Event description


Latinx in AI at ICML 2020

The Official LXAI Research Workshop is co-located with ICML 2020 Although the original venue was supposed to be in Vienna-Austria, at the Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center; due to the Covid19 outbreak, the workshop as well as the conference will be done virtually in the correponding dates. The details can be found on the web page

Full Details:

This workshop will have a virtual program with invited keynote speakers, oral speakers as well as Poster presenters


Our mission is to increase representation of our communities at the main conference and create a platform allowing our members to share their work, gain access to mentoring, collaborations, and networking opportunities with other researchers in artificial intelligence. There will be a panel discussion and a mentoring session to discuss current research trends and career choices in artificial intelligence and machine learning. The event aims to highlight work by Latinx researchers and we invite everyone to attend.



Update: There will not be any networking reception because the workshop will be virtual. However we will create the appropriate strategies in order to create the appropriate scenario, making it possible for the participants to establish future possible collaborations and contacts. We will also have a preliminar mentor program for students interested in looking for careers.

Travel Grants: Since the workshop will be virtual, the grants obtained by the participants, will be used for th registration of the participants to the main conferenece and other workshops.
