Gilbert Laporte one of the world’s top 50 researchers in computer science and electronics

Gilbert Laporte is one of the world’s most productive and influential authors in the fields of computer science and electronics, according to the Top 1000 Scientists 2019 ranking.

The HEC Montréal professor ranks 3rd in Canada and 43rd in the world in this list, based mainly on the Google Scholar h index. The index considers both the number of publications by a scholar and the number of times his or her work has been cited.

The Digital Bibliography and Library Project (DBLP), a website that publishes a catalogue of computer science bibliographies, was also used in creating this ranking.

Top 1000 Scientists 2019 gives Professor Laporte an h index of 121, with 59,376 citations recorded by Google and 349 papers in the DBLP catalogue.
