Across all scientific fields, there is an increased focus on the impact of scientific research: what academic and societal benefits does it provide? This question has spurred the development of a variety of different approaches to impact assessment, each appropriate in different circumstances. In this paper, we study the academic impact of the CHIIR community through a comprehensive analysis of the work published in the 2016-2023 CHIIR conference series. We collect citation counts, citing documents, and altmetrics scores for all CHIIR publications to determine their academic impact across a variety of different attributes of the CHIIR publications. In addition, we analyze a subset of citation contexts in the papers that have cited CHIIR publications to analyze how they are being used and what that means for their potential impact. Finally, we attempt to predict which properties of CHIIR publications are most predictive of future impact.
