The list of accepted papers for EC is up. I'm happy to say that our Swoopo paper made the list.
I was surprised in the acceptance letter to find that there were 45 acceptances out of 136 papers -- an acceptance rate of about 1/3. (Compare with WSDM.) This makes it one of the less "competitive" CS conferences I know of, although a little research shows this is a bit unusual -- last year the numbers were 40/160 or so, so they accepted more papers and had fewer submissions this year. Is that a trend in the making or an accident of timing this year? Also, while I'm an EC newbie, the list of papers looks very interesting, with plenty of top-tier names. "Competitive" or not, I'm expecting high quality. I'm really looking forward to it -- and not just because its location makes it remarkably convenient for those of us in the greater Boston area.
