International UDC Seminar 2009
CLASSIFICATION AT A CROSSROADS - MULTIPLE DIRECTIONS TO USABILITY
The Hague, 29-30 October 2009
Following the success of the first International Seminar on UDC in 2007, this
the second in a series of biennial conferences is entitled "Classification at a
Crossroads: Multiple Directions to Usability" and will take place on 29-30
October 2009 in the UDC headquarters at the Koninklijke Bibliotheek in The Hague.
The 2009 Seminar aims to explore how new developments in information standards
and technology influence and affect applications and services using
classification, Universal Decimal Classification in particular, and its
relationships to other systems.
The conference programme will highlight many ways in which classification use
can be improved. Attention will be paid to the applications of classification
schemes, in supporting multilingual access, user-friendly representations of
classification in resource discovery and semantic searching expansion and
classification application across distributed systems.
Papers are now invited from classification researchers and practitioners, as
well as information systems managers on the following topics:
1. classification and semantic technologies
2. classification in supporting information integration
3. verbal and multilingual access to classification
4. classification authority control and library systems
5. visual representations/interface to classification
6. experiences with classification outside the traditional library environment
Contributions may include conference papers and posters. To read more about the
conference and its theme and to submit your abstract, please go to the
conference website: http://www.udcc.org/seminar2009/index.htm.
Contributions will be reviewed by the Programme Committee consisting of an
international panel of experts. All papers will be made available in an open
e-print archive and linked to from the UDCC website. Selected papers will be
published in the "Extensions and Corrections to the UDC", 31 (2009).
