Conference Proceedings

This listing includes established conferences and meetings that publish papers and presentation materials on their websites.  Please search the library’s  online catalog for other proceedings published in book or electronic format. Scholars often convert conference papers into journal articles, which can be identified through Google Scholar and online indexes like LISS. The index INSPEC includes proceedings in information sciences areas that overlap with computer science, where those proceedings are more central scholarly outputs. Some scholars make conference papers available on the Web through institutional repositories, like the UI’s IDEALS, or on their personal websites.
