RL Social @ NeurIPS 2019

Tue Dec 10th 07:00 -- 10:00 PM @ West 220 - 222

Interested in joining the continually growing community of reinforcement learning? Join us at the RL Social (Dec 10, 7-10 p.m at West Level 2, Room 220-222), an informal environment for NeurIPS attending agents to interact, accumulate more reward, and improve the policy in their decision making for study, research, work, and life. From 7 to 8 pm, mingle with RL experts. Confirmed (tentatively) experts are: Pieter Abbeel, Marc Bellemare, Craig Boutilier, Michael Bowling, Amir-massoud Farahmand, Chelsea Finn, Lihong Li, Michael Littman, David Silver, Satinder Singh, Rich Sutton, Csaba Szepasvari, Mengdi Wang, and Martha White. There would definitely be more RL experts coming. Then from 8 to 10 pm, dig into specific discussion topics such as model-based RL, exploration, theory, games/StarCraft, RL for real life, RL code debugging, etc., in parallel meetup groups. Supplies will be provided to make topic signs, but custom signs are always welcome. An on-site bar and a select amount of drink tickets are sponsored by Amii ( and RLAI ( We expect high attendance, so please feel free to bring food or drinks. Come build connections and collaborations with people from all over the world!
