I submitted a paper to a conference, it got rejected but I received valuable feedback. After implementing the suggested changes, I am submitting the manuscript to a different conference but I would like to thank the referees from the previous conference.

If I just write "We thank the reviewers for their invaluable suggestions" then it might be confusing for the referees of the current (second) conference.

What are you doing in such a situation?

    "We thank 4 anonymous reviewers." By adding the number it often gives the appropriate information. Feb 20 '15 at 23:20

How about:

We would like to thank X and Y for their review of a previous version of this manuscript

  • That would work nicely if one knew their names...

  • Nothing stops you from putting "anonymous" in there.

    nothiing stops you from leaving X and Y: We would like to thank X and Y for their review of a previous version of this manuscript. We unfortunately do not know their names, but this does not decrease our gratitude. :D
