MAJOR UPDATE: 3 Aug 2016
(Split between contents lists and CogAff Project Overview)

WEB SITE CONTENTS
(Papers were originally grouped approximately by the date at which they were added to this directory. The policy is now changing: as time permits files will be grouped roughly by publication date, or date first made publicly available.)


Note on organisation

The files listed above contain indexes to files in the Cognition and Affect Project's Web directory. Each index lists files in reverse chronological order. However a paper published in one period may have been written in an earlier period and therefore listed in an earlier index. So publication dates are only an approximate guide to the order of entries in the lists.

There are now far more papers in the Cogaff directory than were originally envisaged when this scheme started. When I find time I shall try to organise grouping by topic, though that will not be easy because of the complex overlaps of topic.

Note: It seems that many of the items on this web site are also accessible via the
US OSTI eprints web site:

SEARCHING USING GOOGLE:

The papers and presentations listed here are not well organised.
Finding things may therefore be hard. A search engine can help.
Try using google with phrases like the following, with or without the addition of
'cogaff', 'bham', 'CoSy', etc.

CogAff Overview

A separate web page gives a high level overview of the Cogaff project and related projects.

It includes links to projects that overlap with CogAff, including, since 2004, collaborative projects in Cognitive Robotics (CoSy 2004-2008, CogX 2008-2012). Now too many to list here!


WARNING: BROKEN LINKS

Apology Despite warnings from academic staff the central university authorities decided in 2010 to reorganise campus web pages yet again, without taking action to ensure that references to old links are trapped and redirected.

As a result there are probably several broken links on this web site -- and on many other sites on this campus. Identifying and fixing them all will require massive effort for which resources are not available.


Short Cuts To Related Files

FORMATS OF PAPERS ON THE COGAFF WEB SITE

In the past many of the papers here were in compressed or uncompressed postscript format and indexes and unpublished documents were in HTML. Now the two main formats used are PDF and HTML, though there are also some plain text (.TXT) files.

Since about 2003, papers in postscript have not been added, since PDF is more widely accessible. The postscript papers may later be phased out, after all have been converted to PDF.

PDF versions of most files can be provided on request if not already available here. Email A.Sloman[AT]cs.bham.ac.uk with requests.

NOTE (16 Jun 1998): Compressed files which were previously in form xxx.Z are now in the form xxx.gz

PhD SUPERVISION

For information on how to apply to be a PhD or MSc student
(in Computer Science, Software Engineering, AI, or Cognitive Science)
in this School, see the School's study opportunities web page.

Please read that file information BEFORE writing to individuals asking for advice or information.
Please note: I do not deal with student admissions.
Being retired, I am also no longer able to supervise PhD students.
