More information on NeurIPS (Neural Information Processing Systems):
The purpose of the Neural Information Processing Systems annual meeting is to foster the exchange of research on neural information processing systems in their biological, technological, mathematical, and theoretical aspects. The core focus is peer-reviewed novel research which is presented and discussed in the general session, along with invited talks by leaders in their field.
The conference had > 5,000 registered participants in 2016, > 7,000 in 2017, and 8,000 in 2018, making it the largest conference in Artificial Intelligence.
