The LXAI Workshop at ICML will be hosted virtually on Monday, July 13th, 2020.
To attend the LXAI workshop, please register in our following Eventbrite page: JOIN US
The workshop is a one-day event with invited speakers, oral presentations, and posters. The event brings together faculty, graduate students, research scientists, and engineers for an opportunity to connect and exchange ideas. There will be a panel discussion and a mentoring session to discuss current research trends and career choices in artificial intelligence and machine learning. While all presenters will identify primarily as latinx, all are invited to attend.
We strongly encourage students, post-docs and researchers who primarily identify as latinx in all areas of machine learning to submit an abstract describing new, work-in-progress, previously published, or concurrently published research. We welcome abstract submissions in theory, methodology, and applications. While the presenting author needs not be the first author of the work, we encourage authors to highlight the contribution of latinx individuals — particularly the presenting author — in the abstract. While the event focuses primarily on researchers who identify as latinx, everyone is invited to attend. Authors are also encouraged to sign up to review for LXAI, with a sign-up option available upon submission.
Submissions will be double-blind peer-reviewed and may be up to two pages including all figures and tables, with an additional page for references submitted as a PDF. The submissions should strictly follow the guidelines provided by the ICML 2020 Style Template to avoid the risk of being rejected without consideration of their merits. Submissions must state the research problem, motivation, and technical contribution. Submissions must be self-contained and include all figures, tables, and references. Authors of accepted abstracts will be asked to present their work in a poster session. A few authors will be selected to give 10–15 minute oral presentations.
The submission deadline is April 18th, 2020 Anywhere on Earth. Please note that no extensions will be offered for submissions.Submit Abstract
