Roger Billsdon - Articles

These are a few conference papers and magazine articles I've had published which, although rather old, contain some common sense advice and thoughts which remain relevant today.

It is interesting to see how little some things have changed in what is supposed to be a fast moving industry!

Unfortunately because these files contain scanned images of the original printed articles, the Adobe Acrobat pdf files are a little large and, in some cases, the quality of the images is not very good.
