How long has the conference been running?

Since the 1980s and the PC brigade have only just noticed? If they're that bothered they just shouldn't go.

The NIPS acronym is distasteful, unprofessional, or inappropriate,

It is none of the above but a suitable abbreviation for the extremely wordy title Neural Imaging Processing Systems. Still maybe it could renamed to something like Boring Bastards Bore Each Other and Everyone Else.
