    The ISKO UK Executive Committee has taken the very difficult decision to cancel the ISKO UK 2021 biennial conference due to the insufficient number of submissions.

    The overall response was too low for us to have a viable event. We are sorry for the disappointment that this will cause. The biennial conference is normally a highlight of our events calendar. We are grateful for the support that we have had from colleagues and potential authors and we would encourage authors to consider submitting research papers to the ISKO journal Knowledge Organization.

    Over the last year ISKO UK has organised a well-attended series of online Knowledge Organization Meetups and the KO-ED series of workshops in response to the Covid-19 lockdown. These will continue to run in 2021 along with the Knowledge Organization Research Observatory workshops starting on 31st March.
