The 2018 Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) is in full swing in Montréal. According to a booklet distributed to attendees, both NeurIPS 2019 and 2020 will take place in Vancouver, making Canada the host country three years in a row. NIPS/NeurIPS has already been held in Montreal and Vancouver a combined 13 times since the world’s leading AI conference left its Denver base in 2001.
In April the NIPS organizing committee announced that it was considering a name change and began collecting opinions and suggestions from the AI research community. Yesterday, the final results of the poll were disclosed along with the announcement that there would be no name change.
Peer review is an essential process that subjects new research to the scrutiny of other experts in the same field. Today’s top Machine Learning (ML) conferences are heavily reliant on peer review as it allows them to gauge submitted academic papers’ quality and suitability.
From May 14 to 18, the 30th International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2017) was held in Anchorage, AK, USA. Continuing the long tradition, the conference is organized by the International Neural Network Society (INNS), in cooperation with the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (IEEE-CIS).
