Germany has been a major contributor to research in computer science, especially in the field of interaction between humans and computers. At present, the leading conference is, according to Google Scholar, the Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI), which is organised by the Association for Computing Machinery and has a very low acceptance rate for conference papers.

Africa has not been well served by the standard world university rankings and some countries have resorted to extracting data from Webometrics and UniRank to construct national rankings. There have been repeated calls for local rankings with criteria that reflect national and African priorities. At present there are 21 Rwandan institutions in the Webometrics rankings. The University of Rwanda is in first place, followed by Kibogora Polytechnic, Université Libre de Kigali, the Adventist University of Central Africa, and the University of Lay Adventists of Kigali.

The number and coverage of international university rankings is steadily increasing. It is therefore desirable that stakeholders and the public should be informed about their design, methodology and validity. So far progress with regard to the general rankings has been limited. Laurent Ortmans, who used to work with the Financial Times business school rankings and is now with the European School of Management and Technology Berlin, has produced a rating of 10 business school rankings.

Luiz Claudio Costa, the President of IREG Observatory on Academic Ranking and Excellence met in Warsaw with Jaroslaw Gowin, Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Science and Higher Education. Also present were members of IREG Observatory leadership: Waldemar Siwinski, Vice President, Robert J. Morse, Member of the Executive Committee and Kazimierz Bilanow, Managing Director.
