This is the first NIPS edition on "NIPS Competitions". We received 23 competition proposals related to data-driven and live competitions on different aspects of NIPS. Proposals were reviewed by several qualified researchers and experts in challenge organization. Five top-scored competitions were accepted to be run and present their results during the NIPS 2017 Competition track day. Evaluation was based on the quality of data, problem interest and impact, promoting the design of new models, and a proper schedule and managing procedure. Below, you can find the five accepted competitions. Organizers and participants in these competitions will be invited to present their work to this workshop, to be held on December 8th.
