NeurIPS 2020 Workshops FAQ

(Document updated: )

1. Where are the accepted workshops listed?

2020 NeurIPS Workshops

2. I want to edit the organizers, abstract or schedule for my workshop. How do I do this?

  • We have transferred your application from CMT to this website.   Visit your workshop application.  (If you have multiple applications, you will need to select one of them.)
  • You may change your application as often as needed during the meeting including changing or re-ordering the organizers, updating the schedule, and updating the abstract. These changes should automatically reflect in the online schedule, the Workshop PDF download, (and in the mobile application with some delay if and once it's released).  
  • On the first page of your workshop application where you set the Title, there is a button in the lower right that lets you edit the schedule of your workshop. Be sure to watch the Video tutorial for the schedule editor. Because we are offering to let workshops start in a timezone other than the local meeting time, we ask that you set the timezone of your workshop on that same page. 
  • After you edit your workshop abstracts, organizers, or schedule, you may want to verify that it looks okay in the program (may take up to 30 seconds).

3. I'm putting out a call for papers for my workshop: any recommended deadlines?

Yes, by all means. Please aim to send accept/reject notifications by Oct 30th

We also ask you to please add your final list of workshop speakers in the workshop schedule by Oct 31

4. Complimentary Tickets

Each workshop is given 15 complimentary tickets.  Some points to consider when allocating complimentary passes:

  • Only the workshop's primary contact can allocate complimentary tickets.
  • You have until one week after the meeting to allocate complimentary tickets.
  • Complimentary tickets are not subject to a sell out, even if the venue runs out of space. (Only relevant for physical conference.)
  • If you give a complimentary ticket to someone that has already registered, they will receive a refund to their credit card for their existing registration fees.
  • A complimentary ticket covers the full conference.

The primary contact should visit the workshop application's first page to assign complimentary passes.  Workshop Applications.

5. Publicizing your workshop 

When publicizing your workshop or competition, you may mention the hashtag #NeurIPS2020
