We strongly encourage students, post-docs and researchers who primarily identify as latinx in all areas of machine learning to submit an abstract describing new, previously, or concurrently published research. 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. Submissions will be peer-reviewed in a double-blind setting. Authors are encouraged to sign up to review for LXAI, with a sign-up option available upon submission.
Submissions may be up to two pages including all figures and tables, with an additional page for references submitted as a link to a PDF. The submissions should be in a single column. They should be typeset using 11-point or larger fonts and should have at least 1-inch margin all around. 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. Submissions must be self-contained and include all figures, tables, and references.
The submission deadline is 11:59 PM EST, September 20, 2018. Please note that no extensions will be offered for submissions.
