ML and AI paper submissions need to be made much more accessible. Everyone is talking about AI. They are using scandolous stock photos, but that is because no one can understand your research. 😉 Please do not assume math PhDs and rocket scientists as audiences. If including code and data is not possible because of compute requirements, consider providing a simulative virtualized environment for engineers, entrepreneurs, and experts to play with. Also, write an accompanying blog.
Here are top conferences or organizations where research papers can be submitted. (updated June 1)
Journal of Machine Learning Research
The Journal of Machine Learning Research (JMLR or jmlr@csail) provides an international forum for the electronic and paper publication of high-quality scholarly articles in all areas of machine learning. All published papers are freely available online.
Neural Information Processing Systems*
The Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) Foundation is a non-profit corporation whose purpose is to foster the exchange of research on neural information processing systems i.e. a field which benefits from a combined view of biological, physical, mathematical, and computational sciences. NIPS Foundation is primarily focused on the NIPS Conference.

International Conference on Machine Learning
The International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML ) is the leading international academic conference in machine learning.
It merges International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (AAMAS), International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI), European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI), and The International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning – (ICCBR).
International Conference on Learning Representations
International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR) is co-chaired by Yoshua Bengio of Université de Montreal and Yann LeCun of New York University and Facebook.
Conference (or Computational) Learning Theory
Association for Computational Learning (ACL) is in charge of the organization of the COnference Learning Theory (COLT ), formerly known as the conference on Computational Learning Theory
Association for Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence
The Association for Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (AUAI) is a non-profit organization focused on organizing the annual Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (UAI) and, more generally, on promoting research in pursuit of advances in knowledge representation, learning and reasoning under uncertainty.
International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Statistics
International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Statistics (AISTATS).
Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence
Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) (formerly the American Association for Artificial Intelligence) is a nonprofit scientific society devoted to advancing the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines.
