Heartbleed TLS/SSL Bug
Like many web services, nips.cc was vulnerable to the heartbleed bug. The vulnerability was patched as soon as the patch was released and we have since re-keyed our SSL certificate. We do not have evidence that anyone took advantage of the vulnerability on nips.cc, but we encourage concerned users to update their password.
The Foundation: 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 in their biological, technological, mathematical, and theoretical aspects. Neural information processing is a field which benefits from a combined view of biological, physical, mathematical, and computational sciences.
The primary focus of the NIPS Foundation is the presentation of a continuing series of professional meetings known as the Neural Information Processing Systems Conference, held over the years at various locations in the United States, Canada and Spain.
