NIPS Conference 2010 - Vancouver   

24th Annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS), Vancouver 2010

You are invited to participate in the Twenty-Fourth Annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems, which is the premier scientific meeting on Neural Computation.

A one-day Tutorial Program offered a choice of six two-hour tutorials by leading scientists. The topics span a wide range of subjects including Neuroscience, Learning Algorithms and Theory, Bioinformatics, Image Processing, and Data Mining.

The NIPS Conference featured a single track program, with contributions from a large number of intellectual communities. Presentation topics include: Algorithms and Architectures; Applications; Brain Imaging; Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence; Control and Reinforcement Learning; Emerging Technologies; Learning Theory; Neuroscience; Speech and Signal Processing; and Visual Processing.

There were two Posner Lectures named in honor of Ed Posner who founded NIPS. Ed worked on communications and information theory at Caltech and was an early pioneer in neural networks. He organized the first NIPS conference and workshop in Denver in 1989 and incorporated the NIPS Foundation in 1992. He was an inpiring teacher and an effective leader. His untimely death in a bicycle accident in 1993 was a great loss to our community. Posner Lecturers were Josh Tenebaum and Michael Jordan.

The Poster Sessions offered high-quality posters and an opportunity for researchers to share their work and exchange ideas in a collegial setting. The majority of contributions accepted at NIPS were presented as posters.

The Demonstrations enabled researchers to highlight scientific advances, systems, and technologies in ways that go beyond conventional poster presentations. It provided a unique forum for demonstrating advanced technologies — both hardware and software — and fostering the direct exchange of knowledge.

Comment4 Davor (staff), February 14, 2011 at 12:29 p.m.:

The Spotlights have been filmed and this year we are proposing to create a first special issue of a new Journal of Machine Learning Video Abstracts from the recordings of these spotlights. Hošefully they will be published in the next few weeks.
