Following this question, what does A and A* mean for conference rank? Is there a site where can I get information for conference rank?

1 Answer 1


In computer science, the most important ranking is the one maintained by CORE, the Computing Research and Education Association of Australasia. It uses ranks such as A* (=exceptional), A (=excellent), B (=good to very good), and C (=sound and satisfactory).

They make the criteria for the different ranks explicit in a formal ranking description document.

Also, they have an online database with their rankings.

  • Thanks @lighthouse keeper, Is there also an online database for journals (Q1 etc.)?

    @Avi At least for my subfield of CS, there's no universally accepted ranking of journals. The closest thing would be rankings based on H-index and/or Impact Factor, listed on sites such as Scimago. Sep 16, 2019 at 9:49
