The SDL Forum Society exists since the early 1990’s and has led the organization of numerous conferences and workshops over the years. This paper performs a citation analysis of 491 papers published in 22 SDL/SAM proceedings published between 1991 and 2016 in order to assess the impact of these events on academic research. Through the use of common metrics, the most influential papers and authors are identified. Common languages and topics discussed in the papers are also highlighted. This paper finally identifies several strengths and challenges of the SDL Forum Society as a research community.
