Scholarly Societies Project

Computer Science

This is one of a set of subject pages in the Scholarly Societies Project, which facilitates access to websites of scholarly societies across the world. A set of guidelines is used in determining whether to include resources.

Links to websites of scholarly societies in Computer Science are given below. The URL-Stability Index for this collection of Computer Science sites is 219.5/235 = 93.4%. The URL-stability index for each site below is given graphically in the left-hand column as the URL-stability rank for that site.
