23rd Annual SIG/CR Classification Research Workshop
Classification Research: Past, Prospect and Pinnacles (SIG CR)
Friday, October 26, 2012, Full Day 8:30am-5:00pm (workshop fee)
As part of the 75th anniversary of ASIS&T, this full day workshop will examine the past and future prospects of SIG/CR, one of seven original Special Interest Groups established at the American Documentation Institute on March 3, 1966. Of this original group only SIG/CR [Classification Research], SIG/ED [Education for Information Science] and SIG BC [Biological and Chemical Information Systems] now known as SIG/STI [Scientific & Technical Information Science] remain.
Instead of the traditional format, this workshop will assemble researchers from the major schools in information organization to comment on their current work, past work done in classification research, and the major advances in the field.
