Abstract

This paper presents the co-authorship network of the DAFx conference series, from its inception in 1998 to the present, along with subsequent analysis. In total 1,281 unique authors have contributed 1,175 unique submissions to this conference series. The co-authorship network is revealed to contain a large weakly connected component containing 667 authors (≈52% of the total network). The size of this component compares well to previous studies of other conference series of similar age and scope. Within this connected component, 24 communities were detected using the Louvain method. While some communities have formed based on geographic proximity, links between communities are observed. This shows a high level of collaboration in the network, possibly due to the speciality of the conference and the movement of academics throughout Europe.
