The 17th International ISKO Conference

6. – 8. JULY 2022, Aalborg (Denmark)

Theme: Knowledge Organization Across Disciplines, Domains, Services and Technologies.

The ISKO 2022 conference will take place at Aalborg University, Department of Communication and Psychology.

The conference explores how knowledge organization can both draw upon and inform diverse disciplines and technological developments. It will also explore how best to combine theory and practice. The conference will consider practical solutions as well as the theory behind the design, development and implementation of knowledge organizing systems, ranging from controlled vocabularies, classification systems, metadata schemas through to ontologies and taxonomies. 

Topics include:

  • Knowledge organization across domains, media and technologies
  • Connections of Knowledge Organization to cognate fields such as museology, artificial intelligence, and philosophy
  • Knowledge organization as a driver for development and change 

We welcome proposals for full papers, short papers, posters, round table discussions, and workshops. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

We look forward to welcoming the KO community to Aalborg, Denmark.
