9 professors from the Computer Science department at the University of British Columbia (and their co-authors) have had 13 papers in total accepted for the 2022 conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS).
NeurIPS is the premiere conference that celebrates the work being done in artificial intelligence and machine learning, and will take place November 28th through December 9th 2022.
This year there were 10,411 full paper submissions to NeurIPS, of which the program committee accepted 25.6% for presentation at the conference.
13 of them are from UBC Computer Science, and also one of the competitions is co-organized by a UBC CS professor. Notably, several of the UBC papers are amongst the top two per cent to be accepted for oral presentations at the conference, designated below with an asterisk.
The UBC computer science professors for each paper below have a link to their personal website, and the names highlighted in orange are UBC students.
