Jan 20th Joseph Busch of Taxonomy Strategies will be in Singapore, to share how he helped to build the NASA faceted taxonomy - a classic example of how to build a taxonomy for a complex organisation with multiple audiences. Spaces are filling up, so do register soon if you want a place. http://www.iskosg.org/NASA_Taxonomy.html
February 24th Patrick Lambe and Maish Nichani will present a talk on "Behind the Black Box of Search: Risk Findability and Discovery" - this is a talk originally developed for the Federal Reserve Board in Washington DC, and it shows how taxonomy and knowledge organisation strategies can help to mitigate organisational (and social) risks. http://www.iskosg.org/behind_black_box_search.html
March 24th we will hold a half day workshop with an expert panel on "Governance for Knowledge Organisation" - more details to follow later in January.
April 21st Marianne Winslett of the University of Illinois and Zhenjie Zhang of the Advanced Digital Sciences Center will present a case study on using data analytics to build an app for passengers on "Predicting crowds in the Shanghai metro" - we will follow this with a discussion on the applicability of this approach to other domains. http://www.iskosg.org/predicting_crowds.html
