The provisional programme for ISKO-UK's
September conference "Knowledge Organisation: what's the
story?" is now available. The conference will be taking
place in the fantastic Canada
Water Library and Cultural Space in the heart of
London's docklands on 11-12 September 2017.
One of the highlights of the conference will be the second day's "False Narratives" session, aiming to develop a KO response to post-truth phenomena such as Fake news, Alternative facts, Social media echo chambers and other worrying developments. Not everyone is worried, though. According to some analyses, fake news may not have had much impact on events such as the 2016 US presidential election. Should we worry more about the home-grown bias of personalized feeds from our web browsers?
Enlightenment on the technical issues, and energy to
pursue solutions, will come from our first two speakers
in this special session on 12 September:
