Conference name conflicts

Conflicts do not usually occur between headings for single conferences, since the date and place qualifiers serve to distinguish otherwise identical names. (There are some rare exceptions, which should be referred to the NACO Coordinator.)

However, conflicts can exist between the names of more than one ongoing conference, which are established without qualifiers.

If the name of an ongoing conference conflicts, add to the name an appropriate qualifier (RI 24.7B). The following names represent three different conferences:

    111 20 International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction [established first]
    111 20 International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (International Federation for Information Processing)
    111 20 International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (1991- )
As for corporate bodies, there is no order of preference for the qualifier chosen.

When the name of an ongoing conference is qualified to break a conflict, the entry on the bibliographic record for one of its meetings will have two sets of parentheses:

    Authority record:
    Governor's Conference on Education (Kan.)

    Bibliographic record:
    Governor's Conference on Education (Kan.)án(1st : ád1954 : ácTopeka, Kan.)
