Submitting conference proceedings under HAL via

A tool developed by the CCSD (CNRS)
Launched at the end of 2010.

SciencesConf is an application designed to provide and centralise all the computing tools required by participants and organisers of conferences dedicated exclusively to the Higher Education and Research community. All of these tools are accessible via a dedicated web platform hosted by the CCSD (Centre pour la Communication Scientifique Directe), which guarantees its sustainability.

The interoperability of SciencesConf with an archive opened in HAL is ensured, allowing contributors to automatically transfer proceedings submitted to SciencesConf or to create a collection from their conference. If you use SciencesConf you can submit conference proceedings under HAL by simply following these steps:
