Papers are listed by topic. They are listed in reverse chronological order under any given topic heading. If a paper has appeared at a conference and in a journal, then the journal citation is listed and the conference is mentioned briefly, often without giving the full proceedings citation.  Journal titles, trade magazine titles, and conference proceedings titles are all listed in italic typeface. A number of recent conference papers are available electronically in .pdf format, though journal versions are generally only available via link to the journal's web page. The electronically available version of a paper will normally be the conference version.
