The focus of the 7th ISKO-Spain Conference is on orienting users of systems and applications of information organization and retrieval in companies, public administration, archives and document centres, portals or Internet services, databases and digital libraries.

Knowledge organization has traditionally been centred on representational objects —texts, images and documents in general— or on computer systems that facilitate information retrieval. It is ever more apparent that there is a need to take into consideration the cognitive, physical, and affective characteristics of different types of people when designing applications. Currently, with the availability of personalized systems that facilitate the interaction between persons and organization systems, questions are being asked such as: How to improve universal access to information? How to obtain maximum performance from the management of knowledge in organizations? How to incorporate users into the design cycles of knowledge organization systems? How to respond to differences (social, cultural, etc.) of the users of these systems?
