Due to exceptionally low number of submissions to the Spring 2021 edition of the Reproducibility Challenge, we have forwarded the papers to be considered for the 2021 Reproducibility Challenge (Fall). However, the forwarded papers will be reviewed separately than the pool of submissions we expect to receive from the Fall edition - such that you still benefit from submitting early (i.e, the acceptance % will be calculated only within this cohort, and not with all submissions). The reviews will not be made public until the submissions of Fall 2021 edition are reviewed, however you will be notified earlier (reviews as well as decisions). We will be shortly announcing when you can expect to hear the results of the reviewing process - the selected papers from the Spring 2021 submissions will be featured in ReScience journal's 2022 edition of Reproducibility Reports.
You can claim a paper using our OpenReview Portal. Log in to the portal, and you will find a list of papers available to claim.
