@baicsworkshop ยท #BAICS2020

The virtual workshop will consist of a mix of pre-recorded and live content, with multiple different ways to participate!

Quick Links:


Throughout the day we will be livestreaming invited talks, contributed talks, spotlight presentations, and a live panel discussion. Please see the Schedule for details on what is being streamed when.

During the livestream, please also join the Rocket Chat to discuss the workshop content with other participants and to ask questions of our speakers.


Our invited speakers and panelists will discuss a mix of curated and audience questions. Topics of discussion are available on the, though submission is now closed.

"Poster" Sessions

For each paper being presented at the workshop, we will host (1) the pre-recorded presentation from SlidesLive, (2) a RocketChat chatroom for text-based discussion, and (3) a Zoom meeting room. All of these can be found from each paper's landing page (which you can access by visiting the Papers page and then clicking on the relevant paper).

The Zoom meeting rooms will be open only during the poster session timeslots (see the Schedule), during which authors will join the meeting rooms to allow you to ask them questions face-to-face. We encourage you to first watch the presentation associated with the paper, and then join the Zoom meeting room to ask questions and engage in further discussion.

Meet and Greet

To try to replicate the in-person aspect of workshops, we are hosting a virtual meet-and-greet. This is based on the Neuromatch "mind-matching" model. Sign ups are now closed.

We will match participants with up to three other people (four total) who have similar interests and who can meet during the same 30-minute timeslot. Then, we will set up a videochat meeting for you to meet and talk about whatever you would like!
