WiML 2013: Call for Organizers: NOW CLOSED
We are now seeking organizers for the 8th Workshop for Women in Machine Learning (WiML). The workshop will once again be co-located with the Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) conference, and will be held in December 2013 in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Please check our Call for Organizers tab for more details!
WiML 2012 Registration: NOW CLOSED
Registration for the workshop is free. WiML and NIPS registrations are independent - you don't have to sign up for the NIPS workshops to attend WiML.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided on the day of the workshop.
Registration is now closed. If you're interested in attending the workshop and have not yet registered, please email us at wimlworkshop[at]gmail[dot]com
Abstract Submission: NOW CLOSED FOR WiML 2012
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.
For questions / comments regarding your submissions, please email us at wimlworkshop[at]gmail[dot]com
Workshop for Women in Machine Learning
Machine learning is one of the fastest growing areas of computer science research. Search engines, face recognition, DNA sequence analysis, speech and handwriting recognition, credit card fraud detection, premature baby monitoring and autonomous locomotion 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 day-long workshop gives female faculty, research scientists, and graduate students in the machine learning community an opportunity to meet, exchange ideas and learn from each other. Underrepresented minorities and undergraduates interested in machine learning research are encouraged to attend.
