The peer review process can be difficult to navigate for newcomers. In this informal talk we will review the results of the NIPS experiment, an experiment on the repeatability of peer review conducted for the 2014 conference. We will try to keep the presentation information to ensure questions can be asked. With luck it will give more insight into the processes that a program committee goes through when selecting papers.
