My publications can also be viewed on my Google Scholar page.
Because my research is interdisciplinary, I publish across a variety of venues with different norms and conventions. In the interest of providing clear context for these publications, I'm experimenting with using the following symbols to give more information:

These are short (usually 2-page) summaries of research published (or to be published) elsewhere. They are generally held to the same (or sometimes slightly lower) peer-review standards as full papers submitted to the same venue.

For the time being, these are all work I have presented at Genetic Programming in Theory and Practice, a small, invitation-only conference where proceedings are published as book chapters following discussion and comments from other attendees.
