Last week saw the International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR 2020) go virtual. Over 5600 people, from 89 different countries, registered to participate. Here we provide a round-up of tweets from event participants, speakers and organisers.

1/ Spent the last couple weeks in quarantine obsessively coding a website for Virtual ICLR with @hen_str. We wanted to build something that was fun to browse, async first, and feels alive. pic.twitter.com/mwvp4T3qvt

I'm liking the virtual format of #ICLR. All the papers (sorted by filters) are easily accessible (finding papers in poster sessions can be exhaustive). Let's see how the communication happens virtually.

we didn’t get to talk over coffee or beer… but $100 to register, no air travel, and not missing daily walks with my puppy and kids! Hooray for virtual #iclr2020 https://t.co/IpZhBORzhH

This past week at #ICLR was amazing. It presented my first poster from my recent work “Bilateral Trade Modeling with Graph Neural Networks” at the #PML4DC workshop. A thousand thanks to @m_deff and @bose_joey for the awesome supervision. Paper: https://t.co/twRQ43p6Ar

1. The virtual platform for #ICLR is amazing!
2. How can I be in a dozen places at the same time? The workshops all look exciting, covering so many topics: cancer care, languages, climate change, healthcare, neural network research.
Keynotes begin tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/9nZcUZfeDC

How cool is that !!! 😂😂

A nice summary of all the recent work that has been done in (Vision+Language) space from @deviparikh at #ICLR.#ICLR2020
PS: Other relevant work to ViLBERT which she hinted at are: VLBERT, VisualBERT, UniTER, LXMERT. pic.twitter.com/b8ABWCKGRy

ICLR Town: Pokemon-esque environment to wander around and bump into people, which syncs almost seamlessly with video-chatting capabilities.
What a fun idea for virtual (research) conferences! Thanks @iclr_conf organizers!! #ICLR2020 #iclr

Had a blast at #ICLR2020: especially blown away by the poster sessions!
Here's a non-exhaustive list of papers I took notes on. A little rough, but might be of interest to people interested in QA, text generation, or transformers 🙂https://t.co/Gl8fCajiPc

Similar papers section on #ICLR2020 feels like YouTube recommendations for research (there is even chat for comments). I wish all authors now publish short videos along with their papers. pic.twitter.com/ixPkwMlKgW
