Sponsorship

Corporate sponsorship of the annual NIPS Conference contributes to the successful outcome of each year’s conference. NIPS appreciates your support and participation and wants your sponsorship to meet the needs of your company.  Neural Information Processing Systems will send a contract and the Code of Conduct; upon signing the Neural Information Processing Systems contract, receiving payment, and COI,  your booth will be assigned and your logo will be posted on the website.   Access to the recruitment database and complimentary registrations will be processed upon receipt of payment and the Neural Information Processing Systems contract.

The Neural Information Processing Systems Foundation is deeply grateful to our sponsors who provide funds that are essential to the continued success of the conference. An important use of those funds is the support of the next generation of AI researchers who need financial assistance in order to participate in the conference. This year we have undertaken several new initiatives to amplify this effort.

Over recent years, some members of our community have observed the lavishness of some of the sponsor exhibit spaces and asked whether some portion of the investment sponsors are making in flashy exhibits might be redirected to supporting the scientific mission of the conference.

To that end, we are reducing the size of the exhibition space and limiting the complexity of the booths, which can save the sponsors money, which in turn may be used to support interns and students to attend the conference. For sponsors, the conference will continue to be an extraordinary recruiting opportunity.

We invite general sponsors for Neural Information Processing Systems 2019 in Vancouver at the Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond levels. For further information, please contact us.

NIPS Policy for Sponsor Events 

NIPS welcomes sponsors at the meeting and provides adequate space for them to interact with NIPS attendees. Sponsor parties during the NIPS Conference should be held after 7:00 pm to allow time for attendees to go the poster sessions. NIPS discourages corporate events that conflict with any official NIPS events, conference sessions or poster sessions. 

NIPS does not organize sponsor presentations at the Conference or Workshops and discourages parallel meetings organized by sponsors. Satellite meetings should be organized by sponsors immediatley before or after the NIPS meeting.

                      The Sponsor Portal will open on June 25, 2019
