The CVPR 2018 main paper's program only considers full paper submissions (up to 8 pages of text, excluding references). The review process for all papers was double-blind. Each paper was reviewed by at least three reviewers. The review process included a chance for authors to provide a rebuttal to address issues raised by the reviewers. Reviewers had the opportunity to read the authors' rebuttal and change their initial review scores. The final accept/reject decisions for each paper were made by a triplet of three area chairs who consider the paper, the rebuttal, and the reviewers' scores and comments. In the end, 29% of the papers were accepted.
After the acceptance decisions were made, the presentation mode of each paper has determined based on the area chairs' recommendations (poster, spotlight, or oral). All accepted papers, regardless of presentation mode, appear in the proceedings as full-length papers. In the IEEE digital archive, papers are not distinguished by their presentation mode.
