Statement on inappropriate behavior
December 17, 2017
NIPS has a responsibility to provide an inclusive and welcoming environment for everyone in the fields of AI and machine learning. Unfortunately, several events held at (or in conjunction with) the 2017 conference fell short of these standards.
We are determined to do better in 2018 and beyond. Our immediate actions include: recruiting a Diversity and Inclusion Chair, strengthening our Code of Conduct, and formalizing procedures for reporting and communicating concerns. All chairs, attendees and sponsors will be required to acknowledge and abide by our Code of Conduct.
We welcome comments emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
