I am a final year student of engineering. I have submitted a paper for presentation at IEEE Power and Energy Conference 2016 - Illinois USA to be held on 19th and 20th February 2016.
The paper has been accepted and I am excited about the same. I am in the planning stage of going and presenting the paper at conference. My departments HOD and most of my teachers are supportive and have encouraged me to attend the conference.
One of my seniors has however commented that I must check the ranking of conference before deciding to attend.
How do I check the conference ranking?? If I find that the conference is not ranked how does it affect the importance of presenting at IEEE conference and addition to my CV.
I am planning for a career in research and in the process have applied to some US universities for PhD. Will this addition to my CV be useful??
Awaiting a reply before proceeding to book tickets and apply for visa.
