The papers in this volume were presented at TMRA 2007, the International Conference on Topic Maps Research and Applications, held October 11a€“12, 2007, in Leipzig, Germany. TMRA 2007 was the third conference in an annual series of international conferences dedicated to Topic Maps in science and industry. The motto of TMRA 2007 was a€œScaling Topic Maps.a€ Taken literally the motto implies developing Topic Maps approaches that scale to large data and user volumes. This is a very real and useful research problem which is addressed by many of the contributions to the conference. But there is an even broader interpretation of the motto: wide adoption of Topic Maps in academia and industry. This is an equally important problem, and one that the TMRA conference series exists to help solve. And there is a more fanciful view on the motto. To a€œscalea€ can also mean to climb, so for the attendees the conference provided a way to a€œscale the mountain of Topic Maps.a€ In all these ways TMRA 2007 helped to scale Topic Maps.The Ontopia Omnigator (2002) [PH03] Park, J., Hunting, S.: XML Topic Maps: Creating and Using Topic Maps for the Web.
