The full original call for the submission mentorship program is below is below.


The Submission Mentorship Program focuses on pairing less experienced authors with senior researchers to provide feedback on their paper submission, with the overall goal of improving submission quality and fostering future collaboration. The pairing process will be performed based on common research interests between the mentor and mentees.

Note that mentors will not discuss possible paper ideas with the mentees, and hence, mentees who do not already have a paper idea should not participate in this program. Further, authors who do not intend to submit a paper to ML4H2022 should not participate in this program.

We especially encourage less experienced authors and participants from underrepresented groups to sign up as mentees, as well as senior community members to serve as mentors for these programs. This program involves two months of mentorship. Mentees will receive mentorship throughout various stages of their work, with mentors giving feedback/suggestions for improvement on aspects such as (1) the direction of the design; (2) models and experiments; (3) results analysis; (4) presentation/organization of the final paper they plan to submit to ML4H 2022.

Mentors and mentees who are interested should fill in the corresponding application form below by July 3rd AoE.

Mentees and mentors are encouraged to have bi-weekly one-hour meetings to discuss the paper's progress, i.e., the mentors and mentees will have approximately four one-hour meetings over eight weeks.

  1. July 3-4: Details about mentee-mentor pair-ups are sent out.
  2. July 4-8: Mentees are expected to initiate contact with their mentor and arrange an initial meeting. In this meeting, the mentees should discuss the paper’s idea and outline with the mentors as well as the plan (dates, format, expectations, etc) for their bi-weekly meetings.
  3. July 8 - Sep 1: The mentors and mentees will meet on a bi-weekly basis to work on the paper. After each meeting, the mentees are expected to incorporate the mentors’ feedback and send an updated draft of the paper to the mentors.
  4. Sept 1th: ML4H Submission deadline.

Mentors and mentees will be matched at random based on your shared research areas. The matching process between mentors and mentees will start July 3rd - 4th.
