If you are interested in learning more about semantic search and how it can improve your work, here is an opportunity for a free workshop to do just that. This workshop is brought to you in a joint effort by NKOS (Networked Knowledge Organization Systems) and CENDI, an interagency working group of senior scientific and technical information managers from 13 U.S. federal agencies.

If you have wondered how semantic search technologies can be evaluated or what the future holds, these questions and more will be addressed by experts in the field. Those experts include Dean Allemang, Chief Technology Officer and Chief Data Scientist at Open Data Registry (previously of TopQuadrant); Dr. Denise Bedford, Goodyear Professor of Knowledge Management at Kent State University; and Joel Richard, Smithsonian Institution. These and others will address such topics as linked data applications in libraries, museums and archives; the impact of semantic search on visualization tools; and the development of tools to support semantic search in particular communities.

Registration is open until November 26, 2012. Click here to view the entire program and register.
