What are conference proceedings?

The collection of academic papers presented at a convention, meeting or conference.

Selected Conference proceedings

SAE digital library

The SAE digital library indexes citations and document summaries of books, standards, journal articles, conference papers, etc. on mobility research worldwide.
Subject areas include engines, safety, electronics and materials, and in particular passenger car, off-highway, truck and bus, manufacturing and aerospace engineering.
The Monash subscription includes full-text access to the 18,000+ technical papers published by the Society of Automotive Engineers from 1998 to date. There are some technical papers included in this period which SAE does not have the right to publish, also citations and documents summaries of books, standards, journal articles, conference papers from other publishers.

As of August 2011, "The SAE Digital Library has been redesigned to streamline and target your research for trusted content with a simple, efficient interface, one-click cross referencing". SAE Digital Library User Guide is available.

Some earlier SAE papers (published between 1911 and 2005) are held in print at Hargrave-Andrew Library (see a separate box below 'Monash holdings for SAE technical papers published between 1911 and 2005').

SAE International

The SAE International website offers users to search their publications.
