Recent Research Publications

In Computer Science, the reputation of conferences often exceeds the reputation of journals, with strict peer-review guidelines and a typical acceptance rate of 20% of submitted papers. Below is a list of conferences I was involved in as author, keynote speaker, editor or PC member. The list includes abbreviations, full name, a description, and Impact factors or CORE conference ratings[^8] given in parentheses. The highest rating (A*) is awarded to only 7% of conference venues. The ratings are based on acceptance rate, H-index of program committee and H-index of researchers publishing at these venues.

List of conferences I participate in, the communities they address, and CORE conference ratings.

It is customary in my field that the first author is the main contibuting student, while the last author is the senior author who is funding the student. To be more precise, I annotate my role in publication preparation as follows:


Advisor to UNH students who are first authors.

External Advisor:

Advisor to external students who are first authors.rformed.


Primary author of a paper based on work performed independent of students.


Coauthor with equal contribution of a paper based on work of external students or collaborators.


Collaborator/coauthor on a paper primarily written by external students or collaborators.
