In cooperation with the ELLIS PhD Program, the ELLIS Unit Alicante is organizing the second ELLIS Doctoral Symposium (EDS), which is set to take place as an in-person event from September 19th to 23rd, 2022, in Alicante. The symposium will give young researchers from the European machine learning community an opportunity to discuss their research, network with leading machine learning experts, and interact with each other at social events. The theme of this year’s ELLIS Doctoral Symposium is AI for Good, and will host several keynote speakers working on topics such as data for good, climate, health, and fairness.
The symposium will host 200 PhD students from the ELLIS network who will present their ongoing research during workshops, poster sessions and tooling sessions. Participants will also have the opportunity to interact with senior researchers. The speakers and panellists are: Virginia Dignum (Wallenberg Program on Humanities and Society for AI, Autonomous Systems and Software (WASP-HS) & Umeå University), Emilia Gomez (Joint Research Centre, European Commission & Universitat Pompeu Fabra), Krishna Gummadi (Max Planck Institute for Software Systems), Emmanuel Letouzé (Data-Pop Alliance & Universitat Pompeu Fabra), Christopher Markou (University of Cambridge), John Shawe-Taylor (University College London), Irina Shklovski (University of Copenhagen), Mihaela van der Schaar (University of Cambridge), and Xiaoxiang Zhu (German Aerospace Center (DLR) & Technical University of Munich).

Participants are expected to present a poster or prepare a tooling session with a strong machine learning component. The organizers will prioritize active members of the ELLIS network, and students who are early in their PhDs. A smaller number of slots will be reserved for local participants of the University of Alicante as well as AIDA students.
