Presentations given at Building the future of DDC: Translations, technology and transition 2003-2013 are available online. The symposium took place at the National Library of Norway, Oslo, Norway in April 2013, in association with the annual meeting of the European DDC Users Group (EDUG).
The web page provides links to most of the presentations from the seven seminars held since the inaugural meeting of EDUG at the Swiss National Library, Bern, Switzerland in 2007. There are over 50 presentations on various aspects of the DDC, available in a mix of ppt and pdf formats, providing a rich set of resources about development of the classification in an international framework.
The International UDC Seminar 2013 entitled Classification & Visualization: Interfaces to Knowledge will take place 24-25 October in
the National Library of the Netherlands (Koninklijke Bibliotheek), The Hague. The objective of this conference is to explore cutting edge 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.
