Mining Service Contributions from CFP


Call for Papers (CFP) is an important communication tool to solicit academic work for review and publication. At the same time, they demonstrate the reputability of a Conference and acknowledge the contributions of its members by listing their names, affiliations and respective roles. While the reputation of researchers are often quantitatively measured using metrics such as the h-index, we seek to also capture the less tangible service contributions that researchers have made to the community.

In this project, we build an automated system to continuously crawl and extract service contributions from CFP, and unify such data into a consolidated database.
