I am writing to promise you an exciting opportunity to share ideas and advances in the field of knowledge organization, enjoying all the momentum of a location that so inspired the 2016 Olympics. On our website you'll now find our programme, offering three very busy days of presentations. Objectives of the conference include:
- to discuss the challenges and perspectives in knowledge organization in relation to cultural diversity
- to verify the state of the art of international research in knowledge organization
- to identify different perspectives of scientific dialog in the international environment of knowledge organization
- to advance discussions on the current epistemological construction, interdisciplinary dialog, technological applications and the social dimension of knowledge organization
- to provide international visibility for KO research.
This conference will be a first-class opportunity to bring yourself up to date with the latest thinking, and network with your peers from all over the world. Don't miss it!
