CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

10th WORKSHOP FOR WOMEN IN MACHINE LEARNING 2015 Co-located with NIPS
Montreal, Canada December 7, 2015
http://www.wimlworkshop.org/

INTRODUCTION

Machine learning is one of the fastest growing areas of computer science research.
Search engines, text mining, social media analytics, face recognition, DNA sequence analysis, speech and handwriting recognition, healthcare analytics are just some of the applications in which machine learning is routinely used.

In spite of the wide reach of machine learning and the variety of theory and applications it covers, the percentage of female researchers is lower than in many other areas of computer science. Most women working in machine learning rarely get the chance to interact with other female researchers, making it easy to feel isolated and hard to find role models.

This technical workshop gives female faculty, research scientists, and graduate students in the machine learning community an opportunity to meet, network and exchange ideas, participate in career-focused panel discussions with senior women in industry and academia and learn from each other. Underrepresented minorities and undergraduates interested in machine learning research are encouraged to attend.

This year’s team is Abigail Jacobs as Program Chair, Ramya Ramakrishnan as Connection Chair, Kate Niehaus as Finance & Sponsorship Chair, Svitlana Volkova as Submission & Mentorship Chair, and Maithra Raghu as Event and Logistics Chair.

WORKSHOP FORMAT

The 10th WiML Workshop is Co-located with NIPS in Montreal, Canada on December 07, 2015.

The one-day workshop will consist of talks by established researchers and graduate students, a poster session for graduate students to showcase their research, and a panel discussion to discuss careers in machine learning.

There will also be a pre-workshop dinner on December 6, 2015 for participants arriving
the night before the workshop.

TRAVEL SCHOLARSHIPS

Workshop registration is free.
We are able to provide travel scholarships for those who wish to participate in the workshop. Please see our website for more details. (http://www.wimlworkshop.org/)
