How to Cite a Conference Presentation Using Harvard Style

Updated July 21, 2017

Reference Format

Harvard style citations for conference presentations should include the last name and first initial of the speaker followed by the year of presentation. The title of the presentation should be added using italics. Additionally, the title of the conference as well as date and location should be incorporated. An example of a completed Harvard style citation for conference presentations might be: Golden, A. 2014. The Evolution of Urban Literature from 2000-2014 (title in italics). International Librarians Exchange Annual Conference, 15 May, Johannesburg.
