UBC Computer Science has 11 papers accepted at NeurIPS 2023 conference

12 professors from the Computer Science Department at the University of British Columbia (and their co-authors) have had 11 papers in total accepted for the 2023 NeurIPS conference 

This year marks the 37th annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS): a workshop and conference hosted by the Neural Information Processing Systems Foundation that celebrates the work being done in artificial intelligence and machine learning and promotes the exchange of research advances. 

The conference will take place from December 10 – 16 and will be a Hybrid Conference with a physical component at the Convention Center in New Orleans.

You can see a list of our members’ papers below. The UBC computer science professors for each paper below are in red and have a link to their personal website.
