Over the past two years, I have reviewed for NeurIPS, ICML, AAAI, UAI, and several journals. Due to the crazy number of submissions each of these conferences receives, all people with expertise should consider devoting part of their time to reviewing. This year, I’m also reviewing for ICLR, even though I haven’t submitted a single paper there. But since last year they received 2594 submissions, and taking into account the dynamics, it is very likely this year the number of submissions will be close to 4000. In that case, it seems important even people who have not previously submitted to ICLR review, given they have time.
