When a work contains the report or proceedings of a conference, meeting, workshop,
seminar, etc., or contains text issued under the responsibility of a conference,
meeting, etc., the authority-controlled conference name, as found in the UNBIS Name
Authority File, is entered in 711 $a.
If an UNBIS authority record for a conference
name does not exist, a new authority record is created.
The number (if applicable), year(s) and place(s) of the meeting are enclosed
within parentheses after the conference name in subfield $a. Subsidiary bodies
may follow the conference name in subfield $a. Additional MARC21 subfield codes
for tag 711 are not used in UNBIS.

Multiple conference names may be recorded in separate 711 fields.
In recording multiple 711 fields, it is desirable to follow the order
in which they appear in the statement of responsibility, or in order
of their occurrence within the document, or in the order that makes most sense.
For UN documents, the cataloguing «rule of three» is generally not applied
and the abbreviation «[et al.]» is not used in recording the statement of
responsibility (245 $c). All conference names in the statement of responsibility
recorded in 245 $c (or otherwise identified in the bibliographic record as
responsible for the item) are added in separate 711 fields.
Field 111 is not used for
conference main entry, since the main entry for UN documents is considered to be the document
symbol and series symbol (field 191
In the case of a report of a conference (089 Content Code A16), the
authority record for the conference should be attached as a 611 Conference
Subject in addition to appearing as a 711 Conference Name.
For UN documents issued for conferences, when the conference name appearing
in the masthead area of the document is represented by the document series
symbol and session (field 191 $bc), it is generally not entered as 711 Conference
Name (except in the case of meeting reports; resolutions, decisions, declarations or
recommendations adopted by the meeting; or when the name appears in a statement of responsibility).
