Organizers of the 37th International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) sent out their eagerly awaited paper acceptance results today. A total of 1,088 papers out of 4,990 submissions made it to the prestigious machine learning conference. The acceptance rate of 21.8 percent is a slightly lower than 2019’s 22.6 percent (774 accepted papers from 3,424 submissions), and it seems likely the drastic increase in submissions contributed to this.
The complete list of accepted papers has been released on the official ICML website.
At ICML 2019 the top contributing academic institutions were MIT, UC Berkeley, Stanford University, Carnegie Mellon University, and Georgia Institute of technology. From industry, Google, Google Brain, Microsoft, DeepMind and Facebook ranked as the top five contributing institutions, According to the list of accepted papers, researchers from these tech giants will once again have a strong presence at this year’s conference.
ICML 2020 was originally scheduled for Vienna, Austria, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic it will instead be a virtual conference running from July 12 to 18. Registration for the conference is open, and Synced will update readers as additional information becomes available.
