Phew, just made the deadline for DOA 2005.
Boy oh boy though, I had a couple of stinkers this year. These are papers that could have been written by high schoolers, I kid you not. Are some advisors evaluating their students by the number of papers submitted rather than accepted? I can’t think of any other reason for why people would want to put their names to some of the crap I was just forced to read.
It wasn’t all bad though. Of my eight papers (thank you PC chairs!), I had one excellent paper, and one pretty good one.
