Taxonomy Boot Camp 2021 Will Be Held Virtually

Just a few months ago, we seemed to be on a path to return to Washington, DC for our first in-person Taxonomy Boot Camp conference in two years. Our planners, speakers, and community were all very excited to see everyone face-to-face again. Unfortunately, it now seems there continues to be too many obstacles in our way for us to overcome. We have recently made the decision that we will not be able to host Taxonomy Boot Camp 2021 as an in-person event.

We deeply appreciate your support of Taxonomy Boot Camp and your understanding that we have made every effort to host Taxonomy Boot Camp 2021.

We are, however, excited to move forward with planning for Taxonomy Boot Camp Connect 2021. Given the successes and experiences of our previous virtual events, we are now prepared to make Taxonomy Boot Camp Connect 2021 our best virtual conference ever. The virtual conference will be held, as scheduled, the week of November 15 - 17, 2021.

Taxonomy Boot Camp Connect 2021 is the world’s leading conference dedicated to exploring the successes, challenges, methodologies and products for taxonomies. Join us and share your experiences, network with peers, and get incredible insight on taxonomies, ontologies, folksonomies, tagging mechanisms and other techniques for organizing information at this one-of-a-kind event.

Taxonomy Boot Camp is designed for everyone involved with taxonomies, from those new to the field to seasoned experts (and everyone in between). Beginner sessions cover the nuts and bolts, while more advanced sessions give experienced practitioners insight into how others have evolved their approaches. Hear case studies, how-to sessions, and practical talks on taxonomy tools and methods, and cutting-edge developments in the field.

Don’t miss this opportunity to reconnect with colleagues, peers, and experts, and learn how successful taxonomy building and management can transform your organizationand your career!

Full program, registration, and sponsorship information is available on our virtual event website.
