Countdown to ICLR2020

  • Meet all the authors of some of your favourite papers and speak to them live and over chat.
  • Speak to our keynote speakers like Ruha Benjamin, Leslie Kaelbling and Michael Jordan.
  • Hang out at the social for Women in Machine Learning, wine and cheese for lapsed-physicists, or with Rich Sutton to talk about bitter lessons.
  • Speak to our sponsors about full-time and internship opportunities and their work.
  • Most importantly, connect with other participants and meet new people from across our field and around the world.

  • Keynote talks. Invited talks are pre-recorded and will be released each day. Each talk has a live Q&A session so we can interact in real-time with the speakers.
  • Papers: 5min talks take the place of posters for all papers and 15mins for longer talks. All are pre-recorded and are also released each day.
  • Poster sessions. You interact with posters by joining a video meeting with the authors. These occur at timezones across the world and several times per day.
  • Socials. You can also meet new people and other participants by using the virtual rooms and socials that are organised throughout the week.
  • Schedule. You can find the times for all the live sessions using the Schedule, where you can choose your timezone and find live sessions that work for you.
  • Sponsors. Meet our sponsors by visiting the virtual sponsor hall.
  • Help. If you have any questions about planning your time or finding information, look under Help for answers to frequently asked questions, and technical support where you can chat directly with some of our on call volunteers.

🧠 Other Considerations

  • Participants must abide by our code of conduct, which has been updated for the virtual conference. We have several reporting mechanisms for unacceptable behaviour.
  • We have restricted settings to prevent phenomena like ‘zoom bombing’.
  • We have done our best to test the site to work in all countries.
  • The structure of the conference is such that much of it can work in any timezone because of its asynchronous nature.
  • Ultimately, we hope that the conference still provides new opportunities to meet with new people and have fun.
  • About two weeks after the conference all the videos will be made available for everyone to watch.
