Hello Imma,

The EU Nereus Economists Online project makes use of MODS to encode
conference papers, examples can be found here:

Search for 'conferencePaper'. Data about the conference proceedings in this
case are recorded in 'relatedItem' but I don't see why information about the
conference itself couldn't go there.

Kind regards,

Subject: [MODS] Conference in MODS

Dear all,

I guess I should introduce myself. I am currently involved in the Open
Archive @ FAO, it has as main objective the integration of the FAO's
electronic publishing, digital information repository, and the bibliographic
cataloguing requirements. I am trying to implement MODS in the FAO Fedora
content as the core/default metadata in FOXML.

I am now mapping our legacy data (ISO-2709) to MODS. It is going pretty
but I have gotten stuck on trying to map the MODS XSD to a conference paper
model. We would like to keep its own element or attribute and not in with
conference name. Is there anyone who can give me any advice about where to
put 'conference location' and 'conference number'? For 'conference date' I
have already looked at the possibility of using originInfo/date

Thanks a lot in advance!
