============================================================== Call for Participation LxMLS 2021 - 11th Lisbon Machine Learning School ==============================================================

We invite everyone interested in Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing to attend the 11th Lisbon Machine Learning School - LxMLS 2021. This year the school will be *fully virtual* and *free for students*.

Important Dates --------------- * Application Deadline: May 15, 2021 * Decision: June 1, 2021 * Early Registration: June 15 - July 1, 2021 * Summer School: July 7 - 15, 2021

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 * Lecturers are leading researchers in machine learning and natural language processing

Online Format: Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the 11th Lisbon Machine Learning School will be held online (via zoom and slack). Similar to last year, we are excited for the opportunity to create a virtual school, where you will be able to attend all the lectures, and participate in the Q&As and labs remotely. We will also provide the tools for students to engage with each other remotely. The lectures will also be streamed to YouTube, and will become freely available later in our YouTube channel. The Q&A, labs and social activities will remain restricted to the accepted students only.
