Publications

Here is the list of my publications, ordered by category and by year. Many of them are dowloadable. Readers should be aware of some of the issues raised by the electronic dissemination of published papers. In particular, readers should know that:

The documents contained in these directories are included by the contributing authors as a means to ensure timely dissemination of scholarly and technical work on a non-commercial basis. Copyright and all rights therein are maintained by the authors and by other copyright holders, notwithstanding that they have offered their works here electronically. It is understood that all persons copying this information will adhere to the terms and constraints invoked by each author's copyright. These works may not be reposted without the explicit permission of the copyright holder.

My institutions' policy is to increase the use of open archives, in full respect of all copyright holders' right. I have  therefore progressively made my publications, first and foremost the most recent ones, available through HAL, a French platform partaker of the international Open Archives initiative. My papers are registered through the HAL-INRIA interface to HAL, but they are also accessible through the standard interface, of course. To find out about publisher copyright policies & self-archiving rules, I refer to the SHERPA/RoMEO service and do my best to comply with the publisher policies as deciphered by this service.

You can also check my publications registered through HAL, my publications referenced by DBLP, or my publications as seen by Google Scholar
