Dear Colleagues

Just three weeks to go before the ISKO-UK seminar on Classification and
places are filling up fast, so don’t forget to register while there is
still chance. This will be a great opportunity to compare notes with
colleagues, as well as refreshing your own ideas.

Classification is central to organizing information for our users, and we
have secured an array of first-class speakers. The aim is to help us
individually and collectively review our approaches to the subject. In the
breaks there will be demonstrations from vendors of software designed to
handle classification automatically.

After the main presentations (see the latest programme
athttp://www.iskouk.org/events/classification_july2012.htm ) there will
be four breakout sessions, giving everyone the opportunity to
participate in the evolution of ideas. The topics for the breakout
sessions will be finalised based on chosen preferences at the time of
registration. If you have thoughts on this, please enter them into the
comments box when you register.

The event is organized jointly between ISKO UK and the Information
Retrieval Specialist Group (IRSG) of the British Computer Society.
The event fee (which includes lunch and refreshments) is 25 pounds to
ISKO and BCS members and to full-time students and just 60 pounds for
non-members, payable in advance. To reserve a place and see more
details, please go
tohttp://www.iskouk.org/events/classification_july2012.htm . The venue
is the London office of the British Computer
Society<http://www.bcs.org/upload/pdf/london-office-guide.pdf>, 5
Southampton Street, London, WC2E 7HA .

Stella Dextre Clarke

ISKO is a not-for-profit scientific/professional association with the
objective of promoting research and communication in the domain of
knowledge organization, within the broad field of information science
and related disciplines. Our UK emphasis is to build bridges between the
research and practitioner communities, with the UK Chapter attracting
lively and steadily growing audiences to its afternoon meetings. You can
see past and future events at<http://www.iskouk.org/events.htm>, most

BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, champions the global IT profession
and the interests of individuals engaged in that profession for the
benefit of all. Among its many specialist groups is the Information
Retrieval SG, whose aims include supporting communication between
researchers and practitioners, promoting the use of information
retrieval methods in industry and raising public awareness.
