What is the difference between a "Conference Proceedings Article" and a "Conference Announcement"? My institution asks me to categorize my publications but I am not sure how I should do this.
Please let me explain: I understand that a "Conference Proceedings Article" is any full article that has been submitted, peer-reviewed, and accepted in a conference for oral or poster presentation and distributed by any means (i.e. printed edited proceedings' book, proceedings' e-book, CD, USB, online etc.) indexed in Scopus or not.
I understand that a "Conference Announcement" is any announcement that you make in a conference after a simple abstract's acceptance and without the requirement to submit a full paper (e.g. a powerpoint presentation, a poster without a full paper, etc.).
Am I correct or the difference lies in the medium of the proceedings? Could, for example, a full paper be considered a "Conference Announcement" just because the proceedings are not e.g. Scopus indexed or edited but distributed via CD or USB although the publication is a full peer-reviewed accepted paper considering also that nowadays anyone can get a doi for any publication?
There are scientific fields such as mine that all conferences require a full peer-reviewed paper to participate while other fields in which most conferences are about announcements, exchange of ideas etc. (e.g. in humanities etc.) and this is the reason I am confused, because in my scientific fields the distinction is not applicable... Am I correct?
