Recently I have been attending a couple of conferences/workshops, presenting my latest results in oral and poster sessions. I really enjoyed doing that and the following live discussions.
However the proceedings of these conferences are not reviewed and for many people they do not count as "real" publications. I wouldn't like to stop going to conferences, discussing with people and collecting the visibility that arises from this, but on the other hand I also wouldn't like to waste my precious results in publications that are not seen as serious enough.
What is the best practice in this case?
I spoke with people saying that they do not even bother about writing workshop proceedings, but I don't feel quite comfortable with this approach.
My field is accelerator physics, especially machine design and beam dynamics simulations.
