Computer and information sciences panel decided to upgrade 13 conferences to level 3.

At it's May meeting, the Publication Forum steering group approved the proposal of the computer and information sciences panel to upgrade 13 conferences to level 3. The level ratings have been updated in the publication channel database and the new levels apply to peer-reviewed articles published in these conferences after January 1, 2023.

List of conferences upgraded to level 3:

  1. ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI)

  2. ACM Multimedia

  3. ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD)

  4. ACM SIGMOD International Conference on Management of Data (SIGMOD)

  5. ACM Symposium on Theory of Computing (STOC)

  6. Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS)

  7. IEEE international Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV)

  8. IEEE symposium of security and privacy (S&P)

  9. International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML)

  10. International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE)

  11. International Cryptology Conference (CRYPTO)

  12. International World Wide Web conference (www/thewebconf)


The panel also discussed upgrading ten other conferences to level 3. The steering group decided that at its autumn meeting the panel can still consider upgrading these conferences to level 3. The steering group also accepted the panel's proposal that the list of level 3 conferences can be revised and supplemented in the future based on feedback from the research community.

To support its decision-making, the panel used the results of a survey on classification of conferences. The survey was carried out in March 2023 and the aim was to hear researchers' opinions on whether conferences should be accepted to level 3, and identify the highest-level conferences.
