Recently I presented part of my thesis to an international conference. This is the most original and pioneering part of my thesis.
The question is 'is there a commitment for researchers to publish their work in conference proceedings, or this is optional'? Is it rude not to publish in the conference proceedings after presenting at the conference? What do you think?
For instance, I may select to publish the same paper in an academic journal instead... or as a book, when I publish my thesis. If yes, do I have to email the conference committee and explain that I will be publishing my paper somewhere else? What if I offer to publish in the conference proceedings a note (i.e. a very short paper) on the topic instead?
Thanks in advance
I'm not sure what the status is in places like the US and the UK, but here in Australia, conference proceedings are no longer being considered towards your publication count.
If this is the same situation in the US/UK etc, I would actually avoid publishing in conference proceedings and instead incorporate the feedback from your presentation into your thesis and subsequent publications of that thesis (if you go journal article route). It's now not just how much you publish, but rather, how much of that is in high level journals.
