NISO June Webinar — Discount for NASIG members

NISO June 9 Webinar: Control Your Vocabulary: Real-World Applications of Semantic Technology

The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) June webinar —June9 from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. (Eastern)— will feature: Control Your Vocabulary: Real-World Applications of Semantic Technology. 

Semantic technologies are slowly opening up new frontiers in discovery and interaction with content. By tying together related terms, concepts, and data in meaningful ways, we can move beyond keyword searching as the primary means of content discovery in our community. Suppliers of information—both publishers and libraries—need to be aware of this changing landscape and the work that is propelling it forward. This webinar will begin with an overview of the semantic landscape and will then highlight real-world applications and uses of semantic technology, first from the perspective of a researcher trying to address specific scientific problems by using semantic technologies, followed by a publisher that has implemented semantic discovery and interaction tools for their content.

Speakers and topics for the webinar are:

  • Keynote Presentation: An Overview of the Semantic Landscape
    Marjorie M.K. Hlava, President and Chairman, Access Innovations / Data Harmony
  • Real-World Applications of Semantic Technology: A Researcher’s Perspective
    TBA
  • Real-World Applications of Semantic Technology: A Publisher’s Perspective
    Helen Parr, Director of Online Publishing, Elsevier
