Expanding the reviewer pool •  The field has become too large to rely on area chairs knowing people personally •  Invited 1,400 researchers who –  Had 3+ paper in the last 5 years at sister venues –  Had 5+ papers in the last 10 years

•  Average paper load was 3 –  Across both short and long papers

RequesJng more of area chairs I •  Bid on 140 reviewers –  with most similar research profiles

•  When unfamiliar with the work of a reviewer –  Look-up on Google scholar/DBLP –  ACs idenJfied a many suitable reviewers

•  Areas were assigned only reviewers approved by the area chairs

RequesJng more of area chairs II •  Work in pairs –  Have emergency back-up –  Discuss reviewer assignment and recommendaJons

•  Write a meta-review –  JusJfy each recommendaJon –  For use only by the program chairs

Flexible areas •  We changed the tradiJonal noJon of areas –  It is hard to predict size –  Area size varies widely –  Reviewer competence is not well-used

•  Instead at NAACL HLT 2016 –  21 areas defined by the area chair experJse –  Areas capped at 40 papers

NAACL HLT 2016 Keywords •  Used to pair area chairs •  To find suitable reviewers for areas •  Match papers to areas
