The Women in Machine Learning (WiML) workshop was founded in 2006 to forge connections within the relatively small community of women working in machine learning, to encourage mentorship, exchange of ideas, and promote communication. The program features 4 invited talks, 4 breakout sessions each having 2-8 parallel webinars, a panel with discussions on “industry/academic research, how to choose your path” and “post-pandemic adjustment and tips”, a mentoring social and 4 sponsor expo talks. Please refer to https://wimlworkshop.org/icml2021/program/ for more information.
The workshop attracts representatives from both academia and industry, whose contributed talks showcase some of the cutting-edge research done by women. In addition to technical presentations and discussion, the workshop aims to incite debate on promising research avenues and career choices for machine learning professionals. Details about WiML’s history and past events can be found at www.wimlworkshop.org. WiML workshops are overseen by the WiML Board of Directors, who select and oversee the organizing committee for each year’s workshop.
