Linked data practices and techniques have opened new possibilities in exploiting
controlled vocabularies and improving resource discovery. Authority data held in
library systems, including classification schemes find new ways of expanding its
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 linkeddata
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
