WiML doesn’t have “members” per se, any women working in machine learning can be part of the WiML network. We have a mailing list for anyone to post announcements of interest to the WiML network and an opt-in, necessarily incomplete directory of women working in machine learning.
Our flagship event is the annual WiML Workshop, typically co-located with NIPS, a machine learning conference. We also organize small events (e.g. lunches and receptions) at other machine learning conferences, such as ICML, CoRL, COLT, etc.
Use our mailing list.
Please post this opportunity to our mailing list.
Hanna Wallach, Jennifer Wortman Vaughan, Lisa Wainer, and Angela Yu shared a room at NIPS 2005. Late one night, they talked about how exciting it was that there were FOUR female students at NIPS that year. They tried to list all the women in machine learning they know of and got to 10, then started talking about creating a meeting or gathering for all these women and perhaps others that they didn’t know about. Jenn, Lisa, and Hanna put together a proposal for a session at the 2006 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing that would feature talks and posters by female researchers and students in machine learning. The 1st WiML workshop was co-located with the 2006 Grace Hopper Celeberation. In 2008, WiML Workshop moved to NIPS (renamed NeurIPS in 2018) and there has been a WiML Workshop at NeurIPS every year since. Check out this page for more WiML history!
You can post interesting opportunities and job postings to our mailing list, sponsor us, volunteer at WiML Workshop, use our directory of women in machine learning to find invited speakers or panelists, retweet us, and many others!
