The conference programme is announced this month, and includes entry level and advanced taxonomy techniques to help you make sense of a world of data. Whatever environment you are working in, join your colleagues from around the world at Taxonomy Boot Camp London on 17 & 18 October to benefit from the experiences of other taxonomists and info pros who are evaluating and embedding taxonomies in all kinds of applications, including search, content management systems, websites, apps, and much more.
