Neural Information Processing Systems
Programs and Schedules
This is the twelfth meeting of an interdisciplinary conference which
brings together cognitive scientists, computer scientists, engineers,
neuroscientists, physicists, and mathematicians interested in all
aspects of neural processing and computation. The conference will
include invited talks and oral and poster presentations of refereed
papers. The conference is single track and is highly selective.
Preceding the main session, there will be one day of tutorial
presentations (Nov. 30), and following it there will be two days of
focused workshops on topical issues at a nearby ski area (Dec. 4-5).
