The conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) 2020 kicked off on Sunday 6th December and will run until Saturday 12th December. Here, we give a brief summary of many of the planned sessions and events for the week ahead. The public version of the schedule can be found here. You will need to be registered to access all of the content. Note that we have included links to the public versions in this article.
The workshop proposals should be up to 3 pages long and include the following: · A concise title of the workshop. The organizers should add a short biographical note with their areas of expertise and their experience in organizing workshops or related events. The outline should also address the workshop's: If the workshop has been organized before, either in the frame of TPDL or any other conference, the organizers should also report the previous attendance, the outcomes, any post-workshop publication venue, etc. Workshop papers papers will be published in the Springer CCIS series. The best workshop papers will be invited to a special issue of the journal Computer Science and Information Systems.
The expected number of submissions is at least 5 for half day workshops and at least 8 for full day ones. Workshops that do not reach the suggested target might not be activated. Workshop schedule: each workshop will be assigned a number of slots (from 1 to 3 slots) during the conference days. A slot can vary from 1 to 2.5 hours. The distribution of slots will take into account the accepted papers and workshop organization.
We also especially encourage students from underrepresented minorities to participate. Hands-on programming labs are a core part of our curriculum, so having some programming knowledge (specifically Python) will help participants get more out of the workshop. However, programming knowledge is not required; the workshop will include a track for participants who are completely new to programming. Experience with typical undergraduate math (calculus, linear algebra) and statistics (intro probability) is also helpful, but not required. The workshop will be run on Eastern Time, though students from outside this timezone are welcome to apply.
