The BayLearn Symposium aims at gathering scientists in machine learning from the San Francisco Bay Area. It promotes community building between local researchers from academic and industrial institutions but also welcomes visitors. This one-day event combines invited talks and posters to foster exchange of ideas.

We encourage the submission of poster abstracts. Acceptable material includes work which has already been submitted or published, preliminary results and controversial findings… All accepted abstracts will be presented as posters, a few will be selected for a 10-minute oral presentation. We do not intend to publish proceedings
, only abstracts will be shared through an online repository. Our primary goal is to foster discussion!
