This year, we’d like to capture the creativity of the NIPS community in 2009’s NIPS conference poster. The winner will receive full complimentary registration for the tutorials, conference, workshop, and bus transportation to Whistler. Please design a poster and upload it in PDF, PNG, or JPG format. This is open to any member of NIPS: students, postdocs, and faculty. The NIPS board will review and vote for the best one.

Upload your poster by July 15, 2009. Good luck and thank you for your valuable contributions. If you have any questions, please contact us at
