Are there differences between academic papers (f.e. a (conference) paper written by PhD students and/or professors) and industrial papers (f.e. a conference paper written by engineers working for a company)?
I am a scientist working in a company and frequently collaborating with university academics. There is no difference between the papers we write.
People at companies are more likely to write more applied papers, and people at universities are more likely to write more theoretical papers, but the distributions are highly overlapping.
