CIMI Machine learning thematic trimester (Toulouse)


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 – 9th to 11th December 2015


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