We strongly encourage students, postdocs, and researchers in all areas of machine learning who are women or non-binary to submit an abstract (1 page PDF) describing new, previously, or concurrently published research. We welcome abstract submissions in theory, methodology, as well as applications. While the presenting author need not be the first author of the work, we request that the presenting author should be woman or non-binary.
Submissions will be reviewed in a double-blind setting. Authors of accepted abstracts will be asked to present their work in either a virtual or in-person poster session. A few authors will be selected to give oral presentations. There are no formal proceedings. Abstracts are non-archival: they may describe completed research or work-in-progress.
