I am writing a paper that builds on a previous work. The previous work has been accepted at a conference and will be published as part of the proceedings, but it hasn't been published yet. Do I just reference it using the standard format for referencing unpublished works or not?

  • Interesting question - with a journal article usually it's either "in review", "in press" (very brief these days) or out there... but with a conference paper that's accepted and waiting for the proceedings to come out... I'm curious as to the answers.

Either "Accepted for Intl. Conf. on Whatever, 2018", or "To appear in Proc. Intl. Conf. on Whatever, 2018", or "Intl. Conf. on Whatever, 2018, to appear".
