10th Conference ISKO - Knowledge organization systems and digital humanities, 5-6 November 2015, Strasbourg, France

Knowledge organization has been the main object of research for the French branch of ISKO, since its foundation in 1996. We have successively explored organizational structure, the technical tools of mediation as well as the forms and mechanisms of knowledge-sharing systems. All these questions are related to the mechanisms of the production of information and the circulation of knowledge. As part of this ongoing reflection, the tenth ISKO-France Conference will examine the ways in which digital technology has affected knowledge organization in the humanities and the social sciences.

Over the past fifteen years, digital technology has brought about extensive changes in the conditions of production and dissemination of knowledge. The creation, digitization, structuring, processing and valorization of corpuses of images, texts, sounds, and videos have become such central issues for the sciences that handle them that the questions and practices involved have been brought together under the common heading of “digital humanities”. This field seeks to integrate digital culture and technologies into research practices in the humanities and social sciences. The 2015 edition of the ISKO conference will examine the deep transformation undergone by knowledge organization systems in the digital age, as it pertains to research in the social sciences and humanities.
