What: Diversity@LuxLogAI, an event to promote women in computer science and artificial intelligence.
When: 20th September 2018, 14:00 – 16:00
Where: University of Luxembourg, Campus Belval, Maison des Sciences Humaines, Blackbox (ground floor)
What does the event offer?
The event is organized as part of Luxembourg Logic for AI Summit (LuxLogAI 2018). The main theme of Diversity@LuxLogAI is to promote gender equality and sensitivity in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence.
The event will gather researchers and practitioners from the field to provide their views of the current state of diversity and contribute in discussions at multiple tables lead by hosts addressing different topics (see invited hosts below).
The event will allow hosts and participants to engage in an open and hopefully ongoing dialog to promote and support women in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence.
We are looking to identify existing problems, highlight progress and propose solutions to improve the opportunities and experiences of current and future women in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence.
By participating you will have the opportunity to share your experiences and network with researchers within your field.
