The ICLR 2022 organizers put together an exciting program of invited talks, contributed research papers, socials, and workshops. To jump right into the conference program, we recommend the conference schedule to get started. You can also find more details about the virtual conference format in the opening remarks from the organizing committee. Read on below to learn more about how to use all elements of the virtual conference site.
A 10 mb of inbound bandwidth is recommended.
Navigating the Website
You may access all parts of the virtual conference using the top menu bar. Check the Schedule to get an overview of when the live sessions for all events are taking place. You may navigate all the papers in the Papers section of the Main Conference. You may search for titles and authors or look through all papers by skimming titles and bookmarking them. You can bookmark other sessions as well. If you go to your name in the top right corner and click on My Bookmarks in the dropdown menu, you can download the schedule with all sessions you bookmarked or you can subscribe to your bookmarks inyour calendar.
All registered attendees will have access to Rocket.Chat, a separate Rocket.Chat account is not needed. If you have problems with Rocket.Chat try refreshing the page. If that does not work try logging out and then logging back in.
Each session has a Rocket.Chat channel. Questions for the speakers should be posted there. Other participants that are also interested in the question can comment or put emoji on the post to increase its visibility. Eventually, the moderator will select questions to ask the speaker. Speakers will be able to continue answering questions on Rocket.Chat after the end of their talk for approximately one hour.
The poster sessions will be held in GatherTown. You can access the poster in GatherTown by clicking "Visit Poster at Spot XX in Virtual World" on the paper's page. GatherTown requires a registration.
This is a cautionary tale about timezones. Several attendees have noticed that the times shown in the virtual website appeared incorrect. The problem was that they chose a timezone that did not adjust for daylight savings time. We highly recommend picking a timezome based off a nearby city, especially if your area observes daylight savings time. Timezones are political and complex and thus confusing. Please check your timezone, and preferably choose a zone based on a city. Note that we are currently in Daylight Savings Time rather than Standard time in most, but not all of the US and Europe.
We encourage everyone to visit the sponsor hall just like you would at the physical conference.
Some sponsors have a Topia virtual (spatial) world. Chromium browsers work best in spatial worlds. When authenticating choose "Sign in with Email" in red rather than authenticating with Facebook or Google, and use your ICLR email address.
