Microsoft Libra

I stumbled upon this Libra search, looks like it is the Microsoft version of Google Scholar.

It has a good breakdown on computer science fields, the conferences in each field, the number of publications in the search and their number of citations.

Here are links to Peter, Amitava, and myself.

The browse by author feature is pretty cool. A straight fight of citation. Andrew Zisserman is at the top of computer vision, followed by Faugeras!

Italy here I come

The long anticipated email finally came today at 3:30pm WST. It was supposed to be announced on 1 May, and I thought my paper is rejected because I didn't get the "notification of acceptance" on the date.

Congratulations - your paper #1569032579 ('Projective Transformations for Image Transition Animations') for International Conference on Image Analysis and Processing 2007 has been accepted for ICIAP 2007 Oral Session.


Yes! My second paper (yes,only) is accepted. I'm so happy!
ICIAP is a 2nd tier conference according to CORE ranking of ICT conferences. And it'll be in Italy which is somewhere I have never really thought of setting my foot on before. Oh well, I never really think of going particularly anywhere anyway. Haha!

The conference will be on 10-14 Sept 2007, held in the Palazzo Ducale (dated 1634 DC, Baroque Ducal Palace) in Modena "the capital of engines" as it is the home of many famous sports car manufacturers (eg. Ferrari). A tourist page of Modena is here.

Searching and reading about the touristy places makes me excited.
