NeurIPS Statement on Ethics, Fairness, Inclusivity, and Code of Conduct

The NeurIPS Foundation believes in the principles of ethics, fairness, and inclusivity, and is dedicated to providing a safe space where research can be shared, reviewed, and debated by the AI / ML community.

Having observed recent discussions taking place across social media, we feel the need to reiterate that, as a community, we must be mindful of the impact that statements and actions have on our peers, and future generations of AI / ML students and researchers.

It is incumbent upon NeurIPS and the AI / ML community as a whole to foster a collaborative, welcoming environment for all. Therefore, statements and actions contrary to the NeurIPS mission and its Code of Conduct cannot and will not be tolerated. For any conference attendee failing to abide by our Code of Conduct, NeurIPS reserves its right to rescind that person’s ability to participate in any future NeurIPS-organized events.

NeurIPS’ Code of Conduct clearly outlines prohibited behaviors and subsequent corrective actions in detail. As an organization dedicated to fostering open and productive dialog among the greater AI / ML community, accusations of bullying, harassment, and discrimination are given the utmost attention and care, and such behaviors will not be tolerated.

About NeurIPS

The purpose of the Neural Information Processing Systems annual meeting is to foster the exchange of research on neural information processing systems in their biological, technological, mathematical, and theoretical aspects. The core focus is peer-reviewed novel research which is presented and discussed in the general session, along with invited talks by leaders in their field. On Sunday is an Expo, where our top industry sponsors give talks, panels, demos, and workshops on topics that are of academic interest. On Monday are tutorials, which cover a broad background on current lines of inquiry, affinity group meetings, and the opening talk & reception. The general sessions are held Tuesday - Thursday, and include talks, posters, and demonstrations. Friday - Saturday are the workshops, which are smaller meetings focused on current topics, and provide an informal, cutting edge venue for discussion.
