The number of submissions to ICRA is trending upward. Acceptance rates have dropped to approximately 40%, the number of papers is typically around 800, and the number of attendees is typically just under 2000. As the number of ICRA submissions continues to grow, we can consider alternatives for future ICRAs. For example, some very large conferences have mostly posters or the equivalent. The alternatives below refer only to the main 3-4 days of sessions. Please choose one answer for each question (except one question as indicated).
