NeurIPS MeetUp

This is a satellite event of the Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) conference. Since NeurIPS is happening online due to covid-related restrictions, we are organising this offline, smaller-scale local meetup in Cambridge.

Our goal is to bring students, researchers, and engineers from the greater Cambridge area (UK) together for an opportunity to meet and discuss machine learning research presented at NeurIPS. We also want to provide an opportunity for researchers —some of whom have been doing research only during the duration of the pandemic— to promote their work and meet people from their local community. The day will feature poster sessions (**only for accepted NeurIPS papers or NeurIPS workshop papers**), a networking event and a stream of NeurIPS presentations.

All participants need to abide by NeurIPS' Code of Conduct.
