In addition to ELLIS sites, a European network of top researchers working at locations throughout Europe is being established, organized into ELLIS Programs. These Programs, directed by outstanding European researchers and including leading researchers as Program Fellows, focus on high-impact problem areas that have the potential to move the needle in modern AI.
The ELLIS Programs are inspired by the CIFAR Program model, and closely collaborate with the CIFAR LMB (Learning in Machines and Brains) Program. Each Program has a budget for 2-3 workshops/year to enable meetings of 10-15 Fellows plus guests for intensive scientific exchange. Workshops can be co-located with academic meetings (usually) held in Europe, or organised as stand-alone events, usually at (and with the support of) ELLIS unit sites.
Program directors can invite guests to individual workshops. This ensures that fresh outside ideas are represented, and also that a wider community benefits from the workshops. Fellow Programs are started by a peer review process. The next deadline for submitting a proposal will be announced in 2023. Instructions on how to submit a program proposal can be found here.
While the first batch of Programs was reviewed by CIFAR LMB, subsequent applications are being reviewed by existing ELLIS fellows. For submissions and questions please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
At this point, we have a set of 14 ELLIS Programs:
- ELLIS Health
