GDR Multielectrode - NeuralNet Conference and Minischool 05 - 08 January

This is the first announcement that the next conference of the GDR Multielectrode - becoming soon (hopefully) GDR NeuralNet.

We chose to delay a bit this edition in order to organize the conference in the Vercors mountain (http://www.escandille.com/).

The conference will start on Jan 6 late afternoon and end on Jan 8 afternoon. Not sure there will be snow at this period, but we hope the calm of Vercors will foster creative thinking and interactions !

Because lodging will be provided on site, a (reasonable) registration fee will be asked to cover the corresponding cost and secure the organization.

The minischool preceding the conference will take place in downtown Grenoble on January 5-6 (lodging not provided).

The program and registration organization is under preparation, but please save already these dates to make this new event as rich as possible !

Research Seminar: NLP and machine learning 29 January

Compositional structures abound in NLP, ranging from bilexical relations, entities in context, sequences and trees.  The focus of this talk is in latent-variable compositional models for structured objects that: (1) induce a latent n-dimensional representation for each element of the structure; and (2) learn operators for composing such elements into structures.

Junior Scientist and Industry Annual Meeting (JSIam) 2016 04 March

The Junior Scientist and Industry annual meeting (JSIam) is a one-day event dedicated to junior scientists (PhD students and post doc) and industry members. It is an excellent opportunity for both to get to know each other. It is a great opportunity for industry members to keep up to date with new research results in the academic environment, but also to find new skills and to identify potential future employees for their businesses. Simultaneously, junior scientists can form a better idea about their opportunities to integrate the industrial world and to discover other possible career paths.
