of workshop) to Douglas Tudhope (douglas.tudhope@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx). 
Proposals will be peer-reviewed by the program committee. At least one 
presentation author needs to register for the workshop by Monday 4th August 
(this is a strict requirement).

Themes for the 13th NKOS workshop will be:
1) Mapping between Linked Data vocabularies.
This last year has seen a major growth in Linked Data publication of KOS. How 
can we encourage and support quality linking between this vocabularies. How 
should these mappings be described in metadata? What methods are appropriate 
for creating mappings? 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.

2) Meaningful Concept Display and Meaningful Visualization of KOS. 
Visualization has been an important application domain for KOS and often a 
driver for KOS use in Digital Libraries. Reports of innovative demonstrators, 
implementation issues and evaluation studies with users are welcome.

3) Applications of KOS systems in relation to 'Big data' as natural language 
processing and semantic analysis of content pose huge challenges. The workshop 
can provide a venue for researchers of both big data and KOS to exchange ideas.

Further timely presentations/demonstrations will be selected from the following 
topics in the CfP:

KOS applications are a regular and important part of NKOS workshops. Example 
topics include:

4) KOS-based recommender systems for suggestion of meaningful concepts.

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

6) Social tagging. What is the role of social tagging and informal knowledge 
structures versus established KOS?

7) Users interaction with KOS in the online environment.

8) Quality issues in web-based KOS. 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 sense making 
and learning?

10) Multilingual and Interdisciplinary KOS applications and tools.

11) Specific domains, such as environmental, medical, new application contexts, 

In the name of all organizers.

Best regards,
Philipp Mayr
