Full Proceedings have been published for all the ESTAC conferences and these are listed in Table 3 . With the exception of the first two Symposia, these have been published in special editions of the specialist thermal analysis
The following article presents the importance of the service of documents instituting civil proceedings as well as the relevant Hungarian and European Union legislation. The author covers the formal requirements of the service of documents, the claims brought against defendants, the subsequent stages of proceedings and the issue of providing adequate information on potential legal consequences.

Scientific meetings have become increasingly important channels for scholarly communi-cation. In several fields of applied
and engineering sciences they are - according to the statements of scientists active in those fields - even more important
than publishing in periodicals. One objective of this study is to analyse the weight of proceedings literature in all fields
of the sciences, social sciences and humanities as well as the use of the ISI Proceedings database as additional data source
for bibliometric studies. The second objective is exploring the use of a further important feature of this database, namely,
of information about conference location for the analysis of bibliometrically relevant aspects of information flow such as
the relative attractivity, the extent of mobility and unidirectional or mutual affinity of countries.

The status of conference proceedings was not evaluated as much as that of journal papers in past years. Godin ( 1998 ) noted reasons for the
In September 2008 Thomson Reuters added to the ISI Web of Science (WOS) the Conference Proceedings Citation Indexes for Science
and for the Social Sciences and Humanities. This paper examines how this change affects the publication and citation counts
of highly cited computer scientists. Computer science is a field where proceedings are a major publication venue. The results
show that most of the highly cited publications of the sampled researchers are journal publications, but these highly cited
items receive more than 40% of their citations from proceedings papers. The paper also discusses issues related to double-counting,
i.e., when a given work is published both in a proceedings and later on as a journal paper.
This short research/policy note raises theoretical issues linked with the way multilingual proceedings of the European Parliament are to be recorded, especially in view of proposals to move from translated transcripts to web-published unrevised simultaneous interpretations, and possibly to transcribe them. A more active role of language professions in setting out the practical and theoretical pro’s and con’s of different options is called for.

This study does a bibliometric analysis based on keywords of conference proceedings. Scientometric investigations of conference
proceedings are a new and innovative, not very common approach. The studies and papers presented may be interpreted as early
indicators of scientific development. The Academy of International Business (AIB) was chosen for being the leading organization
for studies in international business with contributions covering a 3-year period (2006–2008). The study presents the general
structure of current scholarly interest in international business studies, clusters the keywords and reflects details on the
focused research areas of the papers analyzed. The bibliometric analysis indicates three clusters: the core, the semi-periphery
and the periphery. The five most occurring keywords were found to be multinational enterprise, emerging markets, foreign direct
investment, internationalization and knowledge management in descending order. The analyses focus on concepts building the
core (in total ten keywords), the semi-periphery which is coined by performance and related topics (60 keywords) and the periphery
of the studies with governance and specific facets of it (199 keywords).
