So I know with journals you can look up the impact factors, but is there any equivalent for conferences?

So I'm looking at IEEE's Information Technology and Artificial Intelligence Conference which seems to be always hosted in Chongqing (). Does it matter (like for networking or citations) if the conference is always hosted in the same city for international participants? The translation on that conference's site seems a bit off (using "Teacher Xu" rather than "Prof. Xu" as is used on the committees page).

Another conference I'm looking at the RSEP International Economics, Finance, and Business Conference? Is there any way to tell if it's legit and not a predatory conference (I didn't find it listed on Beall's list of predatory publishers)? Is there a site that keeps a list of legit conferences or what's the best way to find upcoming non-predatory conferences?

    Given that dozens of computer-generated papers were published by IEEE, does their name imply any sort of quality standards? nature.com/news/… – smw Aug 28 '20 at 3:10

    In computer science, there are rankings such as CORE, which may be a useful approximation of quality. – GoodDeeds Aug 28 '20 at 6:44

  • To meet/network with experienced researchers (including international) and kind of learn what are currently works in progress. – smw Sep 9 '20 at 15:57
