Reproducibility

今年的 ML Reproducibility Challenge 2020 有两个report选了我们的NeurIPS paper,分别写了8页和13页的report,简直受宠若惊。

不过复现结果不怎么理想。 指出了些问题,同时也confirm了我们的主要claim。喜忧参半吧。

算是见识到优秀的代码是什么样的了。 自愧不如。还得好好学习一波。

DLG-AAAI2021

Finally, our social recommendation paper got accepted to a workshop. Since it will not be included in proceedings, we can still submit it to a conference. Maybe SIGIR short paper is suitable. Good Luck.

Submission for TKDE

An old saying in Chinese, “祸兮福所倚,福兮祸所伏”. My KDD paper had been rejected 6 times before it got accepted, ICDM 2018, WWW 2019, KDD 2019, WSDM 2020, WWW 2020. In the initial version, we focus on a general random walk method. Later, we decide to narrow down the scope and focus on a specific task. I went back to the original version and used it as an extension for a journal. Maybe it is time to prepare the cover letter and submit it.

Submission for DLG@AAAI

Hmmm, the paper I finished last summer has been rejected 3 times. I got 8,6,5 at AAAI2020, almost all negative feedbacks in IJCAI 2020 and AAAI 2021. What a hot topic the Recommendation system is. Last year, there are only two or three methods applying GCN for the recommendation system. Now, tens of papers appear. The method is not novel anymore. After a discussion with co-authors, I have decided to submit it to a workshop. Really don’t know how to deal with it if it gets rejected again.

For me, It doesn’t matter whether it published or not. However, other coauthors also made a lot of effort and I don’t want to let them down. Hope we can get it this time!

WSDM 2021

I am happy that our paper PTDNet is finally got accepted to WSDM. Although it is not a top tier conference, I am satisfied with the result.

By the way, our recommendation paper got rejected from AAAI 2021 in the first phase. Hmmm, have no idea how to deal with it.

No submissions under review now. It is time to prepare some submissions. No pain, no gain!

Pass the M.S. Defense

I passed the M.S. Defense and will get my M.S. degree this term.

I used to think that I would not get an M.S. degree.

Wanna Graduate

My former roommate is about the take the final defense tomorrow and will be titled with Dr. then.

Maybe I should also talk to my advisor about that. I feel like a loser, but because of my publications or ability, just know why I lost my passion during this process. To be honest, I enjoy just to import well-established packages than doing research.
