19th Annual ASIS&T SIG/CR Classification Research Workshop
Saturday, October 25th, 2008 - Columbus, Ohio
CALL FOR PAPERS - abstracts due July 15, 2008

This year's workshop will focus on classification within the visual 
and performing arts.
Within the arts, the lively arts present unique classification 
challenges related to the
diversity of meanings found within a single "work".  In addition, 
these works commonly
occur within bounded time and space, and each occurrence can generate 
a large network
of inter-related" documents" and accompanying material which 
libraries, information
centers and archives collect.

Papers or poster addressing the following points are especially welcome.
* Enduring aspects of classification and subject analysis that are 
being applied to organization within the arts
* Examples of alternative organization strategies, like social 
tagging, within the arts
* Challenges for classification within the arts and how does this 
contrast with other domains
* Future opportunities available to us as we attempt to organize
our world of complex documents and media

The workshop's format will provide for a few detailed research talks 
as well poster
presentations and informal chats.  Researchers, practitioners, and 
students interested
in classification, both traditional and more current methods, are 
encouraged to participate.

The workshop will run from 8:30 until 4:45 with a box lunch and 
snacks provided.  The
day will include individual speakers; panel presentations; and a 
poster session with
plenty of time for informal discussion with the authors.

  Abstracts (500-1000 words) due by 7/15/08 to workshop chair.
  Full papers (3000-5000 words) due by 9/1/08 to workshop chair.

Workshop Chair:
