Phillip Lord's publications

Following is a largely complete list of my paper and conference publications. There is also a list of my appearances in the popular press, my programme committees, invited talks and so on. I have removed most of the venue of publication from these pages; if you want to know how good the papers are, I would suggest that you read them. These lists are also available as part of a [pdf] file, or as a [bib] file.

From 2012, all papers here will be published in my Journal and arXiv. These should be considered to be the canonical versions, as these versions are produced and checked by the authors; versions published elsewhere are secondary, and only for advertising and research assessment.

These pages are produced with Emacs Muse and a hacky Makefile.
