As a conference proceedings publisher, DEStech’s primary goal is to produce and deliver on time a high quality, error-free, attractively designed proceedings at a reasonable cost to your group, society, association, or organization.
DEStech’s staff has over 90 years of collective experience in the design, production and delivery of proceedings for conferences and organizations. We work with Executive Directors, Meetings Managers, Publications Directors, and Professors in producing high-quality conference proceedings in print, electronic form or online form, and make this information available as either a preprint or postprint.
DEStech Publications offers an array of conference proceedings services designed to make your conference publication a success at every stage from manuscript preparation to finished product – and we give you the opportunity to track your job’s progress along the way (providing weekly e-mail updates from the beginning of the project through delivery). Most importantly, DEStech will design and produce your proceedings in the manner that works best for you – as a bound book, CD-ROM, Flash Drive or online with password protection – or any combination of these.

Author & Presenter Guidelines
We provide author and presenter guidelines for delivery of papers via email, on disk, and FTP, using custom or standard guidelines to match your publications trim size or electronic media. These guidelines help presenters prepare papers for easy reproducibility and consistency within the publication – and helps the organizers ensure they receive materials on time and in the intended format. We will work with you to set and meet deadlines with less strain on you and your staff.
Marketing & Sales of your Conference Proceedings (optional)
After the conference, DEStech Publications will advertise and promote your proceedings publication to specialists in the technical field presented, take sales orders, warehouse and fulfill all orders, and return royalties from all sales to your organization.
Conference Proceedings & Book Publishing
Professional book design and layout of a conference book is DEStech’s area of expertise. DEStech will create pages with folios and running heads or foot heads, and design a professional format for both the main body of the text and the front matter of your proceedings volume.
- Typesetting – when presenter material is not camera-ready or supplied on disk, DEStech Publications can keystroke and format papers, ensuring a uniform look to the finished document.
- Proofreading – DEStech specialists compare finished pages to original manuscript and titles and names for Indices and Contents to ensure accuracy and consistency.
- Book cover – we can design an attractive cover using whatever specifications you provide in one- to four-color.
- Printing and binding – DEStech Publications produces and manufactures hardcover and soft cover books, printed via conventional ink presses or toner-based digital quality. Moreover, we do so within a matter of weeks.
- Delivery – insured and tracked delivery of proceedings and other materials to your designated site.
Digital Media (CD-ROMs, USBs)
DEStech Publications will help your organization format and place your meeting presentations on a handsomely packaged CD-ROM and/or USB Flash Drive.
Our staff can create an attractive, user-friendly CD-ROM with extensive internal linking to ensure full searchability of all presentations, indices, and contents. In contrast to many CD-ROM/USB “producers,” DEStech Publications has the resources to enhance your proceedings by creating a CD-ROM/USB that enables readers to find and pursue easily identified and retainable threads of information regarding subject matter, bibliographic references, and authors.
DEStech performs 13 standard functions when developing your CD/USB Master and offer several options for more enhanced functions – all at a reasonable cost. These standard functions enable end users to easily navigate and search the CD-ROM/USB.
Finally, DEStech designs and produces attractive CD-ROM/USB labels and CD packaging to ensure a professional look for your product, and we can produce and supply from a CD/USB Master to any quantity of mass produced CD-ROMs/USBs.
Online Purchasing & Website Services
DEStech’s staff can place your meeting proceedings on a secure website with password protection to ensure 24/7 access to your members. We will suggest ways to format and link your proceedings documents and place them on your website for access by members or for a per article fee to non-members to help you earn additional revenue from your conference members.
Fulfillment, Delivery and Archiving
DEStech provides individual or group fulfillment services, which includes delivering the publications to meeting sites, or to the individuals who attended the conference.
