I am currently writing my dissertation and at the beginning, I published a conference paper that proposes how something can be used for a special purpose. I have cited someones something who never used this before for this purpose. Two years later, this person publishes a paper like I had and proposing the same thing I have proposed before, but did not cite me.
Now I am writing related work and I would like to mention that I published this idea earlier. Otherwise one can think I have reproduced this work, but they reproduced mine. How do I write this correctly that in the meantime this paper was published after my original publication?
