Information

KMi is organising a series of biweekly seminars, given by internal and external speakers. Internal seminars are raising awareness about the research conducted in KMi and are fostering networking. External seminars are given by researchers from other institutions who are visiting KMi. The KMi seminars cover a wide range of topics, including Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Semantic Technologies, Citizen Science, and more.

KMi invites external speakers to present their work to the lab. We also welcome approaches from researchers who are interested to present their work. Please contact either the KMi staff member who is working in your field, or the seminars coordinators: Angelo Salatino, Alexander Mikroyannidis, Rachel Coignac-Smith, and Nancy Pontika.

The seminars take place at the KMi Podium (Berrill Building, 4th Floor North) unless otherwise stated. They are also broadcasted for online participants.

To add/remove yourself from KMi Seminar announcements, please subscribe/unsubscribe to this mailing list.
