Tag Clouds and Author Clouds

Get an overview of the publications in a bibliography by studying its author and tag clouds, which are now automatically generated for each bibliography. (You may want to refresh the cloud once in a while using the Refresh button at the bottom of the Publications tab.) For an example see the cloud for the Stratego/XT Bibliography.

In the future such clouds will also be generated for other lists, in particular an authors personal publication list.

Add papers to proceedings

Another new and convenient workflow. After adding a conference to the calendar, you can add proceedings for the conference using the ‘Add Proceedings’ button in the ‘Edit’ tab of the conference page. Using the ‘Add Paper’ tab you can then add the accepted papers to the proceedings, providing for each paper the list of authors, title, and page numbers.

Note that you can also use this procedure to add missing older conferences, by the way.

Add a conference in one step

While it is very easy and fun these days to shoot screencasts, when it is necessary to make a video about a user interface workflow, it is probably an indication that the workflow is too complex. The New Event tab of the conference calendar lets you create a new (edition of a) conference in one step with acronym and year. You can then configure the conference page with dates, call for papers, etc.
