The AutoML workshop series

The AutoML workshop has been held yearly at ICML since 2014 and additionally at ECMLPKDD in 2017. These workshops have had a healthy overlap in attendance with a series of workshops on Bayesian optimization (BayesOpt, 2011-2017) and Meta-Learning (2017-2018) that have been held at NeurIPS. Workshop attendance of AutoML@ICML has been steadily increasing, to almost 300 registered participants at ICML 2018 (according to the Whova app), making it the 3rd largest workshop.
