Vocabulary Symposium 2022 Recordings

Watch recordings of the presentations at Vocabulary Symposium 2022, held on 14 and 15 November 2022.

Co-hosted by the ARDC, the Australian Data Archive and CODATA, Vocabulary Symposium 2022 was held on 14 and 15 November 2022 online and in person at the Australian National University. The event drew over 200 users, creators and publishers of research vocabularies from various domains and sectors in Australia and around the world, who shared their experiences and discussed what’s required in a future where cross-domain data is underpinned by vocabularies that are FAIR, i.e., findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable.

The symposium featured keynote and plenary presentations around 5 themes:

  • cross-domain vocabularies in practice
  • extending vocabulary use across domains
  • current best practices in vocabulary management and governance in Australia
  • vocabulary services and technologies
  • social and institutional challenges and opportunities in the adoption of vocabularies.

A playlist of 19 recordings of the presentations is now available:

Supplementary Materials

You can also access the abstracts and/or slides through the event program. These materials will be of interest to researchers, data managers, vocabulary publishers, librarians and policy developers across the research, government and industry sectors.

The symposium was followed by a 2-and-a-half-day invitation-only workshop, where participants from a wide range of domains worked to map out the current vocabulary landscape and identify future requirements. Find out more about the workshop on its website.

We’ve also published a report on the Symposium and Workshop. The report provides an overview of both events and their aims, outcomes and activities, including discussions of participant demographics, skill level and domain background.
