August 18, 2010 – This International Society for Knowledge Organization (ISKO) UK one-day conference examines how this linking can be done using Semantic Web technologies like URIs, RDF and SKOS, and how real-world examples of inked data in action are here, now, and growing.

The conference is titled Linked Data: the future of knowledge organization on the web and examines the use of Semantic Web technologies in supporting the meaningful linking of distributed, heterogeneous and previously unconnected web resources.

The program comprises nine presentations that will provide an overview of different aspects of this extremely important development. Talks will contain an abundance of illustrations and examples of the new technology in action and will give insights into the development of the web of linked data. The speakers include Nigel Shadbolt, Antoine Isaac, Richard Wallis, Steve Dale, Martin Hepp, Andy Powell, John Goodwin, Andreas Blumauer and Bernard Vatant.

Scheduled for September 14, 2010 in London, this conference offers an opportunity for all information professionals to catch up with where linked data is now, where it is going, and why we need to know about it.
