Below is a chronological list of publications by Judy Van Zile that include or relate to Labanotation or movement analysis. Please note the 1993 "index" item. It indexes presentations made at ICKL conferences, and includes both technical papers relating to the symbology and applications of the system, as well as research papers that include movement analysis and Labanotation examples. It's really a valuable document for locating some interesting papers.
