Please note the following changes to NIPS in 2008:

A new feature that is on the NIPS schedule this year is four Mini
Symposia to be held in parallel during the afternoon of December 11,
2008 at the Hyatt Vancouver.  The Mini Symposia will provide in depth
explorations of current topics in a format that is less, formal than a
plenary session but more structured than a workshop. Below are the
topics and speakers for this year:

Risi Kondor, Guy Lebanon and Jason Morton
Gatsby Unit, UCL, Georgia Tech, Stanford University
Algebraic and Combinatorial Methods in Machine Learning

Bill Freeman and Bernhard Schoelkopf
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Max Planck Institute for
Biological Cybernetics
Computational Photography

Gal Chechik, Christina Leslie, Quaid Morris, William Noble and Gunnar Raetsch
Google, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, University of Toronto,
University of Washington, Max Planck Society
Machine Learning in Computational Biology

Daniel Polani and Naftali Tishby
University of Hertfordshire, Hebrew University
Principled Theoretical Frameworks for the Perception-Action Cycle

Attendence at the Mini-Symposia will be open to anyone who is
registered for the main NIPS Conference or the NIPS Workshop in
Whistler.
