Aim of the conference

We aim to bring European academics, young researchers, students and industrial practitioners together in Switzerland to discuss the application of Artificial Intelligence to various practical fields. In a broader context, we want to promote «Mathematics for Industry» in Switzerland, similar to what ECMI is doing on an European-wide level. The 1st COST Conference on this topic was held on September 15, 2016, and the 2nd COST Conference was held on September 7, 2017, see also this report.

We have two thematic workshops, focusing on Industrial and Financial Applications.

The conference is supported by the COST Network MI-NET and by the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation SERI.

All lectures are open to the public. Registration is now open.
