It's stressed on the first syllable. A similar looking word is "commencing", which is stressed on the second syllable.
The stress is on the first syllable, as both descriptive and prescriptive linguists would agree.
I'm not a native English speaker, but I think the stress should be on the "m"(which I feel is read more comfortable): [kə'menting].
