Title: Management of Taxonomies for Search, CMS, and Semantic Processing


Despite the widespread use of full-text search, taxonomies and metadata are still needed to provide the best user experience. But how are the taxonomies selected and managed? What roles do they fill now, and what additional roles will they fill in the medium-term future?

This talk looks at the basics of metadata and taxonomies, their roles in content management and in search, and the increasing role that vocabulary resources like authority files, taxonomies, and ontologies are playing as publishers seek at add additional value to their content.
