A conference says on its call for papers website that: "papers will be part of the Conference Proceedings (if the authors wish to do so), but they will not be uploaded to IEEE Xplore." -- What does this mean exactly? If I agree for it to be in the proceedings then will I be able to find it using the ISBN of the conference? Will it have a DOI (I highly doubt, but still wanted to know)?

Thank you in advance. I appreciate your time and consideration.

    Perhaps you should ask someone with the conference? Seems specific to them. – user24098 May 18 '17 at 12:43

    I'm voting to close this question, because it's impossible for us to say in which form the organizers of said conference will (or will not) publish their proceedings. – lighthouse keeper May 18 '17 at 13:25
  • Is it a conference with maybe IEEE Technical sponsorship but not an IEEE endorsed and sponsored conference? – o4tlulz May 20 '17 at 5:01
