2021 TRIPODS Winter School & Workshop on Graph Learning and Deep Learning

This event aims to bring together experts in machine learning, statistical inference and learning on graphs, and optimization to share basic principles, recent research results, and practical ideas, on the foundations of graph and deep learning.

A series of tutorials and hands-on sessions will be virtually presented over the first week, followed by a workshop covering recent results on the area,  with opportunities for discussion with peers and leaders in the field.

TRIPODS Winter School will be held January 6-8th, 2021, with workshops held January 13-15. Please register here
