This was the fourth in a series of International UDC Seminars. The 2013 seminar was devoted to exploring advances and techniques in the visualization of knowledge across various fields of application and their potential impact on developments in the more main stream bibliographic and documentary classifications.

This was another successful and well attended UDC Seminar with 115 delegates from 24 countries. The keynoted address by Prof. W. Boyd Rayward was followed by 18 talks. The poster exhibition consisted of four conference posters and a selection of posters from "Places & Spaces: Mapping Science".
Final Invitation for Registration: UDC Seminar 2013
15/10/2013
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.
