I work in software engineering, where I specialize in computer graphics. I recently had to do a bit of research for my job, and I'd like to publish it at some point. It's currently going through my company's patent application process, but eventually, I think they'll let me publish it.
I don't have a graduate degree, nor do I have any interest in playing the academic game. On the other hand, my research is novel enough that I expect I'll be getting invitations to conferences when I do publish, and I'd like to know what to expect. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
