Event An academic event is part of the established instruments of science communication as a format for conveying the latest scientific publications. It is defined by the meeting of researchers at a specific time and place (virtual or physical) and with a specific thematic focus to present, hear and discuss these publications. In contrast to other forms of events, academic events should primarily serve the exchange of results and methods of scientific research and their didactic mediation. Furthermore, a significant participation of scientific organizations in the realization of an academic event is constitutive for this type of event; for example, to distinguish it from events in which researchers mainly act as external experts or with a purely legitimising function.
Subobject Event Format An academic event format specification is a plan specification that classifies a planned gathering of people in an academic context according to some sociocultural format, which provides implicit and explicit details on how this gathering is to be carried out by its participants in terms of achieving certain objectives, fulfilling certain conditions and performing certain actions. It thus concretizes the expectations of the contributors of an academic event. While the explicit details are often provided as concrete parts (e.g. deadline or attendance fee specifications), the implicit details depend on the semantics encoded in the words used for the classification of academic events (e.g. "conference" or "workshop"). Depending on the sociocultural background these classifications can overlap or vary to a certain degree.
Event Series An academic event series describes the set of academic events which take place on a regular basis and thus have an established common identity. This identity is constituted, for example, through institutional continuity in the hosting of a series (e.g. by a specialised society), thematic focuses and/or a common label under which a series is defined (particularly name and acronym). Nevertheless, it is possible that each of these criteria may change over time.
External ID An identifer of an entity declared in another schema.
GND ID The identifier of a thing (item) in the German National authority file.
Subobject Keynote Speaker A 'keynote speaker' is a presenter that is an invited person - often a multiplier in his or her (research) field - responsible for delivering a keynote speech.
Subobject Location A container for the information about the location in which an academic event takes place.
Subobject Metric A container for statistical information about an event or event series.
Subobject Moderator A person that has the role to moderate an academic event.
Subobject Named Thing A mixin used to provide the attributes needed for the identification of a thing.

Subobject Presenter A person that presents its work at an academic event.
Subobject Publication A published work, e.g. proceedings or conferenc paper, that is the output of an academic event or series.
Region The region in which an academic event takes place. For non USA events this might often be negligible.
Subobject Reviewer A person that has the role to review the submissions of an academic event.
Subobject Schema Based Thing A mixin used in classes that contain schema based values, such as the classifications used to denote the academic field of an event or the external identifiers used to denote a thing.
Subobject Sponsor A person or an organization whose role it is to sponsor an academic event or event series.
TIBKAT ID The identifier of a publication in the TIB catalog that references an event or event series.
Venue The venue at which an academic event takes place.
