EAI Index is the first open and transparent way of recognizing great researchers worldwide.

EAI Index is awarded to contributing EAI members, recognizing their research and innovation excellence on a credit-system basis.

  • Credits for Authors: awarded on a scale of 0-10 as a measure of the value of each of their valid paper, as determined by its average review score.
  • Bonus credits for Authors: credit gain is doubled when the paper is accepted, and quadrupled for papers with the highest average review score in the conference or a journal volume.
  • Credits for Reviewers: 1 or 2 credits awarded for every completed and valid review, as evaluated by the Program Committee Member or Journal Editor in charge of the article, verified by the Program Committee Chair and Editor-in-Chief respectively.
  • Credits for General Chairs: awarded as a measure of the quality and outreach of their conference as determined by the value of all papers submitted.
  • Credits for Program Committee Chairs: awarded as a measure of the quality and impact of their conference as determined by the value of all papers accepted.
  • Credits for Track Chairs: awarded as a measure of the quality and impact of their conference track, as determined by the value of all papers accepted.
