Speech Rankings

This project mimics CSRankings to generate an ordered list
of researchers in speech/spoken language processing along with their possible research topics, based on
recent publications on important venues of the field, so as to help students seeking for PhD studies to
find desirable advisors.

How to use

The pre-generated report is available at here. To build it by

  1. Run prepare_data.py to build publications.json and authors.json, or simply use the data provided, covering
    those from 2011 to 2021.
  2. Run export.py to generate the report.

How does it work

We scrape author metadata and publication data of the following three types of venues from DBLP, including:

  • Speech venues: Interspeech, Speech Communications, SLT, SSW, ASRU, IWSLT
  • Mixed venues: ICASSP, TASLP
  • General venues: NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, ACL, EMNLP, NAACL, KDD, AAAI, IJCAI

All publications in Speech venues are included. Paricularly for Interspeech, section/field of each paper are collected
from ISCA Archive to show possible research topics of each researcher. So are the keywords from IEEE Xplore
for papers published on IEEE-held venues. Keywords (as well as titles) are also used to filter out non-speech papers in
Mixed venues by a set of rules. Titles are used to identify speech papers in General venues. Researchers are sorted by
the total number of publications.

The collected data contain errors, and the project is neither intended to index speech-related papers nor
to compare researchers in the field.
