Theory, Technology and End Users

In my email, by Dr. Aida, from the UDC Consortium a la scientific mode:

International UDC Seminar 2017 marks the anniversaries of two conferences devoted to faceted classification research: sixty years since the First International Study Conference on Classification Research (Dorking, 1957) and twenty years since the the Sixth International Study Conference (London, 1997).

The objective of the conference is to revisit faceted analytical theory as a method for (re)constructing modern classifications and indexing languages and the role analytico-synthetic classifications have had in resource discovery and retrieval, from their introduction at the beginning of the 20th century to date. 

The conference will examine the challenges analytico-synthetic classifications represent for data modelling and interface design in the Web environment.

Most importantly, it will explore potential fields of application for faceted classifications in information organization, visualization and presentation of large datasets, social networks and in the open linked data environment.

High quality and innovative contributions are invited for the following topics:

  •  - The impact of faceted analytical theory and research on modern classification and indexing languages;
  •  - Data modelling, data management and data sharing of faceted and analytico-synthetic classifications; 
  • - Vocabulary mapping, semantic linking and natural language interfacing of analytico-synthetic systems; 
  • - Applications of faceted analytical theory on (re)constructing knowledge classifications and indexing languages; 
  • - End user interface design and user-friendly knowledge presentation for faceted systems; 
  • - Novel applications of faceted systems outside the bibliographic domain.

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. Best papers will be proposed for publishing in the Knowledge Organization journal


29 Jan 2017 Submission deadline 
1 Mar 2017 Notification of acceptance & paper submission instruction
15 May 2017 Papers submission (camera ready copy).

Hurry up, and bring there your pièce de résistance.!!

BTW:   I'm late, however. Won't be there. Thank you for letting be mycelf again, and for the kind invitation, doctor Aida.This, yours truly.
