Workshops at JCDL and DCMI conferences have also been co-organised and a special session (What role can KOS play in information retrieval applications?) at the 2nd biennial conference of the UK Chapter of ISKO (International Society for Knowledge Organization) in 2011. For details see the NKOS website.
