<conf-loc> Conference Location (in a citation)

Within a citation (such as a <mixed-citation> or an <element-citation>), the physical location(s) of a conference (for example, city, country, campus, organization location).


Best Practice

If the conference is in the United States, the state should also be provided. Do not include a specific venue or address (for example, the conference hotel), unless there is no other location information.
