Conference proceedings

Contributions to conference proceedings are not covered by the CERN Open Access Policy, owing to the vast variety of conferences and publication venues. No central funds are made available for covering open access to conference proceedings. Contributions by CERN Authors should be submitted to the CERN Document Server (CDS) or arXiv.org. Conference organisers who would like to publish entire volumes of conference proceedings open access are invited to contact us: @email. We can advise on existing cost-effective options through established publishers.
