AI4EU AI4EU Month-9 WP7 Workshop AI
Milton Keynes, UK: September 19-20, 2019

One of the main milestones of our project is the organization of a joint workshop at Month 4 between WP5, WP6, WP7 and WP9. This workshop will take place on May 2 and 3, 2019, at Sorbonne University, Paris. Its main goals are: (1) to align the pilots in WP6 and research activities in WP7; (2) to inject the AI4EU ELSEC perspective (WP5) in those activities; and (3) to provide initial input to the AI4EU Strategic Research and Innovation Roadmap (WP9).


To attend the workshop, please register by filling the registration form at: [CLOSED] by April 12, 2019. We may not be able to fit participants who have not registered by this date. Notice that after this date all communications about this workshop will be sent to the registered people only, not to the whole AI4EU list.

There is no registration fee, but your registration is binding. AI4EU will provide coffee breaks and lunches for free; you will need to pay for the social dinner yourself.

Most events will take place in the auditorium "Durand", but other rooms will be used for the WP7 meeting and for the parallel sessions: Room 65-66 304 (tower 65, 3rd floor), Room 25-26 105 (LIP6 laboratory, between towers 25 and 26, 1st floor), and Room H20 (ISIR pyramid, entrance between towers 55 and 56).
