#1st #Tuesday #Journal-Paper #Club #Conference #paper #selectivity #and #impact

This month's papers are:

 “Conference Paper Selectivity and Impact” in a 2010 issue of the Communications of the ACM


“The Role of Conference Publications in CS” in the same journal

- http://cacm.acm.org/magazines/2010/12/102124-the-role-of-conference-publications-in-cs/fulltext)

Professor Paul Strooper has kindly agreed to lead the discussion and the venue will again be the Brisbane Brewhouse (see address details & map below).

*About the 1st Tuesday Journal-Paper Club:* the idea is to meet regularly, usually on the 1st Tuesday of the month as the name suggests (inspired by the ABC TV series "1st Tuesday Book Club"). Each month, the participants would agree on a highly cited, 'top ten' or major-prize-winning article in an SPS or ComSoc journal (but not one of our own!). We would also select a Discussion Leader. Through the month, each of the participants would read the article. At the next meeting, the Discussion Leader would lead a discussion of that article, starting with his/her own appraisal. In this way, it is hoped that we could all broaden our understanding of the field and further develop a sense of community. 1st rule of 1st Tuesday Journal-Paper Club: tell everyone about 1st Tuesday Journal-Paper Club.

Conference paper selectivity and impact

Studying Metadata of the ACM Digital Library (http://www.acm.org/dl), we found that papers in low-acceptance-rate conferences have higher impact than those in high-acceptance-rate conferences within ACM, where impact is measured by the number of citations received. We also found that highly selective conferences—those that accept 30% or less of submissions—are cited at a rate comparable to or greater than ACM Transactions and journals.
