Topic Maps 2007

Conference (2007-03-20 - 2007-03-21)


The First International Topic Maps Users Conference took place at the Oslo Conference Centre in Norway on March 20-21 2007.

Attendees experienced two days of tutorials, case studies, technical discussions, and exhibitions. They learned about how the ISO Topic Maps standard is being applied around the world to solve problems of information and knowledge management and had the opportunity to meet fellow users and talk to some of the world’s leading experts.

As a former information scientist, I am fascinated since 1999 by the capabilities for building Topic Maps-based knowledge systems having the potential to augment human mind. One can model arbitrary knowledge organization systems, deal with semantic heterogeneity, collocate all facts about one subject in one logical place, and with TMQL have semantic retrieval on federated semantic networks. Therefore I expect bright prospects for business concepts building on the exchange of such knowledge snippets via semantic knowledge services.
