LIS Workshop 2019 Leipzig

By | 20. Juli 2018

The workshop on „Classification and Subject Indexing in Library and Information Science“ (LIS 2019) will be part of the European Conference on Data Analysis (ECDA 2019) and will be held at the 7th Library Congress Leipzig, March 18-21, 2019.

LIS 2019 solicits contributions on the role of classification and data analysis in this domain. Topics in these area include but are not limited to:

  • Classification and subject indexing in the context of catalogs and resource discovery systems
  • Methods, approaches and applications in subject indexing, classification and data analysis in different countries
  • Open Access to classification systems: How can we provide a sustainable classification infrastructure?
  • Linked (subject) data (E.g. Faceted classification and Linked Data architectures: a happy alignment?)
  • Classification, Subject indexing and the Semantic Web (E.g. Taxonomies and Semantic Web Ontologies: how closely are they related to each other?)
  • Automatic and manual methods in Classification and Subject indexing (E.g. Mappings, concordances, heuristics)
  • Classification of research data
  • Subject retrieval in multilingual and multicultural environments
  • Serendipity in library collections and digital libraries

The workshop languages are German and English.
