ESSIR 2022: 13th European Summer School in Information Retrieval
This year’s edition of ESSIR, a 5-day teaching event on Information Retrieval (IR) and related research topics, will take place between 18-23 July 2022. The event is organized by NOVA LINCS (FCT UNL), INESC ID and Universidad Autónoma de Madrid with the support of the CMU Portugal Program and BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT.
The event will also incorporate the new edition of the Symposium on Future Directions in Information Access (FDIA), which will provide a forum for early researchers to present their research in a friendly environment, while among senior researchers.
The summer school is addressed to students, Master’s students, Ph.D. Researchers, Industry and Academia practitioners. No deep previous knowledge of IR or ML is required, but the attendants are assumed to have some basic computer science and mathematics background.
The Summer School will be held at the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences (FCSH) of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa.
The early registration deadline is June the 15th 2022, and the application form is available online.
EPIA’22: EPIA Conference on Artificial Intelligence
