Review of applications ends on November 3rd. No passes will be granted after that time. You will be able to pick up your credentials at the main registration desk, credentials are not transferable. Each member of your team attending the conference needs to submit an application.
Journalists who are given accreditation will receive:
Complimentary registration for the Main Conference
Access to the NIPS press conference and resources.
Access to Wi-Fi
Currently the Press Pass grants access to the main conference. Plans to expand that access are in progress. All accredited journalists will be given the same level of access to the conference and its activites.
Some information presented at NIPS may be proprietary or off the record. Accredited journalists attending the conference will be provided guidelines in advance of the conference. Cameras, filming or on the record taping, if permitted, will be restricted to specific places and times. Interviews should be scheduled with the communications teams of the interviewee and take place off site.
For Attendees: In advance of attending the conference this year, you may want to to check in with the communications or media team that manages media interaction with your work. A few key things to remember when showing public work in a space with active media teams:
Nametags for reporters will be distinct from from the tags of general attendees.
Check with your media team, or manager about what stratagy your group intends to follow regarding interactions with the media.
If you are unsure about how to react or respond, direct the member of the media to speak with your communications team member.
