Submission deadline: Friday, 1 July 2016
Notification of acceptance: Tuesday, 16th August 2016
Proposals are invited for the following:
a) Presentations (typically 20 minutes plus discussion time, potentially

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 Koraljka Golub (koraljka.golub at lnu.se
<mailto:koraljka.golub at lnu.se> ). Proposals will be peer-reviewed by the
program committee. At least one presentation author needs to register for

DCMI copyright provisions
otice). Presentations from the workshop may be encouraged to be submitted as
extended papers for a peer reviewed journal publication.
Themes for the 16th NKOS workshop will be:
(1) KOS Alignment. KOS alignment or terminology mapping plays a vital role
in NKOS for many years. This year we want to sort out the needs (use cases)
of KOS alignments in the new environment of Linked Open Data. We plan to
collect methodologies, best practices, guidelines and tools. This includes
manual and automatic alignments.
(2) KOS Linked Open Data. Recent years have seen an increasing trend to
publication of KOS as Linked Data vocabularies. 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.
(3) Subject metadata for research data. With increasing recognition of the
need to manage research data as part of universities research output,
subject metadata represent particular challenges that need to be addressed
from theoretical as well as practical perspectives. We plan to discuss
existing issues, especially in terms of interoperability across disciplines
as well as applications, and strive towards establishment of best practices
Further timely presentations/demonstrations will be selected from the
following topics in the CfP:
(4) KOS-based recommender systems. The suggestion of the right meaningful
concepts is a mission critical phase for searchers in modern DL.
(5) Meaningful Concept Display and Meaningful Visualization of KOS.
(6) Standards developments.
(7) Evaluation of KOS-based systems methods and practical experience.
KOS applications are a regular and important part of NKOS workshops. Example
(8) KOS in e-Research metadata contexts - intersection between research
data, KOS, Semantic web.
(9) Social tagging. What is the role of social tagging and informal
knowledge structures versus established KOS? (How) can tagging be guided and
informed by KOS?
(10) Users interaction with KOS in the online environment.
(11) KOS and learning. What is required to use KOS effectively to convey
meaning, to assist users to express their information needs to assist in
sense making and learning?
(12) Multilingual and Interdisciplinary KOS applications and tools.
(13) Specific domains, such as environmental, medical, new application
