CSIndex is maintained by the Applied Software Engineering Research Group, from Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil. However, the project results are not endorsed by UFMG or any Brazilian research agency. Just as importantly, we cannot assure the absence of flaws, errors, inconsitencies, and missing entries in the data provided by CSIndex. For this reason, the use of our data is at your own risk.
Papers are collected, using scripts, from DBLP. We only collect full papers, accepted in the main research track of the considered conferences.
It is a paper presented in the main track of a conference. We also apply the following minimum page size thresholds:
No, the focus is on full papers, describing mature and carefully evaluated work. Papers tracked by CSIndex can be considered as journal-quality papers, although published in conferences.
Yes, but only after covering conferences in all CS research areas.
Please, check if it is a full paper, published in the main track of the conferences tracked by CSIndex, in the last five years (2013-2017). If this the case, please open an issue on GitHub, informing your name, department, and info about the paper (title, conference year).
We do not intend to cover all CS conferences. The number we have in mind is 15 conferences per research area.
We accept suggestions to track other conferences. However, our main interest is on high-quality conferences, with good metrics and well-known sponsors (ACM SIGs, IEEE CS, etc). Particularly, the conferences should attend the following criteria: submitted > 100 papers; acceptance < 30%; h5-index > 20. If you think this is the case of [Conf], please open an issue on GitHub, informing the statistics about this conference in 2017.
First, enter in contact providing basic metrics about the core conferences in X, in our opinion (see the required metrics in the Stats tab).
CSIndex assigns all papers from an author to its current institution. Therefore, after moving to Y, his papers are listed as belonging to Y, even the ones produced when he was at X. The main reason is that it is not trivial to automatically keep track of the past institutions of each author in our database.
