Check out their volunteering and scholarship opportunities: https://twimlcon.com/schol-vol/ About TWIMLcon: AI Platforms TWIMLcon will offer real world, practical discussions that help you grow your knowledge, skills and career, plus great opportunities to share, learn and connect with a community of like minded data science, machine learning, platform engineering and MLOps practitioners and leaders. Some of the topics include: - Overcoming the barriers to getting ML and DL models into production - How to apply ideas like AutoML, MLOps and DevOps to your machine learning workflow - Experiences and lessons learned in delivering platform and infrastructure support for data management, experiment management, and model deployment - Platform deployment stories from leading tech companies and traditional enterprises - Organizational and cultural best practices for success TWIMLcon: AI Platforms is brought to you by the team behind the TWIML AI Podcast (a.k.a. This Week in Machine Learning & AI). The conference has its roots in a series of interviews on the topic of AI Platforms published back in the fall of 2018. The series—which featured interviews with ML Platforms and Infrastructure engineers and leaders from Facebook, Airbnb, LinkedIn, OpenAI, Shell and Comcast—resonated very strongly with listeners and remains one of our most popular series to this day. We hope you’ll join us for what is shaping up to be an important community event.

We welcome abstract submissions, in theory, methodology, as well as applications. Abstracts may describe completed research or work-in-progress. While the presenting author need not be the first author of the work, we encourage authors to highlight the contribution of latinx individuals — particularly the presenting author — in the abstract. Authors of accepted abstracts will be asked to present their work in a poster session. A few authors will be selected to give 15-minute oral presentations. Authors accepted to present will be offered presentation coaching. Submissions will be peer-reviewed. Authors are encouraged to sign up to review for LXAI as well. Submission Requirements: All submissions will be double-blind (they should not contain author names) and may be up to two pages including all figures and tables, with an additional page for references. The papers must be submitted as a PDF created with the NeurIPS style format (template also available in Overleaf ). All submissions must be in English. Submissions that do not follow these guidelines risk being rejected without consideration of their merits. Submissions must state the research problem, motivation, and technical contribution including experimental results when applicable. Submissions must be self-contained and include all figures, tables, and references. The submission deadline is 23:59 September 13th, 2019 AoE. Please note that no extensions will be offered for submissions.
