Conference proceedings are the published collections of papers, or abstracts of papers, from a conference. They may be published in a variety of ways, as books or journals. They may take several years to be published and not all papers presented are published. Individual papers may also be published in a particular journal or on an author or institutional website.

  • Search for individual papers in databases or on the Internet.
  • Search for conference proceedings published as books or journals in library catalogues.
