How to find Conference Proceedings
Conference proceedings are an integral, but hard to find, part of the engineering literature.
The Library obtains complete proceedings packages from five engineering societies: ACM (Association for Computing Machinery), ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers), ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers), IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), and SPIE. Look at the box to the left on how to find proceedings from these societies.
You can look for proceedings sponsored by another other group as follows:
- Copy the name of the conference, minus the year, number and location.
- Search in WorldCat for the name.
- Some libraries enter every annual conference separately, others enter all of them togehter (e.g., some libraries will have one entry for all ICASSP meetings, while others will have separate entries for ICASSP 2010, ICASSP 2011, etc.). Look through the search results as there will likely be multiple entries for your particular meeting.
- Portland State will not hold many of these proceedings, if we do not have the one you're looking for you can do an interlibrary loan request for the meeting you are looking for.
- Compendex (Historical)Historical access to citations and abstracts for engineering and the applied sciences from 1884-1969.
Compendex does an excellent job indexing papers presented at conferences.
- InspecPICMET proceedings are indexed in this database.
