The 13th European NKOS workshop will take place on the afternoon of Thursday Sept 11th and  morning  of Friday 12th. as part of JDL 2014 (joint JCDL/TPDL conferences) in London.

Important Dates:
Submission deadline: Monday 23 June 2014
Notification of acceptance: Monday 14 July 2014

Proposals are invited for the following:

a) Presentations (typically 20 minutes plus discussion time, potentially longer if warranted) on work related to the themes of the workshop (see below). An option for a short 5 minute project report presentation is also possible.

b) Demos on work related to the themes of the workshop (see below).

Please email proposals (maximum 1000 words for presentations and 500 words for demos, including aims, methods, main findings and underlying work, relevance to themes of workshop) to Douglas Tudhope (douglas.tudhope at Proposals will be peer-reviewed by the program committee. At least one presentation author needs to register for the workshop by Monday 4 August (this is a strict requirement).

After the workshop, copies of presentations will be made available on the workshop website. Presentations from the workshop may be encouraged to be submitted as extended papers for peer reviewed journal publication.

Themes for the 13th NKOS workshop will be:
1) Mapping between Linked Data vocabularies.
This last year has seen a major growth in Linked Data publication of KOS. How can we encourage and support quality linking between this vocabularies.
How should these mappings be described in metadata? What methods are appropriate for creating mappings? We need discussion of practical initiatives to link between congruent vocabularies and provide effective web services and APIs so that applications can build upon them.

2) Meaningful Concept Display and Meaningful Visualization of KOS. Visualization has been an
important application domain for KOS and often a driver for KOS use in Digital Libraries.

3) Applications of KOS systems in relation to 'Big data' - natural language processing and semantic analysis of content pose huge challenges.

Further presentations/demonstrations will be selected from current KOS applications, including:
4) KOS-based recommender systems for suggestion of meaningful concepts.
5) KOS in e-Research metadata contexts - intersection between research data, KOS, Semantic web.
6) Social tagging. What is the role of social tagging and informal knowledge structures versus
established KOS?
7) Users interaction with KOS in the online environment.
8) Quality issues in web-based KOS. Issues concerning large metadata sets. Version management.
9) KOS and (e)learning.
10) Multilingual and Interdisciplinary KOS applications and tools.
11) Specific domains, such as environmental, medical, new application contexts, etc

Join us in Fort Collins, for the
14th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2014),

September 16-19 2014,
at Hewlett-Packard in Fort Collins, near Denver, Colorado, USA

Documents are communication artifacts in any form and in any media; they can be simple or compound, static or time-varying, private or open. Document collections increasingly underpin research, education, commerce, entertainment – the full range of human activity. Document engineering covers both the innovative use of documents and document collections in real-world applications and the study of principles, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage, maintain, share, and productively use these.

You are invited to submit original papers to the 14th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2014), to be held at the Hewlett-Packard site in Fort Collins, Colorado, USA. Attendees at this international forum have interests that span all aspects of document engineering and applications. DocEng is sponsored by ACM by means of the ACM SIGWEB Special Interest Group. Proceedings are available through the ACM Digital Library.
