The International UDC Seminar entitled "Classification & Authority Control: Expanding Resource Discovery" will take place in The National Library of Portugal in Lisbon, on 29-30 October 2015.

Linked data practices and techniques have opened new possibilities in exploiting controlled vocabularies and improving resource discovery. Authority data held in library systems often includes classification schemes. These knowledge structures now have the potential for being shared across the linked data environment.

The objective of this conference is to explore such potential, expanding the value and use of classification as an authority controlled vocabulary, from a local perspective to the global environment.

Speakers include Michael Buckland, Barbara Tillett, Dagobert Soergel, Rebecca Green, Maja Žumer & Marcia Zeng, Nuno Freire, Maria Inês Cordeiro, Andrea Scharnhorst & Richard Smiraglia, Wolfram Sperber, Koraljka Golub, Claudio Gnoli, Marie Balikova, Victoria Francu.

Proceedings are published by Ergon Verlag.
