This week someone noted a number of broken external links — as usual, the external sites changed how they arranged links to papers (and they did not use the DOI link method the first time) so that the initial link to papers was broken. So, after some work a bunch of external links now go to the right place (at least until the journal decides to change things once again, though I was able to get some more DOI links out of the change).
In the continuing effort to keep file sizes within the typical search engine limit, some sections have been divided. There are several large sections of papers that have no simple split, but others will be dealt with in the future.
Other than these corrections, there are few changes in the newest version.
There were 2 updates this week — the first had the changes in references due to adding some missing conferences. The second was to address some issues that were flagged as negatives for search engines. In a month I can check to see whether those changes have any real effect.
Springer continues to be hard to track new conferences — while their system says there are more listed the so-called most recent one does not change. I can only hope that I am not missing any conferences they publish, but it will be very hard to know whether that is the case.
The regular major monthly journal update was completed this week. A number of fall conferences will appear once they are available from IEEE (mostly) or Springer – though with Springer it may be difficult to tell whether they appear or not (their new web site is a step down in usability from their old web site — an example of designers triumphing over users).
It is the holiday season, a lot of publishers are slow to update their listings, so not a lot of change.
Springer continues to have problems with their new web site — the essential problem is that sorting of entries does not sort as claimed. This makes it impossible to find new entries for proceedings on the new web site (and the entries on the old site are no longer updated). It does seem that some additions after the conversion are sorted to the most recent, but any entry before the conversion is totally random when sorted. It took several emails to finally get this point across, but it has been acknowledged as a clear error and may eventually be fixed (or just swept under the rug as not relevant to most people).
Updates are slow right now. But the new (improved?) Springer web site may make updates for Springer publications impossible.
The site claims sorting by publication date, but after the year, the sort is basically random (not conference date, not publication date, not alphabetical, just hundreds of items in some secret order).
Their designers must have gone to the Windows school of User Interface design (not a W8 user, especially after the review that said in was fair for tablets, and a disaster for desktops). Why take something simple and make it difficult?
Most journals have new entries in November. Several journals are starting on 2013 volumes.
The big ICIP and ICPR updates will come after they are posted by IEEE.
The bibliography has been updated after a long vacation (hit New England with peak colors in many areas). The primary update this week is the inclusion of ECCV. Journal updates for the past month will be next.
Bibliography updates are running behind due to vacation, but the conference listing was kept up during this time.
ECCV will be available soon.
Summer has vacations and a few conferences. This current update includes the ISPRS World Congress papers — a lot of papers. September brings more conferences.
