1Jun 10, 2010 7:16 PM1) it is incredibly slow and totally no fun just because of this 2) the export format is some clumsy xml so no simple offline reviewing is possible 3) there is no good overview for an area chair / reviewer and it is difficult to rank papers
2Jun 10, 2010 8:37 PMmake it faster!!!!
3Jun 10, 2010 8:53 PMCould have been more obvious (i.e., more visible) when the submission deadlines for various steps were (e.g., camera ready version)
4Jun 10, 2010 9:11 PMBetter offline reviewing
5Jun 10, 2010 10:15 PMThe settings on CMT appear to be confusing to many conference managers, as often unexpected things happen (lack of confirmation emails for submission, deadlines which "lock out" reviews, etc.) I can't remember if anything happened for ICML; this is a general observation.
6Jun 11, 2010 1:38 AMAdd a clock about the deadline time at the submission system or website
7Jun 11, 2010 2:35 AMinviting reviewers was difficult, just like assigning reviewers to papers. in general, the system was quite slow, in some case loading long lists of names that could be avoided. (I forgot most of the issues, and the specifics, but there were definitely issues). Also, I am using Firefox and some functionality did not work on it.
8Jun 11, 2010 8:49 AMOne simple thing: - Get all my assignments out in TEXT FORMAT - Allow to import all my decisions in TEXT FORMAT - If you insist on this clicking orgy: At LEAST allow me to sort entries according to any field. And show me ALL of them Remember: Your system is real slow, at least here in Europe - And please don't tell me "my request is taken seriously" if it just goes to the nul device I am not using MS products, because they waste everybodys time. Certainly I am not using Excel.

10Jun 11, 2010 7:22 PMno
11Jun 12, 2010 4:02 AMThe pull-down menus fail in some browsers. Some options are unclear.
12Jun 12, 2010 1:30 PMMake Author names possible to edit (even if the email-address does not change)
13Jun 13, 2010 10:13 PMThe paper ids should be random. Some people speculate that low paper ids/high paper ids have a bias on reviewers.
14Jun 14, 2010 7:41 PMa better control panel
