How do I register for the workshop/dinner?

You can register for the 2019 WiML workshop on our Eventbrite page. Make sure to register before tickets sell out! We will announce when the pre-workshop dinner registration opens (end of November).

The workshop is sold out. How do I add myself to the waitlist?

Once the WiML workshop tickets sell out, you will automatically be able to add yourself to the waitlist on our Eventbrite page. However, the waitlist is capped, so once that is full too, we will no longer be able to accept new registrations.

Is the workshop dinner free?

Yes, it is!

Can people who are not registered for WiML register for the dinner?

If space allows. We are prioritizing WiML presenters and attendees, as there is a limited number of tickets.

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. You should only register to NeurIPS if you are interested in attending NeurIPS activities beyond WiML.

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! To do so, please register on Eventbrite. Note, however, that all speakers and poster presenters will primarily identify as women or nonbinary, as our goal is to promote them and their work 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.

To apply for a Canadian visa, I was asked to provide an address in Canada. What should I write?

NeurIPS was instructed by Canadian immigration to use the address of the Convention Center as the local address: 1055 Canada Pl, Vancouver, BC V6C 0C3, Canada

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 free onsite childcare at WiML this year. WiML attendees who are not registered with NeurIPS can still use NeurIPS’ childcare program on Sunday December 8th and Monday December 9th, 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.

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.

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.

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.

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