Dear colleagues, we are proud to announce the first edition of the
Mediterranean Machine Learning (M2L) summer school, a 6-days event where
participants will take intensive courses on the most recent and fast
developing core areas of machine learning with the possibility to interact
with experts in the field. The participants will have access to a series of
invited talks, followed by practical lab sessions

The target audience will consist primarily of Master and Doctoral students,
academics, and practitioners from all around the world, with a focus on the
Mediterranean area. We strive for diversity, and welcome everyone to apply!


APPLICATION DEADLINE: 16 March 2020 - we might close the application sooner
if we receive more than 600 applications. More info at
https://urldefense.com/v3/__http://www.m2lschool.org/application__;!!LIr3w8kk_Xxm!8tobyf_VKHqAFfs4x2iScSRDl2Uby5RTMqGr3nschY2lrNjZtr_mfJdjAwfw_-V-DzfjWA1K$ 


=== MOTIVATION AND DESCRIPTION ===

Selection of topics:
Computer vision
Neural machine translation
Text generation
Graphnets
Meta/Multitask learning
(Deep) reinforcement learning
Robotics
Non-parametric Bayes
Applied machine learning and deep learning (E.g., healthcare, physics,
weather, ..)
and more!

Boost networking and knowledge transfer:
M2L brings together early-stage researchers, practitioners and
world-leading experts, providing access to high quality education, and
strengthening the local and foreign machine learning ecosystem by fostering
durable connections among researchers, as well as among practitioners and
industry.

Support dialogue and collaboration:
The Mediterranean Machine Learning (M2L) summer school aims to promote an
informed dialogue among companies, academia and institutions, encouraging
them to take an active role in shaping, regulating and supporting the
evolution of the artificial intelligence field, as well as to facilitate
the exchange of ideas and the establishment of partnerships.

Promote diversity and inclusion:
AI is revolutionizing several fields, from computer vision to autonomous
driving and robotics. Its potential to radically change our society calls
for this technology to be mastered and shaped by everyone, with equal
representation of genders, ethnicities, nationalities, religions and
economic backgrounds.


=== LOCATION AND DATES ===
The Mediterranean Machine Learning (M2L) summer school 2020 will take place
in Milan, Italy, from the 31st of August to the 5th of September. The
school will be located in the spaces of Università degli Studi di
Milano-Bicocca.
