Research Conference ICML drops their acceptance rate | Area Chairs instructed to be more picky
#icml #machinelearning #conference
In a controversial move, ICML Area Chairs were instructed to raise the bar on acceptance to drop the acceptance rate by 10% from the previous trajectory. This raises a lot of questions about the pains of an academic peer review system under the load of an exponentially increasing field of study. Who draws the short stick? Usually not the big corporations.
[D] ICML Conference: "we plan to reduce the number of accepted papers. Please work with your SAC to raise the bar. AC/SAC do not have to accept a paper only because there is nothing wrong in it." from MachineLearning
From the @icmlconf Chairs: "…we plan to reduce the number of accepted papers. Please work with your SAC to raise the bar. AC/SAC do not have to accept a paper only because there is nothing wrong in it."

The message to SACs read
"According to the current Meta-Review statistics, we need to raise the acceptance bar. Please coordinate with ACs on reducing about 10% of accepted submissions."
I will be encouraging my ACs to ignore this and accept papers on scientific merit.
