This list of journals and conferences is closely in line with the main research directions of the Lab. It is not meant to be comprehensive but should be used as a guideline for ranking publications. All postgraduate students are highly encouraged to have their work published in reputable sources. More specifically, each student is expected to have one journal paper or one conference paper in the "Prestigious" category before proceeding to the submission stage. Alternatively, no less than two conference papers are required with at least one in the "Good" category. Publications in other places are NOT accredited without explicit acknowledgement from their advisors.
