Is this your first time submitting to a top conference? Have you ever wanted your work recognized by a large and active community? Do you want to improve your paper writing, experiments, ideas, etc? Then, this workshop is exactly for you!

For the second year, we are organizing a special NewInML workshop, with NeurIPS 2020. Our workshop welcomes contributors new to machine learning research. We have invited top NeurIPS reviewers to review your work and share their experiences with you in poster sessions and mentoring sessions. The best papers will get oral presentations and even awards!

Our mission is to help you publish papers at next year’s NeurIPS conference, and generally provide you with the guidance you need to contribute to ML research fully and effectively!

Call for Papers

Your ticket to NeurIPS 2020? Maybe!

Since this is an exercise in writing good NeurIPS papers, authors are requested to submit papers respecting the NeurIPS format and instructions: https://nips.cc/Conferences/2020/CallForPapers. The page limit is 8 pages + extra references, but shorter papers with quality content are welcome. We restrict submissions to first authors with no prior accepted publications at NeurIPS (main conference) and which are not under review or accepted elsewhere. Papers with prior rejections should be revised before submission to NewInML. We recommend sharing previous reviews with your new reviewers.

For a full list please see https://neurips.cc/Conferences/2020/PaperInformation/SubjectAreas

Paper submission is through CMT platform: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/NewInML2020

Accepted papers will be reviewed by NeurIPS’s best reviewers and, if accepted, authors will present a talk or a poster at the workshop and receive coaching and mentorship from established researchers.


This will NOT count as an official NeurIPS publication; papers submitted can be revised and submitted to NeurIPS 2021, but you should check the policy of other conferences if you wish to resubmit elsewhere. |
