Refereed Conference Papers

This section lists work that was published in conference proceedings which use a peer-review system to approve submitted work. While this may not be typical for all disciplines, it is the norm in Computer Science and Engineering. Further, because of the rapid progress of technology, conference proceedings are often more important for our discipline than journal articles.
