[InetBib] Invitation for registration for International UDC Seminar 2015

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren

Dear colleagues

=== Early Bird Registration ===

The International UDC Seminar entitled "Classification & Authority Control: 
Expanding Resource Discovery" will take place in The National Library of 
Portugal in Lisbon, on 29-30 October 2015.

Conference website: http://seminar.udcc.org/2015 <http://seminar.udcc.org/2015>.
Contact: seminar2015@xxxxxxxx <mailto:seminar2015@xxxxxxxx>

Linked data practices and techniques have opened new possibilities in 
exploiting controlled vocabularies and improving resource discovery. Authority 
data held in library systems often includes classification schemes. These 
knowledge structures now have the potential for being shared across the linked 
data environment. The objective of this conference is to explore such 
potential, expanding the value and use of classification as an authority 
controlled vocabulary, from a local perspective to the global environment.

The conference will be opened by Emer. Prof. Michael Buckland, well-known 
expert in the history and theory of documentation and bibliographic access.
The topic of authority control, subject authority control and subject access in 
various contexts will be discussed by a series of eminent speakers speakers 
including Barbara Tillett, Dagobert Soergel, Rebecca Green, Maja Zumer, Marcia 
Zeng, Nuno Freire, Andrea Scharnhorst, Maria Ines Cordeiro, Koraljka Golub, 
Claudio Gnoli.
