Computational Intelligence and Learning

TRAIL doctoral seminars

The TRAIL doctoral seminars are afternoon sessions primarily targeting PhD students doing research in AI. They are organized in the context of TRAIL and co-sponsored by the FNRS CIL doctoral school and the SPW-EER ARIAC project. These events take place every month, in a hybrid mode (both on-site and online).

Once confirmed, the seminars will appear below and will be announced on the mailing list of the CIL doctoral school. You can register to this mailing list here.

For any further information regarding the TRAIL doctoral seminars, please contact Vân Anh Huynh-Thu.
