This event is chaired by ISKO UK member Madi Solomon, and involves ISKO UK members Bob Bater and Silver Oliver. While the topic may seem unremarkable to us, it is the target audience which marks this out as an important event.
There are so many out there who have heard of ‘metadata’ and ‘taxonomy’ as vital KO concepts, but have no idea of the disciplines and techniques involved or the business benefit to be gained. Anything we can do to encourage conference organisers such as Henry Stewart to run events such as this must be to our benefit.
So, while you may think you already know the ‘essentials of metadata and taxonomy’, many of your colleagues may not. If you think they might benefit from such a conference, then please tell them about it and encourage them to attend.
NOTE that the Early Bird Conference Pass (available until 18 Feb. 2008) costs GBP349 but there is 10% discount for ISKO UK members. Further details are available at the conference web site.
I hope to see you there!
