Conference paper: published online [from Electronic source using Vancouver]
This format applies to conferences, meetings and symposia.
If the proceedings are published regularly, treat them as a periodical (journal).
The format to be used is much like that of a chapter in an edited book. Note the date and place of the conference is given before the publication details as the date details are different.
