Συνέδρια – Βάσεις Δεδομένων, Μηχανές Αναζήτησης Ι

Τα επιστημονικά συνέδρια αποτελούν κομμάτι της ακαδημαϊκής κοινότητας και λειτουργίας. Ανάλογα με το μέγεθός τους χωρίζονται σε συνέδρια και workshops (η κύρια διαφορά βέβαια των παραπάνω είναι ότι τα workshops είναι σαν “σχολεία” όπου γίνεται πρακτική επίδειξη κάποιας νέας τεχνικής, τεχνολογίας, κλπ). Μπορούν να είναι επιστημονικά συνέδρια γενικού ή εξειδικευμένου ακαδημαϊκού ενδιαφέροντος, μπορούν όμως να είναι και επαγγελματικά συνέδρια με συμμετοχή τόσων ακαδημαϊκών όσο και επαγγελματιών. Η ανακοίνωση της έναρξης, τοποθεσίας και θέματος του συνεδρίου και η πρόσκληση προς του συνέδρους για κατάθεση των εργασιών τους γίνεται με το “Call for Papers“.

An academic conference is a conference for researchers (not always academics) to present and discuss their work. Together with academic or scientific journals, conferences provide an important channel for exchange of information between researchers.
Generally, work is presented in the form of short, concise presentations lasting about 10 to 30 minutes, usually including discussion. The work may be bundled in written form as academic papers and published as the conference proceedings. Often there are one or more keynote speakers (usually scholars of some standing), presenting a lecture that lasts an hour or so, and which is likely to be advertised before the conference. Panel discussions, roundtables on various issues, workshops may be part of the conference, the latter ones particularly if the conference is related to the performing arts.

A large meeting will usually be called a conference, while a smaller is termed a workshop. They might be single track or multiple track, where the former has only one session at a time, while a multiple track meeting has several parallel sessions with speakers in separate rooms speaking at the same time.

Academic conferences fall into three categories:
the themed conference, small conferences organized around a particular topic;
the general conference, a conference with a wider focus, with sessions on a wide variety of topics. These conferences are often organized by regional, national, or international learned societies, and held annually or on some other regular basis.
the professional conference, large conferences not limited to academics, but with accademically-related issues

Conferences are usually organized either by a scientific society or by a group of researchers with a common interest. Larger meetings may be handled on behalf of the scientific society by a Professional Conference Organizer or PCO.
The meeting is announced by way of a “Call For Papers” or a Call For Abstracts, which lists the meeting’s topics and tells prospective presenters how to submit their abstracts or papers.
