Call for Competitions

We invite competition proposals for the 2017 NIPS Conference. NIPS has had traditionally a demonstration track with competition for best demo (also available for NIPS 2017). The call for competitions corresponds to a completely new NIPS track/special session. Submission deadline is March 15.

Travel Ban

The NIPS Foundation is committed to an open international exchange of information, which may not be possible if there is a US travel ban.

The 2017 NIPS Conference is scheduled to take place in Long Beach on December 4-9.  In the event that it is not possible for an author whose paper is accepted at NIPS to attend, we are exploring ways for authors to present their results through the internet. The 2018 NIPS Conference will return to Montreal.

Our goal is to open NIPS Conferences and Workshops to researchers from all parts of the world and we regret that US government restrictions may make it difficult or impossible for some to participate this year.


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.
