Marc’Aurelio Ranzato, General Chair NeurIPS 2021
I am very pleased to announce that the schedule of NeurIPS 2021 is now available here. As mentioned in my earlier preview, the conference starts on Monday December 6, a day entirely dedicated to Tutorials on a broad range of topics. The subsequent four days will showcase the main program, which is structured in three sessions a day, each about 3 hour long. A major highlight of the main program is the fantastic set of invited speakers and discussion panels, and of course, the 2000 or so contributed papers whose selection took more than four months of hard work by our pool of expert reviewers, area chairs and senior area chairs.
Concurrent with the main program, there will also be demos and presentations by authors of our new track on Datasets & Benchmarks. During the intermissions, there will be lots of other events to choose from. There will be several Socials, Affinity Workshops, and presentations by participants of Competitions.
The following week, on Monday December 13 and Tuesday December 14 the conference will close with Workshops, typically focussed on highly technical topics.
Like in previous years, there will be about 40 Meetups around the world, to enable people from local communities to attend, either virtually or physically, and enjoy the conference together.
Please, have fun browsing the schedule and plan your attendance. Remember also that you can bookmark events and then sync them to your calendar. Remember that registration is required to access interactive content like poster sessions and to watch video broadcasts, as only tutorials and invited talks do not require registration.
See you soon at NeurIPS 2021!
