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!
