I had a similar problem with the publication type but it seems
to work for me to drag and drop over Articles all the Periodicals
you want as Conference Proceedings and then it gives you the option
to change the type. You can even convert them once they are already
The conference input is used for the presentations and the
1) Select the publication you want
2) Click edit
3) On the top of the edit panel (above the title) select
4) There you will be able to add the Conference Title and City.
5) It will then automatically show in Conferences. Not immediately
though, usually it is shown next time you start Papers2
Thanks for the replies! I get your reply Georgios and it works.
I can't quite understand what Rhain wants to explain.
If I drag a article which' source type is a Periodical, I cannot
drop it into the Conference category. What am I supposed to drag,
and where am I supposed to drop it? Drag and drop would be great as
this would allow me to batch process stuff.
What Rhain is saying is basically that if you drag an article on
the Article section it will pop up a menu that will ask you what
type of article is this and there you can again select it to be
Proceeding and continue as I described above.
Is there another way to convert periodicals to conference? Why
can't we simply drag a periodical to conferences?
Indeed converting around a thousand periodicals to conferences by
changing the kind of each article is not feasible in

The correct way to convert a periodical to a conference is to
convert the associated paper to the right type. If you convert a
journal article to a conference proceeding, the journal will now be
converted to a conference.

Certainly correct for a dozen articles but for more than two thousand articles collected over several years of paper 1, this process is clearly not usable. In CS, we tend to have more conference articles than in other science community, it seems.
I liked a lot paper 1, paper 2 is not that bad BUT in my opinion you have forgotten those people like me that have huge library collected using paper 1. We clearly need more operation to act on a selection of papers rather than a paper...
More generally, I do not understand why so much operations seem to be limited to a single selection...

Fabien: note that you can convert a bunch of papers by dragging
them all into the category of your choice in the source list (e.g
Books for book chapters etc...) and Papes will then ask you the
subtype and will convert them all at once as well as the journals
into conferences for instance. Even if the papers are alreY
articles, you can still drag them into Articles and change the
subcategory this way.
