Conference proceedings are the published collection of papers that are presented at a conference. Conference proceedings may be published in a variety of formats, including print, online, or digital download. They are usually produced after a conference has taken place and are intended to provide a record of the conference and to make the papers presented at the conference available to a wider audience. Conference proceedings may include a wide range of materials, such as abstracts of the papers presented, full-text versions of the papers, and any other materials related to the conference, such as keynote speeches and panel discussions. Conference proceedings are an important resource for researchers and are often used as a way to disseminate new research findings and ideas within a particular field.
