Semantic Web Technologies

The December 2007 edition of this relatively new e-newsletter has recently been published. In November, I asked if ISKO UK members thought it worth monitoring. I am still undecided. It would be good to have your views.

Proceedings of the 17th ASIS&T SIG/CR Classification Research Workshop

In October Claudio Gnoli posted information about Proceedings of the 18th ASIS&T SIG/CR Classification Research Workshop being available online.
Last week, last year's workshop proceedings devoted to social tagging were also nicely 'wrapped up' and presented (on dLIST). It seems that Joe Tennis is doing an excellent job as the subject editor for classification and knowledge organization in this archive - but we are also grateful to all colleagues in ASIST SG who contributed to this excellent idea:
