The high quality programme of this year's conference, features the most prominent researchers in the field of knowledge organization and classification theory: Richard Smiraglia, Vanda Broughton, Birger Hjørland, Claudio Gnoli, Joseph Tennis, ARD Prasad & Fausto Giunchiglia, Martin Fricke, Dagobert Soergel, etc.
UDC number interpreter/parser
An interpreter (parser) for complex UDC number can be accessed here.
This approach to processing UDC numbers may be useful especially during retrospective conversion or in the context of library systems which do not have authority control or access to the MRF data.

Both are outcome of a research project by Attila Piros (University of Debrecen, Hungary). The list of his publications and presentations on this topic can be found here.
