Every question/request concerning the publications that are there should be sent to

This small document is intended to have all the information that the members of Mascotte need to know for keeping their publications up to date.

There are some important remarks concerning the informations that are sent, which are listed below.

Only in exceptional cases some of those basic fields may be left blank (for example, if the publication is to appear, or depending of the type of article).

OPTx-editorial-board={}

OPTx-proceedings={}

OPTx-international-audience={}

That are to be filled depending of the case with "yes" or "no".

sorte = "rev-int", for a international journal

sorte = "rev-nat", for a national journal

sorte = "conf-int", for a international conference with an editorial board

sorte = "conf-nat", for a national conference with an editorial board

sorte = "inv-conf", for a conference invitation

sorte = "conf-sa", for a conference without proceedings (ex: JGA, EURO)

sorte = "livres-chap", for a book, or book chapter

sorte = "livres-edit", for a edited book

sorte = "logiciels", for a software

sorte = "brevets", for a patent

sorte = "these", for a thesis

sorte = "HDR", for an HDR(Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches)

sorte = "Rapports", for repports

I am responsible for verifying your publications before putting in the site of the project, which means that I should notify you and fix mistakes in the references you send.

But I may not be able to verify every single piece of information that is in your references, or to find a way to discover the missing fields.

@article{OSF10,

author = {Barack Obama and LULA da Silva and Somebody FromTheTeam},

title = {On graph models for real problems around the world},

booktitle = {Proceedings of the 1st Conference of the presidents of the world},

}

I could made a lot of deductions from the informations that are given.

Since I know the nationality of the authors, I could properly fill the field x-pays making x-pays = {US, BR}.

I could put the field sorte = "conf-int", since it is an international conference, and so on...

But then, it will consume a lot of my time to put this reference in the site. And it is very likely that I will commit mistakes and put wrong information in it, what is very bad for the team.

@article{BCG+10,

author = {J-C. Bermond and C. J. Colbourn and L. Gionfriddo and G. Quattrocchi and I. Sau},

title = {Drop Cost and Wavelength Optimal Two-Period Grooming with Ratio 4},

journal = {SIAM Journal on Discrete Mathematics},

year = {2010},

volume = {24},

number = {2},

pages = {400-419},

abstract = { We study grooming for two-period optical networks, a variation of the traffic grooming problem for WDM ring networks introduced by Colbourn, Quattrocchi, and Syr otiuk. In the two-period grooming problem, during the first period of time there is all-to-all uniform traffic among $n$ nodes, each request using $1/C$ of the bandwidth; and during the second period, there is all-to-all uniform traffic only among a subset $V$ of $v$ nodes, each request now being allowed to use $1/C'$ of the bandwidth, where $C' < C$. We determine the minimum drop cost (minimum number of ADMs) for any $n,v$ and $C=4$ and $C' \in \{1,2,3\}$. To do this, we use tools of graph decompositions. Indeed the two-period grooming problem corresponds to minimizing the total number of vertices in a partition of the edges of the complete graph $K_n$ into subgraphs, where each subgraph has at most $C$ edges and where furthermore it contains at most $C'$ edges of the complete graph on $v$ specified vertices. Subject to the condition that the two-period grooming has the least drop cost, the minimum number of wavelengths required is also determined in each case.},

OPTx-editorial-board={yes},

OPTx-proceedings={yes},

OPTx-international-audience={yes},

x-pays = {ES, IT, US},

}

In this case, instead of having to discover the missing fields by myself or by exchanging mails with you, I just need to verify if there are small mistakes and put the reference in the default format for the site.

Thanks for making my job easier!
