How to write a reference: Conference paper

Conference papers are written in a similar way, however, 

  1. We add "In" before the name of the conference.
  2. The name of the conference should be italic.
  3. Pages numbers are preceeded by pp. with parentheses.

For example,

 

Ali, M., & Treadue, J. (2016). A new technique for solving a signal processing problem. In International Conference on Communications (ICC), (pp. 300-302).

As before, however

  1. Title of book is italic.
  2. Publisher name replaces the journal title or the conference name.
  3. We can also add the country/city of the publisher before the name of the publisher.
