Martin Belam presentation at IP Lezing in Amsterdam
The second leg of my recent trek across Europe took me to Amsterdam, where I had been kindly invited to speak at the annual IP Lezing arranged by Informatie Professional magazine. The theme of the day was "Taxonomie: Theorie en Toepassing", and I was speaking about "Taxonomies and classification schemas within the BBC".
The conference was very well attended, with around 350 delegates - and I enjoyed meeting some really nice people, both before and after the event.
There will also be a version of the presentation in a Dutch language article in the next edition (February 2005) of Informatie Professional. (I should add that the Dutch rendition will be due to the translating skills of the lovely Marianne Peereboom)
Although my stay in Amsterdam was all too brief, I did get to have two lengthy strolls around the environs of the Amsterdam Hilton where the conference was based - and I got to give my new camera another really good run-out.
