The Workshop for Women in Machine Learning is a one day event with invited speakers, oral presentations, and posters. The event brings together 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 attend. There will also be mentoring sessions, career advice tables from sponsor companies, 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. This is a technical workshop with exciting technical talks.
