Taxonomy Boot Camp brings together practitioners and experts in taxonomy,
vendors who have created tools to help manage your taxonomies, and novices
who are starting out in the world of information management.  Two parallel
tracks on the first day provide those new to the field with the nuts and
bolts they need to get up to speed, and expert practitioners with insights
into how other professionals have made their organizations more successful
through better use of taxonomies.  On the second day of the Boot Camp,
everyone shares in case studies, practical sessions on taxonomy tools and
their use, and cutting edge developments in the field.  Don't miss this
unique opportunity to learn about tools and techniques you can use to bring
your information clouds together, and meet the people who can help you be
successful in your efforts.
