Several people have helped make my goal to build this rankings web site a reality. Xiaojun Zhang, a PhD graduate of the University of Arkansas and now a faculty member at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, served as the project manager during the design, implementation and first year of the project. He tirelessly supervised and coordinated much of the work of several people in addition to designing the database, automating the process of data entry and enhancing the data consistency. Frank Chan, a PhD graduate of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and now a faculty member at Curtin University, developed the extensive functionality provided on the site. Supreet Joglekar, a PhD student at the University of Arkansas, now manages the project and oversees various activities, including data entry and verification. Jaime Newell, a PhD graduate of the University of Arkansas and now a faculty member at the University of Cincinnati, designed the user interface and significantly helped with the data verification effort.
Many contributed to the data entry (past and present) and some aspects of the web application design: Abdul Asim, Shalini Balerao, Archana Bhattaram, Mingyu Li and Yutao Zhang. In the early phases of the project, Hillol Bala, a PhD graduate of the University of Arkansas and now an assistant professor at Indiana University, contributed to the analysis and design.
