Research contributions from the community form an integral part of our program and we invite papers for oral and poster presentation in the workshop. We encourage authors to not only submit finished pieces of work, but also works currently in progress that you would like to announce and get feedback on. Accepted submissions will have the option to be considered for a JMLR special issue for the workshop proceedings.
