    proceedings of / from

    Hi!

    I'm not sure which proposition to use with "proceedings" in the following example:
    Proceedings from / of the National Congress of Medical Sciences.


    My guess is that proceedings of goes with institutions (Proceedings of the British Academy of Sciences) and proceedings from goes with conferences (Proceedings from the National Congress of Medical Sciences) but I'm not sure! Is there a difference


    Thanks for your time and help!

    I would use 'of'. I ran a search to check here: [DAVIES] Variation in English Words and Phrases (VIEW) and there were no examples of 'from' with a name.

    Re: proceedings of / from

    I find it quite strange that there was no examples of "from" there, because if you write "proceedings from" in google for instance and search only .uk web pages (just to be sure ), there will be many examples of proceedings from + name of the workshop/conference etc., whereas "of" will be found with certain societies, associations. But not exclusively :-/
    Puzzled... What now?
