NICE’2024 took place at the Scripps Seaside Forum in La Jolla, California, United States of America on April 23-25, 2024. The tutorial day on April 26 took place at the UC San Diego Supercomputer center.

  • Tuesday, 23 April 2024 – Thursday, 25 April 2024 for the main workshop
  • Friday, 26 April 2024 for the parallel hands-on tutorials


The agenda of NICE 2024 is available here (also available as agenda with all abstracts unfolded. In the title item of the agenda for the first day there are links to display the agenda with different time zones).


Online registration was open until 9 April 2024. Please see the registration page for options and the link to the online registration form.

Venue in La Jolla

The venue is Scripps Seaside Forum right on the beach for three days of inspiring keynotes and lectures, interactive posters, and live demonstrations, with an extra day of illuminating tutorials at the nearby UC San Diego Institute for Neural Computation.
