Useful information about the search feature
The inter-conference search includes the full conference data since 1997 as well as the titles, author names, and affiliations of all plenary and invited talks since 1963.
As search results either a list of conferences or a list of contributions is shown, depending on the search restrictions made. If it was limited by conference year, city, and/or part only, a list of conferences occurs. As soon as further restrictions are made, like the full text search, search for author names or presenting authors, title or contribution type, a list of contributions is returned.
For the contribution types a set of common cathegories have been defined for the inter-conference search, namely plenary talks, invited talks, contributed talks, and posters. The existing classification have been mapped to those types, if possible, but in some rare cases the contribution types have been applied individually.
