Conference Ranking Systems
Even though the IEEE Computer Society does not have a position on conference ranking systems, we were interested in understanding how these are perceived by the community. To this effect, members of the T&C ExCom conducted a small scale study via a survey with our Technical Communities and received responses from the Chairs of 17 of our Technical Communities (TCs) and Task Forces (TFs). Find the summary of results of this survey here.
