The most valuable resource are conference publications (also called "papers"). A large majority of interesting (and high-quality) papers are available via one of the following digital libraries (free access for students of HS Augsburg, see below):
- ACM Digital Library (ACM = Association for Computing Machinery)
- IEEE Xplore Digital Library (IEEE = Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers).
While on campus of "Hochschule Augsburg" and while connected to our wireless network you can download any paper from the above libraries for free. You can even access this service from home if you follow the instructions from the HSA library pages.
