Today, we introduce the competitions that have been accepted at NeurIPS 2022 Competition Track. It seemed especially challenging this year given the number of quality submissions and the limited number that could be accepted. We selected a total of 25 very strong proposals, covering a wide range of areas and subdisciplines. Some of the competitions are completely new, and others are familiar to the NeurIPS community. The selected competitions are now official and ready for the community to participate in. Please check the NeurIPS website for full competition details.
This year will mark the sixth year of NeurIPS having a dedicated competition track. Whether this is the first time you’ve heard about NeurIPS competitions or you’re a grandmaster, this year’s cohort has something to offer for a variety of backgrounds, skill levels, and domain knowledge. We hope you’ll take some time to look over this year’s exciting set of competitions, and encourage you to participate!
Competitions have a valuable place in research and in solving complex problems. As a participant, you will benefit from being exposed to a vibrant community! Indeed, they’re great for connecting to like-minded researchers, excellent for learning and resume building, and allow you to use your skills to have a real-world impact on important and challenging problems. After the challenges are complete, we hope that you continue collaborating with your former competitors to advance solutions for these important problems.
The program includes the following exciting competitions:
- Special Topics in Machine Learning
- OGB-LSC 2022: A Large-Scale Challenge for ML on Graphs
