Bibtex Bibliographies


This list contains a set of bibliographies in Bibtex format. Currently there are over 1800 references in 55 conferences, mostly in architecture, compilers, languages, and parallel processing.
[NEW!] ICS'93, MICRO-22, POPL'87-89 (see below)
[NEW!]The complete bibliography is now available in one file (see below).
Each self-contained file contains the bibliography for one conference. Such a file may be used by including its root name in a LaTeX \bibliography command. Alternately, the entire bibliography is available in one compressed file, with entries sorted by keys. This file also contains individual entries which are not in the other files, e.g., papers from conferences which have not been entered entirely into this database.

All conference entries use Bibtex crossrefs. The crossref for an individual conference is at the end of the file for that conference. If you don't want to use crossrefs, or only want a few items from a file, click here for a c-shell script to convert these files to non-crossref format.

Author lists come from the title pages of the papers. Standard capitalization rules are used for the titles. Special characters (accents, umlauts, Greek letters, mathematical symbols, etc.) have been included wherever possible. The maximum line length is 80. Continuation lines begin with a tab.

Keys are formed by concatenating the full surname of the first author (spaces removed) and the first three letters of the main part of the surname of each remaining author. Special characters (accents, apostrophes, etc.) are not included in keys, except hyphens. If there are more than three authors, the first author's surname is followed by "EtAl". The key is followed by the last two digits of the document's year.

This system, while causing keys to be longer than in other bibliography files, reduces the number of duplicate keys. If duplicate keys exist, they are made unique by adding the suffix ".2", ".3", etc. Each key is unique across all bibliographies, so the presence of a suffix indicates that another paper by the same authors in the same year is in another bibtex file.

We have made every effort to ensure the correctness of these entries, but we accept no responsibility for the consequences of any errors. Please e-mail corrections to doc-info@acaps.cs.mcgill.ca

ASPLOS - International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems

These bibliographies were created by modifying bibliographies created by Preston Briggs and Steve Carr. The original files are available at Rice University and have self-contained entries (each entry contains complete information about the proceedings rather than using crossrefs).

HPCA - International Symposium on High-Performance Computer Architecture

ICS - International Conference on Supercomputing

ISCA - International Symposium on Computer Architecture

Bibliographies for 10-20 were created by modifying ISCA bibliographies in Refer/bib format created by Julie Fingerson and Mark D. Hill at the University of Wisconsin. Refer/bib is a raw ASCII (non-LaTeX) format in which fields are placed on separate lines. Some of their more recent listings also contain abstracts.

IWDC - International Workshop on Dataflow Computing

These workshops were held in conjunction with ISCA. Papers presented were later revised and published in book form.

MICRO - Annual International Symposium on Microarchitecture

PACT - Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques

PLDI - ACM SIGPLAN Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation

Bibliographies from '88 to '94 were created by modifying bibliographies created by Preston Briggs and Steve Carr. The original files are available at Rice University and have self-contained entries (each entry contains complete information about the proceedings rather than using crossrefs).

POPL - ACM SIGPLAN-SIGACT Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages

Created by modifying bibliographies created by Preston Briggs and Steve Carr. The original files are available at Rice University and have self-contained entries (each entry contains complete information about the proceedings rather than using crossrefs).

These are in bibtex format but may use different conventions, and some of the keys may conflict with keys used in the bibliographies above.

Standardized LaTeX files for conferences

ACM

If you are writing a paper for an ACM conference (ICS, SPAA, STOC, etc.), there is a "recommended" style file that automatically sets up the proper fonts and page dimensions. We have a version which has been patched for LaTeX2e.

One useful feature of this file is a "preprint" option, which allows you to create an alternate "preprint" or "reprint" version of the same document by changing only one line of the source file. A sample top-level LaTeX file using this style file might look something like this:

\documentstyle[preprint]{acmconf}
\begin{document}
\setcounter{page}{20}
\title{\bf \coverbox{1.4cm}{.85in}{4.9in}{\footnotesize In the Proceedings
of the ..., pp. 20-30.}My Wonderful Article in ACM Format}
\author{...}
\toappearbox{\tiny \acmcopy{1995}}
\maketitle
...

The \coverbox and \toappearbox macros are ignored if the option [preprint] is removed from the first line, and you will get camera-ready copy. If the [preprint] is included, \coverbox will add a box above the title containing the text given by the fourth argument. Use the first three arguments to control the vertical position, horizontal position (negative offset allowed), and the width of the box, respectively. Make sure there are no spaces between the brace closing the last argument of \coverbox and the first word of the actual title, or else the position of the title will be affected. The text in the \toappear command appears in a box placed in the 1-inch space normally left empty in the camera-ready copy. The \acmcopy command generates the ACM copyright notice as stipulated in the April 1995 issue of CACM (page 105). The [preprint] option also adds page numbers, beginning with the page number specified by the \setcounter command. The proper use of these commands will not affect layout of the original text. The preprint version and the camera-ready copy should be pixel-for-pixel identical except for the extra text.

There are some other features. See the comments in the file for more details.

IEEE

We also have IEEE conference definition files (used by all IEEE conferences). They are the same as the file at ftp.wpi.edu cited in the IEEE Author Guidelines, but we have split that file into a macro file and a text template to allow sharing of the macro definitions. We have also added the macro \coverbox for generating a reprint box and \ieeecopy for generating an IEEE copyright message. See the template file for an example of their use.
