Statement on ISWC rankings
March 13, 2013
ISWC ranking in conference ranking lists being revised.
It has been brought to our attention that several lists that present rankings of conferences in Computer Science do not adequately reflect the quality and standing of the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) series. Specifically, the conference ranking on Google Scholar does not currently treat ISWC as a conference series. Thus, despite many ISWC papers receiving hundreds of citations, the conference series itself does not get the credit. Similarly the CORE rankings by the Australian Research Council do not currently reflect the scientific quality of ISWC. SWSA is actively working with both Google and the CORE ranking team to get this situation remedied and we expect that the situation will change within the next few months.
For any questions or concerns please contact Natasha Noy (SWSA Preseident)
