Conference Publications Basics

Conference Publications Basics

Citations for conference publications should include the name of the organization that sponsored the conference, the location, and date of the conference. That information should be put in parentheses when it appears in a note but not when it is in the bibliography. The URL should be included if it is found online. This format can be used for conference sources such as proceedings, PowerPoint presentations, and poster presentations. Some indication of what the source is should also be included (e.g. a paper, PowerPoint presentation).
