NIPS 2004 Call for Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS --- NIPS 2004
Neural Information Processing Systems --- Natural and Synthetic
Monday, December 13 --- Saturday, December 18, 2004
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Deadline for Paper Submissions: June 4, 2004
Submissions are solicited for the eighteenth annual meeting of an
interdisciplinary NIPS Conference (December 14-16) which brings together
researchers interested in all aspects of neural and statistical
computation. The Conference will include invited talks as well as Oral
Poster Presentations of refereed papers and Demonstrations. It is single
and highly selective. Preceding the main Conference will be one day of
Tutorials (December 13), and following it will be two days of Workshops
Whistler/Blackcomb ski resort (December 17-18).
