String Conference Name

Sequence and flow of an extended conference name (for example, “The Learned Society’s Conference on What’s Hot at the University of Wherever on 21–27 July 2011”).


Usage: The <string-conf> element can be used to capture an extended conference name, even if the conference has a short name such as “SigCat 2008”. Such extended names are typically found on the cover of the proceedings or the splash page of the website for the conference. For example, if the cover of the proceedings says, “The Learned Society’s Conference on What’s Hot at the University of Wherever on 21–27 July 2011”, that entire phrase could be tagged as the content of a <string-conf> element, while the conference name could also be recorded more formally as “What’s Hot 2011” inside the <conf-name> element.
