Conference Program:

The last day for early registration pricing is November 6, 2009.

Tutorials: December 7, 2009 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Main Conference: December 7 - 10, 2009 in Vancouver, British Columbia,  
Workshops: December 11-12, 2009 in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada

The tutorials will offer a choice of six two-hour tutorials by leading  
scientists. The topics span a wide range of subjects including  
Neuroscience, Learning Algorithms and Theory, Bioinformatics, Image  
Processing, and Data Mining.
The NIPS Conference features a single track program, with  
contributions from a large number of intellectual communities.  
Presentation topics include: Algorithms and Architectures;  
Applications; Brain Imaging; Cognitive Science and Artificial  
Intelligence; Control and Reinforcement Learning; Emerging  
Technologies; Learning Theory; Neuroscience; Speech and Signal  
Processing; and Visual Processing.  All papers are rigorously reviewed.

The Poster Sessions will take place Monday through Wednesday evenings,  
December 7 – 9, 2009, during the Conference.  The sessions offer high- 
quality posters and an opportunity for researchers to share their work  
and exchange ideas in a collegial setting.  The majority of  
contributions accepted at NIPS are presented as posters.

The Demonstrations enable researchers to highlight scientific  
advances, systems, and technologies in ways that go beyond  
conventional poster presentations. It provides a unique forum for  
demonstrating advanced technologies — both hardware and software — and  
fostering the direct exchange of knowledge.

Following the regular program of the Neural Information Processing  
Systems 2009 conference in Vancouver, BC, Canada, four mini-symposia  
will be held in parallel during the afternoon of Thursday, December  
10, 2009, in the Hyatt Regency, Vancouver, BC, Canada.
The Post-Conference Workshop Program takes place in Whistler, B.C. at  
the Westin Resort and Spa and the Hilton Whistler Resort and Spa  
Friday, December 11 and Saturday, December 12, 2009. There will be 28  
workshops covering a wide range of topics from Neuroscience to Machine  
Learning.  The workshop program schedule allows time for informal  
discussions, skiing and other winter sports.
