Dear colleagues

ISKO UK's June 2014 event will be an all-day event with optional modules 
held during the morning. Entitled *Making metadata work*, it will be 
held on Monday 23rd June 2014 at the BCS London Office, 5 Southampton 
Street, London WC2E 7HA. You will find full details and a booking form 
at <_http://www.iskouk.org/events/metadata_June_2014.htm_>

This event will be a showcase for the latest developments in the 
evolution of the Semantic Web, exploitation of Knowledge Organization 
Systems (KOS), metadata annotation to aid workflow automation, 
information retrieval in networks of diverse media assets, Linked Data, 
and other opportunities for using metadata. It is a Joint Meeting of 
ISKO UK, IRSG (Information Retrieval Special Interest Group of BCS, the 
Chartered Institute for IT) and DCMI (Dublin Core Metadata Initiative). 
The day will be modular: attendance in the morning is optional, with a 
choice of workshop or tutorial, while the afternoon programme is for 
everyone.

*Morning options*
*a) Tutorial: Metadata management in Sharepoint*(10.00 -12.00)
While Sharepoint 2013 offers more metadata capabilities than ever 
before, the range of options can make it hard to implement the most 
effective way. Management of controlled vocabularies is a particular 
challenge. This tutorial will enable you to pick the brains of an 
experienced consultant, Marc Stephenson of Metataxis.

*b) Workshop: Vocabularies and the potential for linkage*(9.30 -- 12.30)
Various approaches to the linkage of value vocabularies (KOSs) and/or 
element set vocabularies (metadata schemas) will be described by 
Pierre-Yves Vandenbussche (Fujitsu, Ireland), Dan Brickley (Google), 
Gordon Dunsire and Stella Dextre Clarke, with emphasis on the 
opportunities as well as the barriers to widespread adoption. After that 
is a case study from Johan De Smedt and Agis Papantoniou, both of 
TenForce, that draws on more than one technique. The subsequent 
discussion will address the prospects for take-up, aiming to help 
participants with application or development of similar techniques and 
projects.

*Afternoon meeting*(Plenary, 14.00 -- 18.00)
Martin White: The importance of metadata for high quality Search
Sean Bechhofer: Wf4Ever: metadata for "Research Objects"
Mark Sandler: Semantic Media: a new paradigm for navigable content for 
the 21st century
Richard Ranft: Enhancing discovery of the British Library's audio 
collections
Antoine Isaac: A portrait of Europeana as a Linked Open Data case (in 
progress)
Andrew MacFarlane: Analysing creative image search queries to determine 
important facets

Followed by networking, wine and nibbles from 18.00.

*Registration fee and booking*
Full day, including lunch and a choice of tutorial or workshop: £120 (or 
£70 for members of ISKO, IRSG or DCMI and for full-time students);
Afternoon only: £60 (or £25 for members of ISKO, IRSG or DCMI and for 
full-time students).
Booking is open at <_http://www.iskouk.org/events/metadata_June_2014.htm_>

*About ISKO UK*
ISKO (International Society for Knowledge Organization) 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. Founded in 2007, our UK Chapter has been attracting lively 
and steadily growing audiences to its afternoon meeting series (see 
slides and recordings at _http://www.iskouk.org/events.htm_). Its third 
conference was held in July 2013 on the general theme of "Knowledge 
organization -- pushing the boundaries" _http://www.iskouk.org/conf2013/_.

*About BCS IRSG*
Established in 1978, the main aim of the BCS IRSG is supporting the 
communication between information retrieval (IR) researchers and 
practitioners, promoting the use of IR methods in industry and raising 
public awareness of IR-related topics. Recognizing IR as an 
interdisciplinary field, a further aim of the BCS IRSG is to act as a 
link between computer science, library and information science and also 
cognate communities (like natural language processing).

*About DCMI*
The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) is an open, international 
forum for the development of interoperable online metadata standards 
with diverse applications. DCMI's activities include consensus-driven 
working groups, global conferences and workshops, standards liaison, and 
educational efforts to promote widespread acceptance of metadata 
standards and practices. DCMI is a project of ASIS&T (the Association 
for Information Science and Technology).
*
*We shall all look forward to welcoming you on the day. To avoid 
disappointment, please don't delay in booking.
