2024 - Call For Blogposts

 

Following the success of previous blogpost tracks, we decided to host it again for ICLR 2024. More context about this initiative can be found on the main website of the Blog Post Track 2024
 

Call

​ We invite all researchers and practitioners to submit a blog post discussing work previously published at a top-tier venue to the ICLR 2024 blog post track. The format and process for this blog post track are described below. ​

Content

​ Write a post on a subject that has been published at a top-tier venue (ICLR, ICML, NeurIPS, AAAI, UAI, CVPR, SIGGRAPH, ECCV, ICCV, etc.) relatively recently. Past blog posts can be accessed here. ​

Conflict of interest

​ The authors of the blog posts will have to declare their conflicts of interest (positive or negative) with the paper (and their authors) they write about. Conflicts of interest include:

  • Recent collaborators (less than 3 years)
  • Current institution ​ Reviewers will be asked to judge if the submission is sufficiently critical and objective of the papers addressed in the blog post. Blog Posts must not be used to purely highlight or advertise past publications of the authors or of their lab. However authors are allowed to submit a blog that covers one of their paper (or the paper of a collaborator) as long as they declare the potential conflict of interest. 

Publication

Blog post

​ The posts will be created and published under a unified template; see the submission instructions and the sample post hosted on the blog of this website.

Poster

Additionally, accepted posts will have the option to present their work as a poster during the main poster session. For more information about the main poster session (time, poster format, etc.) please refer to the ICLR homepage.

Review

Blogs will be peer-reviewed (double-blind) for quality and novelty of the content: clarity and pedagogy of the exposition, new theoretical or practical insights, reproduction/extension of experiments, etc. The review is dual-anonymous assuming good faith from both submitters and reviewers (see the submission instructions for more details). ​

Key Dates

Note that the Abstract and submission deadlines have been modified (they were previously the 4th and 8th of December)

  • Abstract deadline: December 11th UTC, 2023 (submit to OpenReview).  

  • Submission deadline: December 17th UTC, 2023 (any modifications to your blog post, via a pull request on github).
