Twenty-Third Annual Conference
on Neural Information Processing Systems


You are invited to participate in the Twenty-Third Annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems, which is the premier scientific meeting on Neural Computation.


The NIPS Conference, Symposia and Tutorial Program will be held at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver, in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.


A one-day Tutorial Program will take place on Monday, December 6, 2010 prior to the opening of the Conference.  The program will offer a choice of six two-hour tutorials by leading scientists. The topics span a wide range of subjects including Neuroscience, Learning Algorithms and Theory, Bioinformatics, Image Processing, and Data Mining.


The NIPS Conference features a single track program, with contributions from a large number of intellectual communities. Presentation topics include: Algorithms and Architectures; Applications; Brain Imaging; Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence; Control and Reinforcement Learning; Emerging Technologies; Learning Theory; Neuroscience; Speech and Signal Processing; and Visual Processing.  All papers are rigorously reviewed. The Conference begins on the evening of Monday, December 6, 2010 with the Poster and Demo Sessions.  Instead of a seated banquet, dinner will be served at food and beverage stations located on the second and third floors so you may dine while enjoying the posters and demonstrations.


The Poster Sessions will take place Monday through Wednesday evenings, December 6 – 8, 2010, during the Conference.  The sessions offer high-quality posters and an opportunity for researchers to share their work and exchange ideas in a collegial setting.  The majority of contributions accepted at NIPS are presented as posters.


The Demonstrations take place on Tuesday, December 7 and Wednesday, December 8, 2009 between 7:30 p.m. and midnight. It enables researchers to highlight scientific advances, systems, and technologies in ways that go beyond conventional poster presentations. It provides a unique forum for demonstrating advanced technologies — both hardware and software — and fostering the direct exchange of knowledge.




Following the regular program of the Neural Information Processing Systems 2009 conference in Vancouver, BC, Canada, four mini-symposia will be held in parallel during the afternoon of Thursday, December 9, 2010, in the Hyatt Regency, Vancouver, BC, Canada.


The Post-Conference Workshop Program takes place in Whistler, B.C. at the Westin Resort and Spa and the Hilton Whistler Resort and Spa Friday, December 10 and Saturday, December 11, 2010. There will be 16 workshops covering a wide range of topics from Neuroscience to Machine Learning.  The workshop program schedule allows time for informal discussions, skiing and other winter sports.
