We invite everyone interested in Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing to attend the 10th Lisbon Machine Learning School - LxMLS 2020.
Important Dates ---------------
* Application Deadline: March 15, 2020
* Decision: April 15, 2020
* Early Registration: April 20 - June 30, 2020
* Summer School: July 21 - 29, 2020
Topics and Intended Audience --------------- The school will cover a range of Machine Learning (ML) topics, from theory to practice, that are important in solving Natural Language Processing (NLP) problems that arise in the analysis and use of Web data.
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; * 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 is available on the website. * 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 * Lecturers are leading researchers in machine learning and natural language processing
