NeurIPS 2020 Style Files


You must use the following files for your submission:

Right-click to download.

All submissions must be in PDF format. Submissions are limited to eight content pages, including all figures and tables, in the NeurIPS “submission” style; additional pages containing only broader impact statement and references are allowed. You must use the NeurIPS 2020 LaTeX style file. The maximum file size for submissions is 50MB. Submissions that violate the NeurIPS style (e.g., by decreasing margins or font sizes) or page limits may be rejected without further review. Please make sure that your paper prints well. Please consult section 6 in neurips_2020.tex for information regarding fonts.

Note that display math in bare TeX commands will not create correct line numbers for submission. Please use LaTeX (or AMSTeX) commands for unnumbered display math. (You really shouldn't be using \$\$ anyway; see here and here for more information.) 

Authors may submit, in a separate file, up to 100MB of supplementary material, such as appendices, proofs, derivations, data, or source code; all supplementary material must be in PDF or ZIP format. 

The reviewing process will be double blind at the level of reviewers and area chairs (i.e., reviewers and area chairs cannot see author identities) but not at the level of senior area chairs and program chairs. As an author, you are responsible for anonymizing your submission. In particular, you should not include author names, author affiliations, or acknowledgements in your submission and you should avoid providing any other identifying information (even in the supplementary material). If you need to cite one of your own papers, you should do so with adequate anonymization to preserve double-blind reviewing (e.g., write “In the previous work of Author et al. [1]…” rather than “In our previous work [1]...”). If you need to cite one of your own papers that is in submission to NeurIPS or elsewhere please do so with adequate anonymization and make sure the cited submission is available for reviewers to read (e.g., if the cited submission is available as a non-anonymous preprint, then write “Author et al. [1] concurrently show…”; if the cited submission is not available as a non-anonymous preprint, then include a copy of the cited submission in the supplementary material and write “Anonymous et al. [1] concurrently show...”).

Non-anonymous preprints

Non-anonymous preprints (on arXiv, social media, websites, etc.) are permitted, though preprints in the NeurIPS style must use the “preprint” option, rather than the “final” option:


Camera-ready papers

Camera-ready papers must use the “final” option:

\usepackage[final]{neurips_2020} % produce camera-ready copy

Funding disclosure and acknowledgements are only visible in the camera-ready version.

Author responses

You must use the following files for your author response:

All author responses must be in PDF format. Author responses are limited to one page, including all figures, tables, and references. Author responses must not contain external links.
