Rising Stars in AI Symposium 2023

Rising Stars in AI Symposium 2023

Following on the success of the first Annual 'Rising Stars in AI' Symposium 2022, the AI initiative at KAUST (the university with the highest impact per faculty, located on the Red Sea) is hosting its second iteration of the Symposium between 19th and 21st Feb, 2023. This is event geared towards young researchers (including PhD students, PostDocs, and early career faculty) who have recently published significant works at leading AI venues. It is a great opportunity for attendees to discuss and exchange exciting AI research ideas. The Symposium organizing committee will select a number of speakers based on their research profile. Selected speakers will have the opportunity to give presentations about their work recently accepted at major AI conferences such as NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, CVPR, ECCV, ICCV, EMNLP, ACL, among others.

Speakers are encouraged to start with an introduction aimed at non-AI experts and follow up with in-depth technical details. There will also be plenty of time for discussions, snorkeling trips,  and social activities.

The symposium will be held at KAUST on February 19-21 with (limited) in-person attendance, and those selected for the symposium as speakers will have their flights and hotel expenses covered.

To apply for the event, please fill out the below application form. We will send confirmation emails for in-person attendance.

The deadline for submission is now closed.
