By Sanmi Koyejo and Shakir Mohamed, General Chairs
The planning for NeurIPS2022 has already begun, and we are excited to have joined this year as co-General Chairs for the conference, and to make our contributions to this important meeting in our field’s annual calendar.
NeurIPS is a large conference and its organization continues to be mostly driven by volunteers from our community committed to its success. As we start this process, we hope to have as wide a set of people from which to select as chairs for the conference. Please consider nominating yourself, or someone you know, as an organiser for one of the roles in the conference, or in a generalist role that you think might serve the conference better. Serving as an organiser is a great way to build experience of crafting large scientific meetings and balancing the many tradeoffs involved, helps build new networks, and a great way to give back to the community in a way that is different from reviewing and workshops.
Our planning is still in the early phases, and we hope to update soon on the general form that this year’s conference will take.
