December 5, 2016 - WiML Workshop
The Workshop for Women in Machine Learning is a full-day event with invited speakers, oral presentations, and posters. The event brings together female faculty, graduate students, and research scientists for an opportunity to connect, exchange ideas, and learn from each other. Underrepresented minorities and undergraduates interested in pursuing machine learning research are encouraged to participate. There will also be a panel discussion, a mentoring session and a pre-workshop dinner to discuss current research trends and career choices in machine learning. While all presenters will be female, all genders are invited to attend.
We strongly encourage female students, post-docs and researchers in all areas of machine learning to submit an abstract (500 words or less) describing either new or previously published research. Authors of accepted abstracts will be asked to present their work in a poster session. A few authors will be selected to give 15 minutes oral presentations.

Evaluation criteria: Submissions will be peer reviewed. Abstracts will be evaluated on scientific merit and relevance to the community. To facilitate the peer review process, we encourage authors to sign up as reviewers when submitting abstracts.
Registration is free. Partial scholarships will be provided to female students and postdoctoral attendees with accepted abstracts to offset travel costs.
