Systems Research: Hall of Fame

Systems Research: Hall of Fame

Authors are ranked by total number of SOSP and OSDI papers (the top conferences for systems research). Authors with same number of papers have the same rank.

For display purposes, within each rank, authors are sorted by last name. Top 100 (approximately) authors are shown.

Disclaimers: A real Hall of Fame should be determined by impact, not paper count. Data pulled from DBLP using a variation of dblp-python. Typos and name changes can cause miscounts. Please direct all queries about data to DBLP.
