Files available from the COLT Bibliography

The following files are available from this site.

  1. colt.bib.gz.
    This is the gzipped bibtex file. If you do unzip it ( command: gunzip colt.bib.gz ) then you will have a file colt.bib which is a LaTeX bibliography file.
  2. coltbib.tex.
    This is a short tex file. If you have the colt-bib file in a file named colt.bib, and you latex coltbib.tex then you will get a file that, if printed out, would have every entry as they would appear in a bibliography. You probably do not want to print this out, but you might want to preview it.
  3. coltbib.ps.gz.
    This is the gzipped file that when unzipped ( command: gunzip coltbib.ps.gz ) is a postscript file that contains all the entries as they would appear in a bibliography. You may preview this file or print it out.
  4. coltbib.dvi.gz.
    This is the gzipped file that when unzipped ( command: gunzip coltbib.dvi.gz ) is a dvi file that contains all the entries as they would appear in a bibliography. You may preview this file or print it out. This file conatins the same information as the coltbib.ps file but is much smaller.
  5. coltbib.pdf.
    This is a PDF file that contains all the entries as they would appear in a bibliography. You may preview this file or print it out. This file conatins the same information as the coltbib.ps file.
  6. authority.
    This file contains the conventions that we use in naming conferences and journals in the bibliography file. (e.g. FOCS conference is referred to by Proc. Nth Annu. IEEE Sympos. Found. Comput. Sci.) You should look into this file before submitting new entries to the COLT bibliography.
  7. pick
    - a tool for looking through the bib.

Probably, the file you will be working with the most is colt.bib . You are encouraged to use it actively, make additions and corrections, and send the changes to

mailtool < thomas @ ist . hokudai . ac .jp>

for integration into a new revision.

After unpacking the file you should preserve the original bibliography source file of colt.bib in some read-only form (called oldcolt.bib, say) and make a writeable copy for your actual changes. Later on, you should mail me your changes by emailing me either entries that are not in the file or updated versions of entries that are in the file.

Details of HOW TO SUBMIT are provided.


This page is updated whenever new information is available. In particular, an update will be provided before the final versions for the summer conferences (COLT, ICML,...) and the winter conference (ALT) are due.
