Publications of Longhai Li's Research Team
This page lists the publications of my research group. They include journal/conference articles, technical reports, talk slides, software packages, and some student theses that contain original research results. Trainees are marked with *. Since 2019, I will probably stop updating this page. For newer publications from my team, please visit my google scholar page, my zotero page, or my researchgate page.
