Surveys and Benchmarks

I have contributed various surveys and benchmarks to support comparison and replication of research methods and tools in various areas. In contrast to (most of the) related work in the same fields, all my results are open-source, including datasets and software tools. I believe this to be critical for the progress of science.

Surveys and benchmarks below are organized along my main research themes.
