Basic rules

A reference to a paper published in conference proceedings in a list of works cited includes the following elements: name(s) of the author(s), title of the paper, title of the proceedings, data of the editor(s), publisher, year of publication, and pages used. The title of the proceedings can include information on location and date of the conference.

For a source available online, the link to the web resource (URL) and the date of access should also be given at the end of the reference.

If the conference proceedings had been published before the year 1900 or if the publisher’s location should be given due to the fact that it is not well-known or has offices in several cities, the city of publication is also indicated in the reference before the publisher’s name.
