The Center for Information Policy Research is proud to again be a sponsor of the 3rd Milwaukee Conference on Ethics in Knowledge Organization (previously called Ethics of Information Organization). The official conference website is here, and the original call for papers is provided below.


The Big Deal: 3rd Milwaukee Conference on Ethics in Knowledge Organization

May 28-29, 2015

Milwaukee, WI

The role of ethics in knowledge organization has moved from the background to the foreground. Objectivity and literary warrant alone have been shown to be insufficient for ethical knowledge organization. Ethical concerns have been demonstrated in the roles of exclusivity and point-of-view, the relationship between literary and cultural warrant, in the creation of knowledge organization systems that embrace socio-political symbolism, and in the evolution of standards and professional best practices for the implementation of knowledge organization. Following the success of conferences held in 2009 and 2012, The Knowledge Organization Research Group joins with the Center for Information Policy and Research of the School of Information Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to present the Third Milwaukee Conference on Ethics in Knowledge Organization. We welcome papers and posters on any aspect of ethics and knowledge organization including but not limited to: bibliographic standards, cataloging and indexing best-practices, classification, controlled vocabulary, technology, the professions, cultural, economic, political, corporate, international, multicultural and multilingual aspects of knowledge organization.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Tina Gross, Catalog Librarian/Associate Professor, St. Cloud State University
  •  Joe Tennis, Associate Professor, University of Washington, and President, International Society for Knowledge Organization

CFP: 2nd Milwaukee Conference on Ethics of Information Organization

Dec 13, 2011   //   by cipradmin   //   News  //  Comments Off on CFP: 2nd Milwaukee Conference on Ethics of Information Organization

Information organization, like other major functions of the information professions, faces many ethical challenges. In our literature, ethical concerns have been raised with regard to, topics such as, the role of national and international tools and standards, provision of subject access to information, deprofessionalization and outsourcing, education of professionals, and the effects of globalization. These issues and many others like them have serious implications for quality and equity in information access.

The Information Organization Research Group and the Center for Information Policy Research of the School of Information Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee join in presenting this second conference to address the ethics of information organization. Like the first Ethics of Information Organization conference held in Milwaukee May 2009, this conference (June 2012) welcomes papers on ethics and any element of information organization from cataloging standards to tagging; subject access; technology; the profession; cultural, economic, political, corporate, international, multicultural and multilingual aspects.

Invited speakers will include:

  • Opening speaker: Jens-Erik Mai, University of Toronto
  • Closing speaker: Richard Smiraglia, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

We invite submission of proposals for papers which will include: name(s) of presenter(s), title(s), affiliation(s), contact information and abstracts of 300-500 words. Presentations will be 20 minutes. Time will be set aside for questions as well as broader discussion. All abstracts will be published on the Web site of the UW-Milwaukee Information Organization Research Group. Full papers will be published in a special issue of Knowledge Organization.

  • Abstracts due: February 15, 2012
  • Notification of acceptance by: March 15, 2012
  • Full papers due: July 15, 2012
