The keynote lectures are aimed to provide the state of the art knowledge about a specific topic related to AI. Lectures will also aim to broaden the research views in specific areas and will provide information about new methods that can be used in investigating specific research problems.
KEYNOTE
LECTURES
A set of short oral presentations from selected PhD students/Postdocs will be an integral part of the program. Each PhD/young researcher will receive 15 minutes to present their PhD project/current research and 5 minutes for questions/discussion. This will provide an opportunity for young researchers to present their research. View the list of invited speakers and project titles here.
