Compared to virtual #ICLR2020, I found virtual #ICML2020 lacks a few features.

1. Papers are scheduled for 2 days. instead of 1. I prefer to collect all papers of interest for the day and then attend only those. Now I need to keep in mind if I attended a poster previously.

2. Videos are 10-15 minutes long. This forces me to *really* want to attend the poster. Having tl;dr version (<5 min) or short/long videos as in ICLR is preferred.
3. 1 hour of the poster session is often not enough for the amount of content proposed. In session 1, I have 5+ posters, 15 minutes each. It physically doesn't fit into the slot.
