JCDL-NKOS Workshop 2005- –

今年 IEEE 和 ACM 联合的 JCDL 将于 6 月中旬在丹佛召开, NKOS 又有一个 Joint Session 。值得一提的是曾蕾和秦健是这个组织的核心成员。下面是他们的工作组计划,也是一个 Announcement ,可以看看今年的动向是什么。

Integration Challenges and Strategies

ABSTRACT

This year's Networked Knowledge Organization Systems (NKOS) workshop builds on seven years of workshops in the U.S. and Europe on issues enabling networked knowledge organization systems (KOS), such as classification systems, thesauri, gazetteers, taxonomies, and ontologies, to support the description, retrieval, and use of diverse information resources. Now many efforts are underway to research the issues and implement solutions to the challenges of networking and integrating KOS somewhat isolated domains: indexing services and thesaurus builders; computer scientists and system integrators; ontologists; taxonomists; and others. Requirements to solve these integration issues have become mission critical in many cases; the need to support computational, programmatic integration to handle masses of data from independent sources is pushing the research and development agenda. The need to move forward to meet these challenges while at the same time applying the best practices and “wisdom” developed through years of practical experience is acute.

The JCDL-NKOS workshop for 2005 will bring together researchers and implementers from diverse international communities who are developing new models, conducting research, and implementing practical solutions for networking KOS and integrating the associated information and data resources.

Topics may include:

Keywords

Controlled Vocabularies, Thesauri, Topic Maps, Ontologies, Networked Knowledge Organization Systems

AIM AND OBJECTIVES

The primary aim of the workshop is to inform NKOS researchers and practitioners about developments across a number of communities and to identify research and development directions. The objectives are to encourage sharing of new initiatives and lessons learned and to identify collaborative development opportunities.

PROGRAM

Session 1: Welcome and introduction to NKOS and to the workshop

Session 2: Self-introductions and brief descriptions of projects and interests particularly as they relate to the topic of integration and interoperability

Session 3: Case studies about the interoperability and integration of KOSs (approximately 2 presentations)

Session 4 : Presentations on methodologies, tools and strategies (approximately 2)

Session 5 : Presentations on recent related standards activities (approximately 2)

Session 6: Open discussion of the issues raised in the previous sessions

Session 7: Identification of a research agenda based on reactions from a panel of practitioners, software developers, academics and standards developers

WORKSHOP FORMAT

The full-day workshop will include invited and accepted presentations, guided by a program committee. Presentations will be grouped into topic sessions and demonstrations can be set up for access before and after the workshop and during breaks. Discussion and identification of issues will be encouraged by providing a significant amount of time for open discussion and networking opportunities. Participants will be given the opportunity to introduce their work and their interests. The identification of a research agenda will involve significant facilitated discussions.

ATTENDEES

The workshop will be announced via the NKOS listserv, which now has over 100 members from more than 10 countries. In addition, other relevant listservs and groups, such as ASIST-L, ASIST SIG-CR, ECDL, Dig-Lib, ASI, and standards-related groups will be notified. Approximately 25-35 participants are expected, though the organizers would prefer not to limit attendance. If necessary, the participants will be accepted in the order of registration. As in the past, the organizers will work with the JCDL organizers to coordinate logistics and monitor registrations.

WORKSHOP ORGANIZERS (略)

PREVIOUS NKOS ACTIVITIES

This is the 7th in the series of NKOS workshops held in conjunction with the JCDL. Past topics have included protocols for networked KOS, requirements for electronic thesauri, digital gazetteers, and moving traditional KOS into semantic web concepts. Attendance has ranged from 15 to over 50 people. NKOS is an ad hoc working group of academics and practitioners interested in various knowledge organization systems in networked environments. The listserv, hosted by NSF DL2, includes over 100 professionals from more than 10 countries. The NKOS Web site ( http://nkos.slis.kent.edu ) is hosted by Kent State Univ. NKOS-related sessions have been held at ECDL. The ECDL and JCDL NKOS sessions have resulted in proceedings which are available from the NKOS Web site, and in special issues of the Journal of Digital Information.

Meta-search: SRW/U会成为NISO Metasearch的标准?- –

1、 Dlib Mag 刊出了一篇 SRW/U 的文章,把 SRW/U 与 OAI 的 protocol 进行对比,并提出了兼用这两种协议的方法。使我想到应该在”知识组织”课程里介绍这两种协议,同时介绍他们的相容性。

2、 SRW/U 作为 Z39.50 的 Web/XML 版本,有彻底的脱胎换骨,实际上 Z ( Zing )的功能被一系列新的协议所取代,而不是仅仅一个 SRW/U 。可参考网页: http://www.loc.gov/z3950/agency/zing/

3、 也是在本期 dlib 杂志上看到一个 OLAC 项目的元数据方案,采用比较规范的 DC Profile 形式在网上公开,可以供我们的项目参考。

http://www.language-archives.org/REC/olac-extensions.html

4、 NISO 的 Metasearch Initiative ( http://www.niso.org/committees/MetaSearch-info.html )与 Zing 到底是一种什么关系?可能 NISO 希望 Zing 的开发可以作为下一代 MetaSearch 的标准吧。

2005/2/23补记:

看到年心搏客( http://hjn66.blogchina.com/ )里对元搜索的一种区分,好像有点道理,不知是不是国内的普遍认识?

2. 整合检索:将各个数据库的元数据套录出来组成新的二次文献库,对源文件进行链接管理,这种方式技术难度大,需要数据厂商的支持。 TRS 就是这个类型的,这也是国外数字图书馆跨库检索的发展方向,不过国内的数据厂商相对比较封闭,不容易开展!

待续…
