WiML is excited to announce a Virtual Social @ ICLR 2021 involving a Virtual Panel and a Socializing Session. During the Virtual Panel, we hope to discuss how we can start and navigate careers through the COVID-19 pandemic. The panel features ML researchers at various career stages who will talk about their experience networking, job hunting, collaborating and/or starting a new position in a primarily online environment. After the panel, we will adjourn to the icebreaker.video platform for socializing.
Our panelists are:
Candace Ross (PhD student in Computer Science, MIT)
Christina Papadimitriou (Machine Learning Engineer, JPMorgan Chase)
Claire Vernade (Research Scientist, DeepMind, London)
Po-Ling Loh (Lecturer in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, University of Cambridge)
Sinead Williamson (Assistant Professor of Statistics, University of Texas at Austin)
The panel will be moderated by Ehi Nosakhare (Senior Data and Applied Science Manager, Microsoft).
Everyone registered for ICLR is encouraged to attend! We expect all attendees to adhere to the WiML Code of Conduct: https://wimlworkshop.org/conduct/.
