Taxonomy Boot Camp London 2017, which will be held October 17-18, will explore the growing use of taxonomies to drive data, content, information processes and more.
Participants of all experience levels will learn why taxonomies are now a business-critical asset, will explore fresh approaches to establishing taxonomy in their organizations, will hear cutting-edge taxonomy developments from case studies and ongoing projects, and will have opportunities to network with a ready-made taxonomy community.
The theme of Taxonomy Boot Camp 2017, which will be held Nov. 6-7 in Washington, DC, is "From Potential to Powerhouse." The event will focus on the power of organizing, the power of creating meaning, and the power of dynamic content. Taxonomies are all about creating structures that tap into this vast potential, bringing data and information to life.
This year’s theme is all about harnessing the power of taxonomies to generate value. For those starting from scratch, it’s about starting the process to create order from chaos. For those who already have a taxonomy, it’s about unlocking the next level of benefits gained by increasing scope, implementing new systems, or starting to move towards ontologies. Taxonomy Boot Camp 2017 is focused on stepping up the taxonomy game.
The Taxonomy Boot Camp program is designed to provide something for everyone, from taxonomy newbies to seasoned experts (and everyone in between). Beginner sessions provide those new to the field with the nuts and bolts they need to get up-to-speed and give more experienced practitioners insight into how others have evolved their approaches. Also, hear case studies, attend practical sessions on taxonomy tools and methods, and learn about cutting-edge developments in the field.
Taxonomy Boot Camp is the only conference dedicated to exploring the successes, challenges, methodologies and products for taxonomies. Share your experiences, knowledge and work with taxonomies, ontologies, folksonomies, tagging mechanisms and other techniques for organizing information at this one-of-a-kind learning and networking event.
