[D] Whats the deal of NeurIPS 2019 reserved ticket?
I am an astrophysics student in Toronto who are doing my PhD project something about deep learning on astrophysical data. My supervisor advised me to apply for NeurIPS this year to chat and learn with other people in different field. I know NeurIPS changed the ticket system to a lottery. But I still have difficulty to figure it out the whole process.
So I did join the lottery and received an email with link to get a “reserved ticket” during the past weekend. I don’t know what does it mean? Like I actually get the ticket and I just have to complete the process and paid?
Moreover, I am especially interested in the workshop ” Machine Learning and the Physical Sciences”. But it does not seems like I can submit my work/poster to them, or even apply to the workshop. I can only apply to workshops after I get my ticket or I already missed the deadline? Thanks
