Lambda is a diamond sponsor this year at NeurIPS. (The conference recently changed its name from NIPS to NeurIPS.) We have three extra registrations for the whole conference track (Tutorials, Conference Sessions, and Workshops) and would like to make them available to members of the community.
We'll only be keeping this form open for 48 hours so please tell your friends about it before it closes!
If you'd like to go and have the means to purchase your own flight and hotel but were unable to purchase a ticket due to them selling out this is the contest for you. If you don't have the financial means, you can apply as well and describe your situation, we may be able to help those in need with flights and lodging. Here is how it will work:
- Fill out this form to apply. Your application will be judged based on your ability to make a sound argument for why you want to attend NeurIPS. Also be sure to drop your LinkedIn or GitHub URL if you're interested in working at Lambda!
- We will select the top three applicants and notify them via email or phone. We will wait until they have confirmed with a flight purchase or hotel room that they will be attending the conference.
- If any applicant who is selected is unable to attend, we will move on to the next candidate in the pool until all three tickets are spoken for.
We're really happy to provide some additional tickets to those in the community who were unable to register this year due to NeurIPS selling out in less than 12 minutes. We'll only keep this form open for 48 hours, so tell your friends too.
Again, here's the form: Application Form for the Lambda NeurIPS 2018 Ticket Contest.
Can't wait to see you there! Questions, comments, etc. can be directed to @LambdaAPI on Twitter.
