MSR & Mila Workshop 2019

About

You’re invited to join us for the 3rd annual MSR & Mila research workshop in Montreal on October 16, 2019. The workshop will feature 14 distinguished presentations by Mila professors, students and MSR researchers. The workshop will also include a Mila poster session during lunch.

The workshop is an opportunity for Mila professors, students and MSR researchers to share and present what they’re currently working on with the goal of facilitating and building on existing research collaborations between Mila & MSR.
