When and where do I submit my abstract?

Submission to the 2019 WiML workshop is now closed. Thanks for your interest. Please check back for the 2020 call for participation.

Do you have formatting guidelines for abstract submission?

Yes. Abstracts must be no more than 1 page (including any references, tables, and figures) submitted as a PDF. Main body text must be minimum 11 point font size and page margins must be minimum 0.75 inches (all sides).

Is WiML an archival venue?

No, WiML is a non-archival venue. This means that, if your contribution is accepted, we will not be asking you to submit a camera-ready version of it, nor will we publish it anywhere (neither online nor in proceedings of any sort). We will only make the title and authors’ names available in the program book.

I'm a man. I was invited to review for WiML. Can I do that?

Yes, please! We welcome reviewers of all genders.

How do I register for the workshop/dinner?

We will announce when registration opens.

Does registering for WiML also mean I'm registered for NeurIPS?

Unfortunately, no. You would still need to register separately for NeurIPS – their registration process can be found here.

Do I have to register for NeurIPS in addition to registering for WiML, in order to attend WiML?

No. WiML registration is separate from NeurIPS registration.

Can I come to the poster session even if I'm not registered for WiML?

Yes, the poster session is also open to all NeurIPS attendees.

I'm a man. Can I attend WiML?

Yes. All genders are welcome to attend! Note however, all speakers and poster presenters will primarily identify as women or nonbinary, as our goal is to promote them within the machine learning community.

Do I need a visa or an electronic travel authorization to travel to Canada to attend WiML?

Please check your entry requirements here.

How much travel funding is available?

Travel funding is distributed based on geographic location. Support varies from year to year, but in the past attendees have received $300-$1000 in travel funding.

Will childcare be available?

With NeurIPS’ help, we are excited to offer childcare at WiML this year. WiML attendees who are not registered with NeurIPS can still use NeurIPS’ childcare program on Monday, the day of WiML Workshop. More details on the childcare program can be found here. Parents must sign up in advance and there may be a refundable deposit or modest co-pay; details are still being worked out. After Monday, WiML attendees would need to be registered with NeurIPS to continue using NeurIPS’ childcare program.

Is there a code of conduct?

Yes. WiML requires all participants and reviewers to abide by our code of conduct.

What is the poster size we should print?

TBD at the moment. Check back for updates.

How can I get more information on workshop logistics, such as transportation, lodging, and roommates?

Check out the logistics page!

I want to support WiML by providing sponsorship / recruiting at the workshop. Who should I talk to?

Thank you for your support! Please contact us.

How can I join the WiML network?

Join our Google Group.

I have a question that's not answered here. How do I reach you?
