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

Ulrike von Luxburg and Isabelle Guyon, General Chairs of NIPS 2017
Samy Bengio, General Chair of NIPS 2018
Terrence Sejnowski, NIPS Foundation President
and the NIPS Foundation Board

Schedule Overview (schedule is incomplete)


* Symposia included with Conference or Workshops ticket


The Thirty-first Annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) is a multi-track machine learning and computational neuroscience conference that includes invited talks, demonstrations, symposia and oral and poster presentations of refereed papers. Following the conference, there are workshops which provide a less formal setting.
