March 9, 2020 UPDATE: ACM CHIL 2020 will be NOT held on April 2-4, 2020.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, we are actively working with our venue and speakers to determine new conference dates, targeting mid-July to mid-August and doing our best to manage proximity to conferences such as ICML 2020 and MLHC 2020.

For those attendees who have not yet registered, we have extended the early registration date to March 12. Registration will be closed on March 12, 2020 (after the early deadline), and reopened once we have a firm new date set.

At this time, we ask that attendees keep their registration and hotel reservation with the Sheraton until additional information becomes available.

We are actively working to plan around COVID-19, and will send out additional information as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.


The ACM Conference on Health, Inference, and Learning (CHIL), targets a cross-disciplinary representation of clinicians and researchers (from industry and academia) in machine learning, health policy, causality, fairness, and other related areas. ACM CHIL 2020 builds on the success of the ML4H Unconference, held in Toronto, and the Machine Learning for Health Workshop at NeurIPS, held in Vancouver. 

The 2020 conference will be held in Toronto from April 2-4, 2020. Our structure is designed to spark insight-driven discussions on new and emerging ideas that may lead to collaboration and discussion.
