Where will the proceedings be indexed?
ACM will submit the conference Proceedings to ISI for indexing. All other ACM SIGEVO conference proceedings are indexed by ISI, so it is the expectation that GECCO Proceedings will also be, as the GECCO Proceedings also meet the criteria for indexing by ISI.
The printed index product from ISI is called ISTP, and the on-line version is now called the Proceedings Citation Index (PCI). The PCI is included in the Web of Science product. ACM Proceedings are also completely indexed in SCOPUS.
ACM Proceedings are also included in ACM's Guided to Computing Literature, an on-line bibliographic database that indexes ACM's own publications and those of other major publishers in computer science. It is also a citation index with author profiles showing citation statistics as well as download usage for all the full text articles in the ACM Digital Library.
Because ACM's conference proceedings are published as volumes, not journals, they cannot be included in SCI (or SCIE), because those are JOURNAL indices, so conference proceedings published as volumes are not eligible for indexing there. That is no reflection on the quality of the conference proceedings.
