Top Crypto and Security Conferences Ranking (2014) [by year]



Here we first define the Conference Impact Factor (CIF) as follows:

        CIF = 1 / (AR+PR+CR), where

AR = No. accepted papers / No. of submissions

PR = No. accepted papers / No. of registered participants

CR = No. accepted papers / No. of citations


Below is a CIF-based ranking of top crypto and security conferences, for informal reference only. The CR data (last 10 years) is from Microsoft Academic Search. The ranking will be adjusted once a year. There is no intention to rank all crypto and security conferences due to limited resources. However, if a conference that could be ranked above the last one in the list is missing, please let me know (with the supporting data of at least past 5 years). Small conferences (with less than 20 accepted papers and 50 participants) are excluded.
