NeurIPS is here and we will have a dedicated Competition Track for the sixth time!
Social Event and Poster Session
We are glad to invite you to our social event in New Orleans at the Conference on 29th November at 6 PM (Ballroom C).
The event will be opened by an invited talk from two pioneers of challenges in ML, Isabelle Guyon and Evelyne Viegas, who will discuss the role of competitions at NeurIPS, their evolution, and opportunities.
The invited talk will be followed by a poster session with the competition organizers presenting their challenges and the highlights of the past few months.
Competitions have a valuable place in research and in solving complex problems.
We encourage you to take advantage of this social opportunity to learn more about ML challenges and application trends.
This year we selected competitions covering a broad spectrum of challenges and disciplines such as AutoML, Graph Representation Learning, Security, Machine Learning for Physical and Life Sciences, Natural Language Processing and Understanding, Robotics, and Multi-Agent Systems.
See the complete list of the selected competitions for this year: https://neurips.cc/Conferences/2022/CompetitionTrack
We are excited to finally meet new and old faces of both organizers and participants who made the competition track a success during these years. There will be pizza, salad, and soft drinks for everyone!
After the success of the past editions, in addition to the physical event, the Competition Track will feature online workshops during the virtual week.
The online workshops aim to reach a larger audience and allow researchers worldwide interested in specific ML challenges to foster collaboration, exchange ideas, and grow a sense of community.
Each workshop is a focused session with invited talks from winners and experts of the specific competition. Check the schedule of each workshop on the conference competitions page or look at the general virtual program below.
We want to thank all the reviewers, organizers and competition participants for the hard work and integrity over the past months of preparation. We look forward to meeting you all in NOLA and virtually for two inspiring weeks of science.
