Are conference papers reliable?
However, in some fields (e.g. computer and information science, public administration) major conferences are highly-regarded, the papers are strictly peer-reviewed, and the published proceedings are good sources. But since conference papers can have different levels of reliability you have to be careful.
What is a peer-reviewed conference?
Some fields only review and publish abstracts (e.g., medicine), in some fields conferences are more important than journal publications (e.g., computer science). But as a rule of thumb: a conference is only considered to be peer-reviewed when the full paper is reviewed, and not an (extended) abstract.
Are conference papers considered publications?
Most of the researchers publish their research articles in conference because its a faster way of making the results available. At many places, papers published as conference proceedings are not considered during promotion, on the other hand, at few places it is counted as publications but with less credits.
Can I submit the same paper to different conferences?
It is fine to present the same research at more than one conference. It is important to know that different audiences will give you different kinds of feedback. Certainly you should reframe each paper to match the focus of the particular conference. Likewise, change the title to reflect this specific reframing.
