Style files

These are the style files that were used for 1997. They will probably remain the same for 1998.
Latex 2.09 .sty file | Latex 2e .sty file | Latex .tex file | Postscript
In addition, we now have a style file for MS Word, in RTF (Rich Text Format).
Microsoft Word .rtf file

Please Note: For those authors running the most recent release of Latex (Latex 2e), better results will be obtained by using the 2e style file (nips97e.sty). Authors using the older Latex 2.09 should use the 2.09 style file (nips97.sty) (no e). The .tex file we have provided uses nips97.sty.

Thanks to Leemon Baird for creating the .rtf style file.
