I am trying to find out the top conferences that have the largest average number of citations in the last 5 years on the Internet but fail to find one. However, there are many rankings about the overall citations and numbers of publications. Hence, it is not hard to calculate the average number of citations by ourselves and check which conferences rank most.
I first choose the 300 conferences that are most cited and then rank them by the average number of citations. There are 30 conferences with 10+ average citations. The following table lists the 30 conferences.

I marked the conferences that I am familiar with—SOSP, NSDI, OSDI, EuroSys, VEE and USENIX ATC. These conferences are indeed very good ones in the cloud computing system research area.
I also attached a PDF file that contains all the 300 conferences that I examine. Download the PDF.
