APA Citation Style, 7th edition: Conferences

Helpful Tip!

 Include the full run of the conference in the date section, not just the day of the presentation.

Conference Sessions, Papers, and Posters

Note: Conference sessions, papers, and posters all follow the same citation style. The only change is in the brackets following the title of the contribution, denoting the format. Use the description provided by the conference, e.g. [Poster presentation], [Key-note address], [Conference session], etc.
