Guidelines for applying content designators:

The content designators identify the subelements occurring in meeting name fields.  A named meeting that is entered under a corporate name is contained in the X10 fields.  Corporate names that include such words as conference or congress are also contained in the X10 fields.  For example, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, a professional group, is a corporate name.

Guidelines for applying all content designators except the second indicator position are given in this section.  A field-specific list of content designators and guidelines for applying the second indicator position are provided under the description for each specific X11 field.

For indicator and subfield code definitions and examples, and designator repeatability, see table below.  An asterisk ( * ) in the column indicates that the requirement varies.  See table in the specific field.:
