Special thanks to our invited speakers:
The objective of this workshop is to produce +70 MLBriefs IPOL reproducible publications during the course of three days.
State of the art in ML, Computer Vision, Image Processing…

Organizing teamThis workshop is hosted by the Centre Borelli, ENS Paris-Saclay. It is organized by Quentin Bammey (Centre Borelli, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org), as well as Jeremy Anger (Centre Borelli, Kayrros), Tina Nikoukhah (Centre Borelli), and Gabriele Facciolo (Centre Borelli).
Call for PapersAuthors are invited to work on their method and prepare submissions during the MLBriefs 3 workshop.
Submissions consist of an online demonstrator of a method, with a paper describing and analysing the method. Starting from a working code, you will be taught how to create a demonstrator during the workshop. The companion paper describes the method and experiments on it.
Authors can submit their works in two tracks:
- MLBriefs track
- In the MLBriefs track, the online demonstrator is accompanied by a typically short paper (around 5 single-columns pages) that describes the method. The paper is expected to contain a description of the implemented method and its parameters, as well as experiments that highlights its strengths and shortcomings. In the MLBriefs track, only the paper and the demonstrator are peer-reviewed; the implementation itself is not peer-reviewed.
- Regular IPOL track
- Regular IPOL papers place are more comprehensive, and typically longer than MLBriefs papers. The description of the method is expected to be exhaustive, and supported by pseudo-code descriptions. Emphasis is placed on the reproducibility of the work:
- If a model is trained, all information related to the data and the training should be provided in the article.
- The article should contain enough information to recode the method from scratch, producing the exact same results as the submitted code.
- In addition to the paper and online demonstrator, the review process will include the code, to ensure that the submitted code exactly matches the article description.
The submitted method is not required to be novel, it is actually encouraged to prepare a submission for a method that has already been published elsewhere, by the authors or not. Note that, while it is allowed to prepare a submission based on an existing implementation of a method, the code must be distributed under a licence permitting its use online on ipol.im, and ideally its redistribution.
Authors are especially encouraged to prepare submissions of two kinds:
- Companion submissions to methods they have already published elsewhere. An online demonstrator of the method on ipol.im, and the reproducibility guarantees provided by regular IPOL papers, will give more visibility to your method.
- While benchmarking algorithms and comparing one's method to the state-of-the art in view of a publication, authors often have to make run other people code and experiment on other methods. A MLBriefs submission can easily be created starting from there, and will valorize the authors background research work.
The submissions will be reviewed based on the quality of the description and experiments, not on whether the method actually produces good results. The articles should highlight both the strengths and limitations of the method.
Accepted articles from both tracks will be published on the IPOL website, alongside their demo. Please use the IPOL template to create demos. You can download it directly here or view it on Overleaf. More information and advice on how to write an article for IPOL and MLBriefs can be found on the Day 3 slides.
Submission of MLBriefs papers
MLBriefs trackMLBriefs-track submissions can be sent through Google Forms.
IPOL trackIPOL-track submissions should be submitted via OJS.
- Register in the system (please don't use a gmail email address).
- Once registered, create a new article submission.
- The deadline for submitting your paper is on the 30th June, 2023
- Make sure your submission includes:
- Your article in PDF.
- A link to the github repository of your code, with the branch and rev to be reviewed and used, or an archive in the ZIP format containing your code without large files (the archive should not exceed 20 Mb).
- If applicable, a link to the large files in the code, that were not included above. (e.g. model weights)
- If the submission is based on an existing code, the URL to the original code (e.g. github link including a commit hash). If possible, specify the license of the original code.
VenueThe conference was held at ENS Paris-Saclay.
