INTRODUCTION
PROCEEDINGS SCHOLAR METRICS is a ranking that displays proceedings (conferences, workshops, symposia, meetings) indexed in Google Scholar Metrics (GSM) on the areas of Computer Science, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, and Communications, which in this fourth edition corresponds to the period 2012-2016.

It is a well-known fact that conference proceedings play a major role as a means of scientific communication in all areas concerning Computer Engineering, Electronics, and Communications. The rapid rate at which knowledge is generated in these fields required the creation of a more dynamic system to communicate and publish research results. Conferences have historically fulfilled this role. 


The development of Google Scholar Metrics, launched on April 2012 with the goal of providing a ranking of scientific publications indexed on Google Scholar (journals, proceedings, repositories), provided that they had published at least 100 papers and received at least one citation in the last five years, has been a crucial step towards knowing the impact of conferences, which are so important in these areas.

Therefore, the system interface does not allow us to effectively determine which and how many conference proceedings GSM has indexed. In order to overcome this limitation, the objective of PROCEEDINGS SCHOLAR METRICS is to compile an inventory of all the conferences present in GSM concerning these fields of knowledge, and after that, rank them according to their scientific impact, as measured by the H index.

METHODOLOGY

Subject areas covered

Proceedings concerning Computer Science (theoretical, information theory, artificial intelligence, evolutionary computation, fuzzy systems, human computer interaction, computer vision & pattern recognition, computer hardware design, computing systems, signal processing, computer networks & wireless communication, robotics, automation & control theory, software systems, computer security & cryptography, computer graphics, databases & information systems, data mining & analysis, multimedia, bioinformatics & computational biology, biomedical technology, medical informatics, computational linguistics, education technology), Electrical & Electronic Engineering and Communications (telecommunications, remote sensing, antennas, radar, microware).

Search strategy

In order to identify the proceedings we followed two different strategies:

1. We collected all the conferences displayed in the subcategories concerning Computer Science, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, and Communications.
2. We collected the data about the conferences we had already found in previous editions of this report.
3. We carried out various searches using descriptive and pertinent keywords in order to locate the rest of relevant conferences. These searches took place on the second week of December, 2017.

The results of each search were downloaded (including the name of the conference, the h5-index, and the h5-median) and duplicates were removed. A manual check was carried out in order to filter out any irrelevant entries (journals, repositories, and conferences outside the scope of our study). A total of 1,918 conference proceedings were identified.

Criteria for the inclusion of Google Scholar Metrics proceedings

Proceedings that published at least 100 papers and received at least one citation in the last five years (2012-2016)

Sorting criteria and fields displayed

The proceedings are sorted by their H Index. In case of a tie, the discriminate value is the h5-median (the median number of citations for the articles that make up its h-index)

The information displayed for each conference is: H5-Index; H5-Median; Quartile
