A pre-conference to The 10th International Conference of International Society for Knowledge Organization: Culture and Identity in Knowledge Organization (5-8 August, 2008 @ Université de Montréal) [http://www.ebsi.umontreal.ca/isko2008/].
This event will explore the potential value for well-structured terminology systems to power a better Web experience. Invited experts will present briefings on widely-recognized vocabularies and also introduce an emerging W3C standard, SKOS (Simple Knowledge Organization Systems) which promises to be a important vehicle to help well-structured terminology systems unleash their value on the Web.
