Linked data practices and techniques have opened new possibilities in 
controlled vocabularies and improving resource discovery. Authority data held 
library systems, including classification schemes find new ways of expanding 
potential as shared knowledge structures across the linked data environment. 
The objective of this conference is to explore such a potential, expanding the 
value and use of classification as authority controlled vocabulary, from the 
local perspective to the global environment. 

We invite experts in authority control, classification schemes and linked data 
to provide overviews, illustrations and analysis of classification data 
management and exploitation. Contributions are welcome on high quality, 
innovative research and practice on the following topics: 

•    Classification as a component of subject authority control 
•    Classification authority data formats and modeling 
•    Classification and multilingual subject access 
•    Sharing classification data from authority files 
•    Classification data in the open linked data context 


Two kinds of contributions are invited: conference papers and posters. Authors 
should submit a paper proposal in the form of an extended abstract (1000-1200 
words, including references, for papers; and 500-600 words for posters). The 
submission form is provided on the conference website. 

Proposals will be reviewed by the Programme Committee consisting of an 
international panel of experts. Each submission will undergo a blind review by 
at least three reviewers. 
The Conference proceedings will be published by Ergon Verlag and will be 
distributed at the conference. 

    28 February 2015    Paper proposal submission deadline 
    23 March 2015    Notification of acceptance & paper submission instructions
