Conference Proceeding

Conference proceedings are a collection of Scientific/ Research/ Technical papers that presented at a professional association meeting. These meetings are sometimes referred to as conferences, symposia, workshops, expositions, exhibitions and the like. The proceedings would be of different kinds like- Abstracts, Full length papers, extended abstracts, Manuscripts, Presentations, etc. If the publications are filled with full papers, they are considered proceedings, or conference proceedings. Abbreviated papers are referred to as abstracts or conference abstracts. Conference abstracts can be simple (1 page), or extended (2-5 pages). So these publications can be called conference proceedings, symposium publications, workshop presentations, annual meeting papers, or any combination, but we're sure you get the idea.
