Computer conference ranking lists
The list below shows the most important sites to rank conferences:
- Computing Research and Education Association of Australasia (CORE). This ranking has been created in 2008; new rankings are provided via the ARC (see link below).
- Australian Research Council (ARC). As aprt of the Excellence in Research in Australia (ERA) a conference ranking (amongst others) has been created in December 2009; rankings range from A (=best conference) to C, and unranked. The input data is provided by scopus; ranking itself is performed by Australian deans, and the Australian CORE (see above). As a consequence, conferences unknown by Australian researchers have not been ranked.
- Microsoft Academic search - Top-ranked Conferences in "Networks and Communications". This site ranks conferences based on citations and publications. Compared to others, relatively complete. Ranking algorithm unclear, and results are sometimes surprising.
- CiteseerX Estimated Venue Impact Factors. Updated until 2007; number of venues is quite limited. Includes journals as well
Anonymous conference-ranking sites
There are a number of websites that provide more or less similar information on conference ranking. The URLs of many of these sites include conference-ranking. The domain can be either .com, .org or .net. The URL may start with www and/or cs (for computer science conferences). Also various researchers maintain via their homepages a list with conference rankings; a google search with the search phrase Computer Science Conference Rankings will provide the URLs of many of such pages. Those who want to use such anonymous conference ranking sites, should read first http://www.rankingexpose.com/. That URL provides background information on these sites, and suggests to avoid anonymous conference ranking sites.
