We are thrilled to announce that the NeurIPS Competition Track is now accepting proposals for the upcoming conference. NeurIPS hosts a competition track to promote innovative research and foster collaboration across different scientific disciplines.
We are looking for proposals for competitions that tackle important and challenging open problems in machine learning and AI. We encourage proposals that involve real-world datasets and have clear scientific questions in areas such as healthcare, biology, education, RL and robotics, NLP, and more.
The NeurIPS Competition Track offers a unique opportunity to showcase your research and compete with other leading researchers in the field. Winning teams will have the chance to present their work at the conference and receive recognition for their achievements.
We encourage all researchers, academics, and industry professionals working in machine learning and AI to submit proposals and take part in this exciting opportunity. We look forward to seeing the innovative ideas and solutions that will emerge from this year’s competition track.
To improve scientific rigour, transparency, and reproducibility, we introduce new publication requirements for competition reports co-authored by both organizers and participants.
Accepted competitions in 2023 will be required to submit their post-competition analyses as papers to the 2024 NeurIPS D&B track (next year).
In order to ensure that the competition proposal and results are consistent, reviewers in 2024 will have access to the 2023 proposals. To minimize experimental bias, any deviations from the proposal will need to be justified.
This move is expected to encourage a more systematic and rigorous approach to scientific competitions, leading to more meaningful contributions to the field of AI and machine learning.
To submit a proposal, check the call on the NeurIPS website and follow the instructions. The submission deadline is April 27th, 2023 23.59 AOE, so be sure to get your proposals in before then!
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
