After months marred by controversies over poorly-explained desk-rejects and other problematic aspects of its review process, the 34th Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS 2020) has finally released its list of accepted papers.
With 38 percent more paper submissions than 2019, this has been another record-breaking year for NeurIPS. A total of 1,903 papers were accepted, compared to 1,428 last year.
The NeurIPS 2020 Program Chairs report that 12,115 paper abstracts were submitted, leading to 9,467 full submissions. After 184 submissions were withdrawn by authors or rejected for violations such as being non-anonymous or exceeding the maximum page count, 11 percent were desk-rejected, leaving 8,186 papers assigned to reviewers. The NeurIPS 2020 paper acceptance rate is 20.1 percent — slightly lower than last year’s 21 percent.
