The acronym uses the first 3 words, whatever they are (even numbers).
2.- To add a publication run:
FOR AN INTERNAL PUBLICATION: addviswebpub <entry-name> <list-filename> FOR A NON_BROWN PUBLICATION: addviswebbib <entry-name> <list-filename>
<list-filename> can be found in /map/gfx0/common/visweb/lists
(NOTE on possible ERROR messages: If it gives an error run /map/gfx0/tools/shared/bin/viswebupdate. Follow the instructions to setup the needed 'gfxtools' environment variables. Email me email@example.com if you have trouble. YOU NEED TO DO THIS BEFORE PROCEEDING FARTHER.)
(If it asks for confirmation to overwrite a file, that means someone else already created the entry. Respond NO (or 'n') to avoid overwritting and proceed with step 3)
3.- Open, in emacs or any other editor, the file named:

5.- If you have a pdf file for the document, run:
addviswebpdf <pdf-file-name> <entry-name>
Use 'addviswebps', 'addviswebppt', 'addviswebtxt', 'addviswebdoc', etc. for any other file types.
6.- Run viswebupdate.
You are all set. Your new entry will be in http://www.cs.brown.edu/research/vis/lists/home.html in the list you added it to.
