SIGIR 2011 Results

Today, the SIGIR paper acceptance/rejections were sent out. What was your result? Let me know in the comments. What did you think of the review quality? Will there be a new influx of new submissions to online journals for rejected papers?

This year there were 545 papers submitted and 108 were accepted (19.8%). Despite controversy that some papers might not receive oral presentations, all papers will have full presentations.

Instead of complaining about the reviewers of my rejected paper, I would instead like to thank the reviewers for their time and consideration, regardless of the outcome, because writing reviews takes a lot of time and effort.

My congratulations to the accepted authors. I look forward to the papers.
