Is this your first time to a top conference? Have you ever wanted your own work recognized by this huge and active community? Do you encounter difficulties in polishing your ideas, experiments, paper writing, etc? Then, this session is exactly for you!

This year, we are organizing this special New In ML workshop, colocating with ICML 2020. We are targeting primarily junior researchers. We invite top researchers to share with you their experience on diverse aspects. The biggest goal is to help you publish papers at next year's top conferences (e.g. ICML, NeurIPS), and generally provide you with the guidance needed to contribute to ML research fully and effectively!
