LxMLS 2020 - Lisbon Machine Learning School

21 de Julho de 2020 a 29 de Julho de 2020

LxMLS 2020 will take place July 21th to July 29th at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), a leading Engineering and Science school in Portugal. It is organized jointly by IST, the Instituto de Telecomunicações, the Instituto de Engenharia de Sistemas e Computadores, Investigação e Desenvolvimento em Lisboa (INESC-ID), Unbabel, Priberam Labs and Feedzai.

Our target audience is:

- Researchers and graduate students in the fields of NLP and Computational Linguistics;
- Computer scientists who have interests in statistics and machine learning;
- Industry practitioners who desire a more in depth understanding of these subjects.

Features of LxMLS:

- No deep previous knowledge of ML or NLP is required, but the attendants are assumed to have some basic background on mathematics and programming
- Lecturers are leading researchers in machine learning and natural language processing (see speakers)
- Days are divided into morning lectures and afternoon lab sessions and practical talks (see schedule)
- The Labs guide will be provided one month in advance. Last year’s guide can be found here
- A day zero is scheduled to review basic concepts and introduce the necessary tools for implementation exercises
- Both basic (e.g linear classifiers) and advanced topics (e.g. deep learning, reinforcement learning) will be covered
- Students will be able to (optionally) show their current work in poster sessions during coffee breaks
- In the demo day students will be able to interact with technical companies and research institutions working in machine learning
- Welcome reception, Gala dinner, daily lunch as well as morning and afternoon coffee breaks are included in the application fee
