EMC and EMC2 references

Someone created a wikipedia page for EMC over here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enhanced_Machine_Controller

The wikipedia-police have immediately put it on the list of pages to be deleted ("unremarkable", "no third party references", "borderline advert", etc.). So I decided to collect some references. It is best to archive them here also, in case the wikipedia page does get deleted.

There should be a report by Rogier Blom called roughly "Design and development of a real time trajectory planner for the Enhanced Machine Controller", but I wasn't able to find that. It's probably the same document as this one (the pdf has chapter 4->): http://emc.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/emc/emc/doc/segmentqueue.pdf?view=log

Please comment below and/or enhance the wikipedia article if you find more references!
