The date(s) on which the conference was held
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 could 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>
The element <conf-date> may be used in bibliographic references <citation> and <nlm-citation>. For extensive examples of formatted <nlm-citation>s including use of <conf-date>s in <nlm-citation>s, see: Sample PubMed Central Citations. To see tagged versions of these examples, see: Sample PubMed Central Citations - XML Tagged.
