ELLIS Doctoral Symposium 2024

What is ELLIS?

The European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems (ELLIS) is a pan-European AI network of excellence which focuses on fundamental science, technical innovation and societal impact. Founded in 2018, ELLIS builds upon machine learning as the driver for modern AI and aims to secure Europe’s sovereignty in this competitive field by creating a multi-centric AI research laboratory. ELLIS has established 43 units in 17 different countries in Europe. It has also launched the ELLIS PhD Program, one of Europe’s most competitive PhD programs which aims to foster and educate the best talent in machine learning and related research areas by pairing outstanding students with leading academic and industrial researchers across Europe. The ELLIS PhD Program has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon research and innovation programme under ELIAS Grant Agreement No. 101120237 (2023-2027) and from the Horizon Europe research and innovation programme under ELISE Grant Agreement No. 951847 (2020 – 2024) and ELSA Grant Agreement No. 101070617 (2022 - 2025).

What is EDS2024?

The ELLIS Doctoral Symposium is an annual conference for ELLIS PhD students and other PhD students to meet in person and share knowledge about machine learning. The ELLIS Doctoral Symposium 2024 (EDS2024) is the fourth edition, which is co-organised by the University of Amsterdam, ELSA and the Institut Polytechnique de Paris, and will be held in Paris, France. It is expected to host 150 attendees during one week from Monday, August 26 - to Friday, August 30.

The focus of this year’s symposium is AI & Sustainability.

Participants are expected to prepare a poster or a tooling session with a strong machine learning component. The topic of the poster or tooling session is completely open, as the ELLIS Programs bring together researchers from multiple disciplines within the machine learning community (Computer Vision, NLP, Theoretical ML, Reinforcement Learning, Human-Centric ML…). If upon registering you are unsure about the material you wish to present, do feel free to submit a tentative title. EDS2024 follows in the footsteps of the previous EDS iterations held in Helsinki (EDS2023), Alicante (EDS2022) and Tübingen (EDS2021). Save the date and join us for keynotes, poster & tooling sessions and social events in the beautiful City of Light!
