North American Symposium for Knowledge Organization (NASKO 2017): Visualizing Knowledge Organization: Bringing Focus to Abstract Realities

Knowledge organization and the systems that constitute its primary products seek to to make abstractions of knowledge concrete. Visualization is an increasingly popular way to create pictorial representations of knowledge using diverse methodologies, which seek to aid in the clarity of the comprehension and understanding of knowledge abstractions and their organization in knowledge space. Also, metaphorical “visualization” can involve the use of diverse methodologies to focus and enhance breadth of viewpoints in knowledge space. The Sixth North American Symposium on Knowledge Organization (NASKO 2017) invites participants to bring forth approaches to visualizing knowledge, knowledge organization, and knowledge organization systems.
