Conference Date


The date(s) on which the conference was held


Authoring and Conversion Note: Conference dates in journal headers are traditionally stored in one of two forms: as a single date (“May 1906”), or as the first day and last day of the conference. Either form should be stored in this element. The dates that come initially from separate first and last elements should be combined, for example, the separate dates:

<conf-start>August 4, 2002</conf-start>
<conf-end>August 9, 2002</conf-end>

should be merged into a single conference date to become:

<conf-date>August 4, 2002 - August 9, 2002</conf-date>
