(the National School of Information and Library Science)

The Seventh Conference of the French ISKO Chapter will focus on the 
collaborative processes related to collective intelligence, together 
with the question of knowledge organization. From this point of view, 
the purpose of the conference will be to gather theoretical and 
practical contributions coming from the information sciences as well 
as from other fields of study.
The conference will particularly ­ but not exclusively ­ include 
research papers on the following themes:

1. Virtual communities, social networks and communities of practice;
2. Social indexing versus normalized indexing based on controlled 
vocabulary languages , classifications and ontologies;
3. Uses and practices of digital devices for work;
4. Linguistic (multilinguism) and cultural aspects of knowledge 
sharing and of knowledge construction;
5. Collaborative research and information intelligence sharing
6. Information intelligence and knowledge sharing;
7. The impact of norms and formats on collective work;
8. Collaborative practices within the distributed learning;
9. Holistic intelligence and collaborative information practices;
10. Documents re-indexing through practices;
11. Construction, representation and access to open resources;

The aim of this conference is to gather proposals dealing with new 
and original researches. It is intended for researchers (both young 
and recognized) as well as for professionals involved in a reflexive process.
