ESO Conference Proceedings 2.0 at Zenodo

In order to preserve a record of conferences and workshops and instead of compiling conference proceedings, the ESO Library & Information Centre would like to make presentation slides and posters available through Zenodo, a CERN-developed platform for permanent storage of digital content.

The main advantages of Zenodo are that the content will be

  • citable: Zenodo will assign DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) to all submissions
  • discoverable: the ESO Library will notify ADS about the conference “collection”, and they will harvest the metadata
  • archived: Zenodo will preserve the material permanently

PDFs of all talks and posters should be uploaded by the presenters to Zenodo under a Creative Commons Attribution Licence (CC-BY) which allows re-distribution and re-use of a licensed work on the condition that the creator is appropriately credited.

When you upload your contribution please use the latest version. Once a presentation is uploaded to Zenodo it will be indexed in the ADS (Astrophysics Data System) and is intended to be available permanently, so only final versions which are suitable for public distribution should be uploaded. More information about the privacy policy of Zenodo can be found at

ESO conferences at Zenodo is a complete list of all conferences with links to their webpages, Zenodo records and ADS records.
