I finally have a courage to restart my blog post after a long long time. This time, I want to advertise a new experiment for Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS 2016) known as "exhibition of rejects" which aims to highlight some of the NIPS2016 rejected papers in a spirit similar to the Salon de Refuesés. Bob Williamson is very kind to host the exhibition. The list of papers is available at http://users.cecs.anu.edu.au/~williams/sdr16.html.
Also, I have to say that it is my pleasure to serve as one of the workflow managers for NIPS2016. I'll try to write my experience on this in another post.
