The AMiner Most Influential Scholar Annual List names the world's top-cited
research scholars from the fields of science and engineering. The list is
conferred in recognition of outstanding technical achievements with lasting
contribution and impact to the research community. The 2016 winners are among
the most-cited scholars from the top venues of their respective subject fields
as of 2016. Recipients are automatically determined by a computer algorithm
deployed in the AMiner system that tracks and ranks scholars based on citation
counts collected by top-venue publications. In specific, the list of the field
“Web and Information Retrieval” answers the question of as of 2016, who are
the most cited scholars in all WWW and SIGIR conferences, which are identified
as the top venues of this field.

been visited by nearly 8.32 million independent IP accesses. It provides various
search/mining services for publishers, NSFC, and research venues such as
ACM/IEEE Transactions, ACM SIGKDD, ACM WSDM, and IEEE ICDM. Further details can
