International UDC Seminar 2017 marks the anniversaries of two conferences 
devoted to faceted classification research: sixty years since the First 
International Study Conference on Classification Research (Dorking, 1957) and 
twenty years since the the Sixth International Study Conference (London, 1997).
The objective of the conference is to revisit faceted analytical theory as a 
method for (re)constructing modern classifications and indexing languages and 
the role analytico-synthetic classifications have had in resource discovery and 
retrieval, from their introduction at the beginning of the 20th century to 
date. The conference will examine the challenges analytico-synthetic 
classifications represent for data modelling and interface design in the Web 
environment. Most importantly, it will explore potential fields of application 
for faceted classifications in information organization, visualization and 
presentation of large datasets, social networks and in the open linked data 

High quality and innovative contributions are invited for the following topics:
- The impact of faceted analytical theory and research on modern classification 
and indexing languages;
- Data modelling, data management and data sharing of faceted and 
analytico-synthetic classifications;
- Vocabulary mapping, semantic linking and natural language interfacing of 
analytico-synthetic systems;
- Applications of faceted analytical theory on (re)constructing knowledge 
classifications and indexing languages;
- End user interface design and user-friendly knowledge presentation for 
faceted systems;
- Novel applications of faceted systems outside the bibliographic domain.


Two kinds of contributions are invited: conference papers and posters. Authors 
should submit a paper proposal in the form of an extended abstract (1000-1200 
words, including references, for papers; and 500-600 words for posters). The 
submission form is provided on the conference website. 

Proposals will be reviewed by the Programme Committee consisting of an 
international panel of experts. Each submission will undergo a blind review by 
at least three reviewers. 
The Conference proceedings will be published by Ergon Verlag and will be 
distributed at the conference. Best papers will be proposed to be published in 
Knowledge Organization journal

ORGANIZER: The International UDC Seminar 2017 "Faceted Classification Today: 
Theory, Technology and End Users" is the sixth biennial conference in a series 
of International UDC Seminars 
organized by the UDC Consortium (UDCC). UDC Seminars are devoted to advances in 
documentary classification research and their application in a networked 
environment. UDCC is a not-for-profit organization, based in The Hague, 
established to maintain and distribute the Universal Decimal Classification and 
to support its use and development. UDC is one of the most widely used 
knowledge organization systems in the bibliographic domain.
