Participate in the first Arqus RI Workshop on “Artificial Intelligence & Digitalization” that will take place in Lyon in January 2022

Poster of the workshop

In the framework of the Arqus RI project, two large scale workshops on the theme “Artificial Intelligence & Digitalisation” will be organized in 2022. The first workshop will be a 3-day conference hosted by the Universities Lyon 1, Lyon 3 and Saint-Étienne in Lyon from 17th to 19th January.

Academics and researchers from all career stages and all disciplines coming from the Arqus universities are invited to participate.

The advances of Artificial Intelligence (AI) have led to considerable growth in many domains: research, economics, health, ethics and law. This implies some significant transformations in the technologies based on AI systems but also numerous societal impacts.

The objective of this first workshop is to promote exchanges on various aspects of AI. On one hand, a first goal will consist in discussing advances in core AI technologies such as Machine Learning, Robotics, Trustworthy AI, Neuro-symbolic AI, Hybrid AI, AI & ethics. A second objective will be to cover some applications and their associated societal impact, including, but not limited to, AI & Health, AI & Environment, AI & Transport, AI & Society, AI & Energy, Responsible AI and AI & law.

Research groups and laboratories interested in the workshop from Lyon and St-Etienne Universities:

The workshop will be organized around presentations of ongoing projects or already existing Arqus collaborations and shorter presentations on specific topics/research. It will give participants the opportunity to share interests and goals, exchange ideas and identify common interests that might lead to future joint research activities.

The goals of this event are also to develop cooperation between the Arqus European University Alliance members with a particular emphasis on transdisciplinary approaches, plan future answers to E.U. funded calls for projects and develop student exchanges (lecture semesters, research internships, PhD joint supervisions, etc.).

Funding is available for travel and accommodation costs for participants from Arqus universities within the framework of the Arqus European University Alliance. 

Requests for more information and declaration of intent shall be sent before 14th November 2021 to Anne.Giroir-Fendler@ircelyon.univ-lyon1.fr and romain.thinon@univ-lyon1.fr
