Call for participation at Topic Maps 2008, Oslo April 2-4
Topic Maps is an ISO standard based on bibliographic principles like
collocation and subject-centric organization of knowledge.

An excellent way to find out more about what is going on in Topic Maps
- and how it relates to library science - is Topic Maps 2008, a
conference that takes place in the Oslo, Norway, one of the
of the Topic Maps community, on April 2-4 2008.

The conference has "Towards the Vision of Subject-centric computing"
its theme and it consists of a day of tutorials followed by two days
presentations, most of them case studies showing how Topic Maps is
applied around the world, in eGovernment, Knowledge Management,
technical documentation and libraries. This year the conference is
targeting librarians, library scientists and information architects in

particular, and there are plans for in-depth discussions of topics such

as the relationship between Topic Maps and Dublin Core, thesauri and
FRBR, and the role of Topic Maps in digital libraries.

There are some great keynote speakers lined up, including David
Weinberger, author of "Everything is miscellaneous", Alex Wright,
of "Glut: Mastering Information Through the Ages", and Steve Pepper,
author of "The TAO of Topic Maps".

For more information, see Registration opens in
January, and the full program will also be published then. In the
meantime, I encourage you to mark your calendars and start looking for
funding. This conference should not be missed!
