Publications

You can find my Google Scholar Citations here. However, before proceeding, please bear in mind the following notes from another Prof. Wei Wang:

So far, no system (Google Scholar, DBLP, MS Academic Search, Arnetminer, CiteSeerX, or DBLife) can disambiguate publications of dozens of “Wei Wang” well. This is dubbed the Wei Wang challenge in DBLP.

Note on the author list: Underlined are students/interns working with me.
