Conference Proceedings should be promoted rather than book editions and due to importance of their classifications, recording and disseminating; International Standard Proceedings Number (ISPN) has been announced as a digit sequence of records.
International Standard Proceedings Number (ISPN) aims to record, track and classify the proceedings editions using a modularized structure of 13 digits specified sequence per proceeding edition. ISPN digital sequence has 12 standard digit rings ends by a final digit as the check digit. Check digit is calculating automatically to be assigned to the proceedings edition as the unique sequence number with a prefix of assignment (Three primary digits) which locates the country of proceeding publishing.
