Themes for the 2022 NKOS Workshop
The 2022 NKOS workshop will explore the potential of Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS), such as terminologies, vocabularies, classification systems, taxonomies, thesauri, ontologies, and lexical databases, in the context of current developments and possibilities. The workshop welcomes submissions on the following themes particularly concerning the COVID-19 pandemic as the main focus:
- Health-related KOS issues and contributions.
- How KOS enables remote work and collaboration.
Further timely presentations/demonstrations will be selected from the following topics:
- Quality and Governance.
- Domain Modeling.
- Terminology/Vocabulary Development and KOS Mapping.
- History and Ethics.
- Automated Indexing.

NKOS (Networked Knowledge Organization Systems) is an ad hoc work group of more than 300 international experts and implementers of knowledge organization systems. NKOS is devoted to enabling knowledge organization systems/services (KOS), such as classification systems, thesauri, gazetteers, and ontologies, as networked, interactive information services to support the description and retrieval of diverse information resources through the Internet.
