A widely used metric for assessing the quality of a workshop/conference is the acceptance rate. The lower the acceptance rate, the higher the presumable quality, since it indicates a rigorous peer review.

Many editors of volume at include such data (number of submissions, number of accepted papers) in their preface.

So, why not include it as semantic annotation into the main index file of a published volume.  This would allow to query a volume on basis of such metrics, e.g. “give me all volumes with an acceptance rate lower than 25% for full papers”.

Are there standards available to represent such data, e.g. in RDF?
