Final Invitation for Registration: UDC Seminar 2013
Classification and Visualization: Interfaces to Knowledge" International UDC Seminar 2013 - will take place on Thursday 24 - Friday 25 October in the National Library of the Netherlands, The Hague.
The 2013 Seminar addresses the issue of visualization, which is at the heart of the information discovery problem and an issue of concern for all knowledge classifications.
The selection of 20 presentations captures the width and depth of problems that are shared between two seemingly distant research specializations: classification and visualization.

By covering diverse visualization topics such as solutions for browsing classifications on tablet computers, building visualizations that can exploit classification as linked data and the theoretical foundations of visualization in information science - the conference programme seems to be a true representation of research interests at this very moment.

The conference programme features many eminent speakers. Read more at the conference website

Registration fee: EUR 220 regular fee, students EUR 180
Registration fee covers lunches, refreshments, reception and the conference proceedings book (published by Ergon)

We look forward to seeing you on 24 October.

The new online service has been developed to bring together and align existing translations with the regularly updated knowledge content of the UDC. The tool aims to provide a better, up-to-date and more convenient service for users world-wide. The English version will be the first edition to be made available online.
