Anecdotal contribution on the noise in the reviewing process: the initial reviews of one of our submissions to EMNLP were 3.5, 3.5, 4.5. We thought the paper had a 50/50 chance to be rejected, and then it received the Best Long Paper Award. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Happy to share our paper on ViTs and CNNs was accepted to #NeurIPS2021! Our other two submissions this year were rejected. I still think they have some great results and am looking forward to improving the papers with the received feedback.

Given we are at the #CVPR2022 AC onboarding stage, check out @cgmsnoek and my talk about ACing at the #ICCV2021 tutorial on "Reviewing the Review Process". Had a BLAST preparing this talk. At some point will watch it but uncomfortable watching myself.

Boosting for visibility. We can keep complaining about reviewing on various levels, debate the process & challenges. However, we should all agree that arbitrary rejects based on fixed 15% acceptance are unwarranted in an age of virtual conferences without printed proceedings.
