NeurIPS Meetup Japan 2021

December 6–⁠14, 2021 | Online

An online meetup for students, researchers, and engineers in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and related disciplines to share ideas and learn from each other.



Welcome to NeurIPS meetup Japan 2021! NeurIPS is a flagship conference in machine learning and more general artificial intelligence. This virtual NeurIPS meetup aims to bring together students, researchers, and engineers who are related to or interested in these topics for an opportunity to connect, exchange ideas, and learn from each other. Underrepresented minorities and undergraduates interested in machine learning are encouraged to attend. This meetup is going to be held in Japan Standard Time during the NeurIPS conference. The official languages for this meetup are English and Japanese.

For this year’s meetup, we will

  • stream NeurIPS keynote talks, as well as talks by our invited speakers and authors from institutions in Japan;
  • provide a social venue for researchers and practitioners to meet fellow participants and build local communities;
  • launch a poster session for participants to explain and promote their work to a wider audience, and engage in technical and professional conversations in a positive and supportive environment;
  • host a mentoring session for participants to discuss current research trends and career choices with our invited mentors from industry and academia;
  • run a panel discussion to discuss the applications and futures of machine learning;
  • organize a women in machine learning event for women researchers and engineers to interact with each other, find support, and build more technical confidence.

Please join us!

The Neural Information Processing Systems Foundation is a non-profit corporation whose purpose is to foster the exchange of research advances in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, principally by hosting an annual interdisciplinary academic conference with the highest ethical standards for a diverse and inclusive community.

The conference was founded in 1987 and is now a multi-track interdisciplinary annual meeting that includes invited talks, demonstrations, symposia, and oral and poster presentations of refereed papers. Along with the conference is a professional exposition focusing on machine learning in practice, a series of tutorials, and topical workshops that provide a less formal setting for the exchange of ideas.
