Conferences and Meetings

Editor: Editor(s) of the conference proceedings; last name first, followed by up to two initials. Place family designations of rank after the initials, without punctuation and convert Roman numerals to Arabic ordinals; e.g., DeVita VT Jr, Jones JG 2nd.

Title: Title of a book as it appears in the original document. Only the first word and proper nouns are capitalized in book titles.
Title of Conference: Name of the conference, including number, if present, e.g., “3rd Symposium on Human Nutrition.” All numbers are converted to Arabic, e.g., convert “Second” to “2nd” or “III” to “3rd.” Capitalize all significant words.
Date of Conference: Inclusive dates on which the conference was held, in the format year, month, beginning day, hypen, ending day. For example: “2005 Mar 20-24 or 1987 Jan 31-Feb 2.” English names are used for months; names of months may be abbreviated to the first three letters.
Place of Conference: City and state/country in which the conference was held; English names are used for locations, as “Rome” for “Roma.” Names of states/countries may be abbreviated according to accepted standards.
Place of Publication: Follow US and Canadian cities with the two-letter abbreviation (in parentheses) for the state or province to avoid confusion when citing lesser known cities or when cities in different locations have the same name, such as Palm Springs (CA) and Palm Springs (FL); is it not necessary to give the state or province when it is obvious, e.g, Washington, Montreal, Philadelphia. Follow cities in other countries with the name of the country, either written out or as the two-letter ISO country code ; e.g., Nairobi (KE), Berne (Switzerland). Use the anglicized form for a non-US city, such as Vienna for Wien. If more than one location appears, use the more prominent or the first appearing. If no place is found in the book but can be reasonable inferred (e.g., Chicago as the place of publication of a book produced by the American Medical Association), place the name in brackets. If no place can be determined, put “place unknown” in brackets.
Publisher: The firm or organization responsible for issuing the publication; names appearing in non-roman alphabets are Romanized or names may be translated, as “Tokyo: Medikaru Rebyusha.” The publisher is the firm or organization responsible for issuing the publication. If a division or other part of the organization appears, it is listed with the organization in hierarchical order from highest to lowest, e.g., “University of Pennsylvania, Institute of Health Economics.” A publisher’s name may be given in a shortened form, as “Wiley” for “John Wiley & Sons.” Common words such as Company and University may be abbreviated. If the organization is both author and publisher, the name used for the publisher may be abbreviated; e.g., “The University” or “The Association.” If no publisher can be identified, put “publisher unknown” in brackets.
Year of publication: The year of publication, followed by the month, if given, as “2001 Jan.” English names are used for months; names of months may be abbreviated to the first three letters; if no date can be found in the publication but it can be determined from some other source, brackets are placed around it, as “[2001 Jan]”; if no dated can be determined, the words “date unknown” are placed in brackets.

If no year of publication is found in the book but it can be determined from some other source, place brackets around it, e.g., [1988]. If no date can be determined, put “date unknown” in brackets.

Proceedings of the 10th International Congress of EMG and Clinical Neurophysiology;

1995 Oct 15-19; Kyoto, Japan. Amsterdam: Elsevier; 1996.

(Here Kyoto is the location of the conference; Amsterdam the publication place.)
