      Deadline for Paper Submissions: June 9, 2006

      Submissions are solicited for the twentieth annual meeting of an
      interdisciplinary conference (December 5-7) which brings together
      researchers interested in all aspects of neural and statistical processing
      and computation. The conference will include invited talks as well as oral
      and poster presentations of refereed papers. It is single track and highly
      selective. Preceding the main conference will be one day of tutorials
      (December 4), and following it will be two days of workshops at
      Whistler/Blackcomb ski resort (December 8-9).

      Invited Speakers: To be announced.

      Tutorial Speakers: To be announced.

      Submissions: Papers are solicited in all areas of neural information
      processing, including (but not limited to) the following:
      * Algorithms and Architectures: statistical learning algorithms, neural
      networks, kernel methods, graphical models, Gaussian processes,
      dimensionality reduction and manifold learning, model selection,
      combinatorial optimization.
      * Applications: innovative applications or fielded systems that use machine
      learning, including systems for time series prediction, bioinformatics,
      text/web analysis, multimedia processing, and robotics.
      * Brain Imaging: neuroimaging, cognitive neuroscience, EEG
      (electroencephalogram), ERP (event related potentials), MEG
      (magnetoencephalogram), fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging), brain
      mapping, brain segmentation, brain computer interfaces.
      * Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence: theoretical, computational,
      or experimental studies of perception, psychophysics, human or animal
      learning, memory, reasoning, problem solving, natural language processing,
      and neuropsychology.
      * Control and Reinforcement Learning: decision and control, exploration,
      planning, navigation, Markov decision processes, game-playing, multi-agent
      coordination, computational models of classical and operant conditioning.
      * Hardware Technologies: analog and digital VLSI, neuromorphic engineering,
      computational sensors and actuators, microrobotics, bioMEMS, neural
      prostheses, photonics, molecular and quantum computing.
      * Learning Theory: generalization, regularization and model selection,
      Bayesian learning, spaces of functions and kernels, statistical physics of
      learning, online learning and competitive analysis, hardness of learning and
      approximations, large deviations and asymptotic analysis, information
      * Neuroscience: theoretical and experimental studies of processing and
      transmission of information in biological neurons and networks, including
      spike train generation, synaptic modulation, plasticity and adaptation.
      * Speech and Signal Processing: recognition, coding, synthesis, denoising,
      segmentation, source separation, auditory perception, psychoacoustics,
      dynamical systems, recurrent networks, Language Models, Dynamic and Temporal
      * Visual Processing: biological and machine vision, image processing and
      coding, segmentation, object detection and recognition, motion detection and
      tracking, visual psychophysics, visual scene analysis and interpretation.

      Review Criteria: New as of 2006, NIPS submissions will be reviewed
      double-blind: the reviewers will not know the identities of the authors.
      Submissions will be refereed on the basis of technical quality, novelty,
      potential impact on the field, and clarity. There will be an opportunity
      after the meeting to revise accepted manuscripts. We particularly encourage
      submissions by authors new to NIPS, as well as application papers that
      combine concrete results on novel or previously unachievable applications
      with analysis of the underlying difficulty from a machine learning

      Paper Format: The paper format is fully described at
      http://research.microsoft.com/conferences/nips06/. Please use the latest
      style file for your submission.

      Submission Instructions: NIPS accepts only electronic submissions at
      http://papers.nips.cc These submissions must be in postscript or PDF
      format. The Conference web site will accept electronic submissions from May
      26, 2006 until midnight, June 9, 2006, Pacific daylight time.

      Demonstrations: There is a separate demonstration track at NIPS. Authors
      wishing to submit to the demonstration track should consult the conference
      web site.
