Conference papers or proceedings are communicated in a variety of ways using different sources, some unpublished, therefore can be difficult to find. They may be available online, included in a journal issue as a special issue or a supplement, or in a published book volume. If unpublished they may only be available from the authors themselves or on an author's website. In addition it may be difficult to discover when they are due to be published. Conference proceedings may also be available in different forms: abstracts, selected papers or complete proceedings.
The following terms are also used for conference papers or proceedings: meetings, symposia, seminars, colloquia, congresses, workshops, or conventions.
