[D] AAAI 2020: is it worth it?
I submitted the abstract for AAAI 2020, roughly 3 days before the final deadline. One of my colleagues did the same 2 days before me, and got a submission number less than 100. I got a submission number higher than 4k. Now I’m reading on Twitter that they got more than 10k submissions.
Now, I also believe they are going to have several issues with the reviewers, as they’re asking reviewers to review 5 to 10 papers, with no chance of load reduction. It is my understanding that many people are simply bailing out, for obvious reasons.
What you your experience so far? Are you still submitting the final paper, or may decide to submit somewhere else? I was considering submitting my work to IAAI instead, which is more application focused and is not on the way to implode as AAAI.
