The proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Compressors and their Systems have been published online by IOP Publishing.
The proceedings have been published as Volume 232 of IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering – an open access journal from IOP Publishing.
Materials Science and Engineering uses article numbers, so if you wish to cite a paper from these proceedings you will need to know the article number and the volume 232. For example:
Q Feng et al. New concept single screw compressors and their manufacture technology. Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Compressors and their Systems, 2017 IOP Conf. Ser.: Mater. Sci. Eng. 232 012001
(Please note, the numbers in the Book of Abstracts relate to the IOP file number which was provided before this went to print). The papers have since been arranged in sections which relate to the sections of the Book of Abstracts, so you will need to find the correct section to search for your paper).
