This paper presents analyses of peer-reviewed papers and posters published in the past nine years of ISMIR proceedings: examining publication and authorship practices, topics and titles of research, as well as the citation patterns among the ISMIR proceedings. The main objective is to provide an overview of the progress made over the past nine years in the ISMIR community and to obtain some insights into where the community should be heading in the coming years. Overall, the ISMIR community has grown considerably over the past nine years, both in the number of papers and posters published each year, as well as the number of authors contributing. Furthermore, the amount of collaboration among authors, as reflected in co-authorship, has increased. Main areas of research are revealed by an analysis of most commonly used title terms. Also, major authors and research groups are identified by analyzing the co-authorship and citation patterns in ISMIR proceedings.
