This year, we invited 7 application papers, which got a free entry to the program and a slot in the proceedings. Do you think this is a good idea?

1Jun 10, 2010 7:18 PMThere should be a specific applications stream and review process with a different review form, that encourages reviewers to assess application papers differently.
2Jun 10, 2010 10:06 PMBy-invitation seems like a flawed way to select those papers -- why not just have them reviewed?
3Jun 10, 2010 10:53 PMThere should be instructions to reviewers to treat the "application" papers (specially to new applications) specially, and accept them even if they do not have innovations in the learning algorithms.
