Conference Theme

Theme, slogan, or major subject area of a conference.


The theme of a conference is not always related to the conference name. For example, the name of an annual conference may be “16th ACH Gathering”, but each year the conference has a different theme topic, such as “Database Integration” or “Topic Map Subject Access”.
