Welcome to the machine learning thematic trimester

From September to December 2015, the International Centre for Mathematics and Computer Science (CIMI) organizes a thematic trimester on Machine Learning.

The goal of this trimester is to propose a series of scientific and pedagogic events reflecting common interests of the two laboratories that founded CIMI:

The focus will be set in particular on three axes:

  • optimization problems in machine learning,
  • learning with structured data and natural language,
  • sequential learning.


The trimester will start with a summer school and will continue with three thematic workshops.

  • Summer school - 14th to 18th September 2015
  • workshop 1 - 6th to 7th October 2015
  • workshop 2 - 9th to 10th November 2015
  • workshop 3 + Special course : deep learning, background and application to natural language processing - 9th to 11th December 2015

In addition, two "Big Data" days will take place on November 16th and 17th: a joint workshop of the CNRS GDR MaDICS and MascotNUM, and an "industrial day" organized with Labex AMIES.

Coupled with these events, international renowned researchers will be invited to collaborate with the IMT and IRIT teams.
