  • Thoughts and Reflections from a 1st Time Reviewer
    A few months ago, I received an email that asked me to serve on the ICWSM 2014 Program Committee. The role of PC member for this conference entails reading several submitted papers to the conference and then writing up reviews that would then be used by the senior members to come to a decision about accepting or [...]

  • Allocating CHI Reviewers, 2014 Edition
    As is now an annual tradition, I’ve performed my analysis of the allocation of reviewers for this year’s CHI conference.  The data from the CHI review process suggests that we can reduce the number of reviewers per paper (and thus reduce the workload on our community) without significantly affecting the outcome.  At present, every paper [...]

  • Shining some Sunlight on Conference Reviews
    There’s ongoing discussion of our conference review process.  Unsurprisingly it seems to spike around the time people get reviews of their own work.  A lot of the griping tends to assert that reviewers aren’t doing a good job.  Some argue for abandoning the pre-publication review process in favor of accepting everything and reviewing post-publication.  But [...]

  • Demanding a Replicability Paragraph in Conference Submissions
    This past month I finished reviewing 4 papers for CHI and 6 for the WWW conference.  For CHI, 3 of the 4 papers described small, simple applications intended to test some user interface idea.  For WWW, 4 of the 6 were machine learning/model fitting papers that tested algorithms on a particular non-sensitive data sets, one [...]

The project [...]

  • Can Academics Make a Difference in CS Research?
    I don’t get them often, but by some statistical fluke I last summer I got invitations to and attended the faculty summits at Google, Microsoft, and Facebook within a period of two weeks.  I’ll spoke about the summits themselves in a different post.  In this one, I’ll talk about one existential question that arose while [...]

  • Semantic Web for End Users: Keynote from ESWC 2013 now Online
    A final addendum to my series of three posts on the Semantic Web and End Users.  The talk that I summarized in those posts is now online here, synchronized with the slides I presented.  I think I did a pretty good job getting through 217 slides in 75 minutes, and there’s some interesting Q&A at [...]

  • Keynote at ESWC Part 3: What’s Wrong with Semantic Web Research, and Some Ideas to Fix it
    I’ve just returned from the European Semantic Web Conference, where I gave a keynote talk on “The Semantic Web for End Users”.   My talk addressed the problem that has interested me for eighteen years: making it easier for end users to manage their information.  The thesis was that The current state of tools for [...]
