“The aim of the recommended practices white paper is to bring forward best practices that will help to ensure that high-quality, scholarly conference content continues to be developed, published, and disseminated within the global information community for its own ultimate benefit.” – IEEE conference quality press release

In 2015, Judy Salk, Director of Product Management, Content for Engineering Village served as a panelist for "Building Industry Standards for Ensuring Conference Content Quality" at the IEEE Panel of Conference Organizers (POCO) meeting in Glasgow, Scotland to discuss global standards for proceedings.  “We had been in discussion with various engineering publishers about conference content quality for several years, evolving, in particular, into a collaboration with IEEE and the Institution of Engineering and Technology, on a white paper describing best practices for the presentation and publication of high-quality scholarly conference content,” said Judy, “The objective and aspiration is for the guidelines we’ve written to be adopted by the international conference publishing community.” The end result is the collaborative White Paper on Ensuring Conference Content Quality, co-authored by Elsevier, IEEE, The IET and American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).

Authors of the white paper include Gordon MacPherson, William Moses, Adam Philippidis, Nancy Blair-DeLeon, (IEEE); Carey Chapman, Daniel Smith, Ian Stoneham, Kruna Vukmirovic (The IET); Judy Salk, Director of Product Management, Content for Engineering Village, Dr. Wim Meester, Head of Product Management, Content for Scopus (Elsevier); and Betsy Kulamer (ASCE).
