NeurIPS 2022 Workshop on Causality for Real-world Impact
December 2
Causality has a long history, providing it with many principled approaches to identify a causal effect (or even distill cause from effect). However, these approaches are often restricted to very specific situations, requiring very specific assumptions. This contrasts heavily with recent advances in machine learning. Real-world problems aren’t granted the luxury of making strict assumptions, yet still require causal thinking to solve. Armed with the rigor of causality, and the can-do-attitude of machine learning, we believe the time is ripe to start working towards solving real-world problems.

NeurIPS 2022 Workshop on New Frontiers in Graph Learning
December 2
The primary goal of this workshop is to expand the impact of graph learning beyond the current boundaries. We believe that graph, or relation data, is a universal language that can be used to describe the complex world. Ultimately, we hope graph learning will become a generic tool for learning and understanding any type of (structured) data.
NeurIPS 2022 Workshop on Offline RL as a Launchpad
December 2
While offline RL focuses on learning solely from fixed datasets, one of the main learning points from the previous edition of offline RL workshop was that large-scale RL applications typically want to use offline RL as part of a bigger system as opposed to being the end-goal in itself. Thus, we propose to shift the focus from algorithm design and offline RL applications to how offline RL can be a launchpad , i.e., a tool or a starting point, for solving challenges in sequential decision-making such as exploration, generalization, transfer, safety, and adaptation.
NeurIPS 2022 Workshop on Interpolation and Beyond
December 2
This workshop brings together researchers and users of interpolation regularizers to foster research and discussion to advance and understand interpolation regularizers.

NeurIPS 2022 Workshop on a Causal View on Dynamical Systems
December 3
In this workshop, we bring together researchers in dynamical systems, time-series methods, causality, infinite-depth neural networks, and machine learning. We believe a side-by-side discussion of dynamical systems and causal inference (discovery and estimation) will allow one to develop novel approaches, transfer expertise across communities, and enable us to overcome current limitations of each individual perspective. Connections to other scientific disciplines as well as practitioners’ view will be highlighted to showcase successful applications of causal inference in dynamical settings.

NeurIPS 2022 Workshop on Transfer Learning for NLP
December 3
Transfer learning has become ubiquitous in natural language processing due in part to the ease of access to large pre-trained language models (PLM). Current transfer learning methods, combined with PLMs, have seen outstanding successes in transferring knowledge to new tasks, domains, and even languages. However, existing methods still suffer from some common weaknesses that restrict their potential applications.

One particular hope for this workshop is to help to answer the question: Can we characterize the transfer behaviors between source and target tasks/domains/languages in terms of their fundamental properties?

NeurIPS 2022 Workshop on Self-Supervised Learning - Theory and Practice
December 3
In the 3rd iteration of this workshop, we continue to bridge this gap between theory and practice. We bring together SSL-interested researchers from various domains to discuss the theoretical foundations of empirically well-performing SSL approaches and how the theoretical insights can further improve SSL’s empirical performance.
NeurIPS 2022 Workshop on Trojan Detection Challenge
December 8
In this competition, we challenge you to detect and analyze Trojan attacks on deep neural networks that are designed to be difficult to detect. Neural Trojans are a growing concern for the security of ML systems, but little is known about the fundamental offense-defense balance of Trojan detection. Early work suggests that standard Trojan attacks may be easy to detect [1], but recently it has been shown that in simple cases one can design practically undetectable Trojans.
