Mission

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.

Program

All events will be held in the East Ballroom A at the Vancouver Convention Center.
