Welcome to Sd PhD
This is the PhD log site of Smilen Dimitrov (CV here).
In an attempt to handle increasing complexity, I have decided to use an online engine to collect information related to my PhD studies; the choice has fallen (for better or worse) on MediaWiki.
Primarily, this site is intended to collect:
- Articles and notes related to my PhD studies and project at Medialogy, AAUK.
- Articles and notes related to external projects and collaborations done during my PhD studies; including study visits, conference visits, and collaborations which do not necessarily directly relate to my PhD project (but may end up to).
- Notes related to teaching duties at Medialogy, AAUK.
- Notes related to computing tasks I have problems with.
As much as I appreciate the flat structure of a wiki, I am yet to find a suitable way to establish navigation hierarchies (or a decent blog-roll); therefore, the navigation here may be a bit unmanageable for a while. For now, you can click on some of the above categories... or check the news section for an automated list of recently updates pages.
Have a pleasant stay,
Few notes about this site
Note that you can change between several styles (skins) to view the site - see the menu below. Subcategories related to PhD should be accessible from the main navigation in most skins - however, in general the skins are incompatible between each other, and bugs are to be expected. (actually, the extra hacks needed for this site seem to eat up quite a lot of performance because of this - so that is why the site response may sometimes seem a bit slowish)...
Similar to any wiki, a Talk/Discussion tab is associated to each page of content; here it is called 'comments'. Note: The comments are disabled - and even if they weren't, they would have still been broken! Finally, note that external links open in a new window (in case you have a popup blocker active).
