Chicago style for conference proceedings

I’m wondering if the built in style guide for chicago (16th Author-Date) is wrong.  Endnote does not put quotation marks around a title, but all indications are that there should be.  Can anyone comment?

I only see quotes in the book Chapter or other 2ndary reference in the document you attached, and those are there in my version of Chicago16A?

the template for “Conference Proceedings” is the below - which  also has a “quoted” title, which is also close, but it appears the year needs to be moved up.  So you would edit the output style (Edit>Output style – Edit output style “Chicago 16A”  >Bibliography templates, and open the Conference proceedings template  – then move the “Year of Conference” up to infront of “Title.” and add a fullstop after it.     

It is now

Author. “Title.” Paper presented at the Conference Name|, Conference Location|, Date Year of Conference|.


Author. Year of Conference. “Title.” Paper presented at the Conference Name|, Conference Location|, Date|.

The | characters are  to ensure that random punctuation is not included if the field in a  record doesn’t contain any information.
