The short name, popular name, or “jargon name” for a conference, for example, “Extreme” for “Extreme Markup Languages” or “SIGGRAPH” for “Special Interest Group on Computer Graphics”; this element has been provided for searching convenience when the jargon name is better known than the full formal conference name.
A conference acronym often includes the year of the conference (e.g., “SGML ’97”) or, less often, the conference number (e.g., “AMBA 6”). It is preferred, but not required, that the acronym exclude this year or number (thus using “SGML” or “AMBA” and putting the year or number in the <conf-date> and <conf-num> elements, respectively.
