The University of Maryland Human-Computer Interaction Lab is hosting a symposium on June 1 and 2.
Day 1 is the actual symposium, with a keynote given by Ben Shneiderman. In addition, Jenny Preece is one of two people giving the welcome. Jenny is the Dean of the College of Information Studies, where I graduated from. She is also an expert on online communities, a topic I am very much interested in. Day 2 will showcase some tutorials and workshops. I will be attending the Humans and the Semantic Web workshop. For those attending the workshop, we needed to submit a position paper. My paper is entitled, “Ontologies and Folksonomies: Can They Coexist?”
I will try to blog the event if I have time (and a connection to the Internet).
