Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Lisbon Machine Learning Summer School (LxMLS)

on 24-07-2022

... The Lisbon Machine Learning Summer School (LxMLS) takes place yearly at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST). LxMLS 2022 will be a 6-day event (24-29 July 2022), scheduled to take place as an in-person event.

The school covers a range of machine learning topics, from theory to practice, important for solving natural language processing problems arising in different application areas.

It is organized jointly by Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), a leading Engineering and Science school in Portugal, the Instituto de Telecomunicações, the Instituto de Engenharia de Sistemas e Computadores, Investigação e Desenvolvimento em Lisboa (INESC-ID), the Lisbon ELLIS Unit for Learning and Intelligent Systems (LUMLIS), and Unbabel.

This Summer School addresses mainly researchers and graduate students in the fields of NLP and Computational Linguistics, computer scientists interested in statistics and machine learning, and industry practitioners who desire a more in-depth understanding of these subjects.

No deep previous knowledge of ML or NLP is required, but the attendants are assumed to have some basic background in mathematics and programming. A day zero is scheduled to review basic concepts and introduce the necessary tools for implementation exercises.

Important dates
Application Deadline: May 15th
Notification of Admission: June 1st
Summer School: July 24th-29th

CLONAR - Cloud Native Real Time Systems at ETFA 2022

on 06-09-2022

... The team Mohammad Ashjaei (Mälardalen University), Daniel Corujo (Instituto de Telecomunicações and Universidade de Aveiro) and Paulo Pedreiras (Instituto de Telecomunicações and Universidade de Aveiro) are organizing the Workshop CLONAR - Cloud Native Real Time Systems in conjunction with ETFA 2022.

The workshop will focus on the incorporation of cloud services that have been regarded for the realization and evolution of Industry 4.0 systems. One such cloud-based evolutionary example is the deployment of industrial processes and systems not as a virtualized translation of that system into cloud computing, but instead being built from scratch to be operated over the cloud. These are dubbed cloud-native applications, which embody the main principles of cloud operations, ranging from availability, distribution, scalability, resiliency, and other aspects of equal importance to the industrial domain. The challenge lies when the cloud and factory domains “collide” and complex engineering solutions need to provide the intended benefits, without incurring drawbacks. One of such examples lies with real-time communications, particularly in the scope of hard real-time communications, where the shared infrastructure environments and distributed locality of information pose stringent requirements and complexity for a cloud-native solution.

ETFA 2022 is the 27th Annual Conference of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES) focusing on the latest developments and new technologies in the field of industrial and factory automation. The conference aims to disseminate novel ideas and emerging trends, research results, and practical achievements. ETFA 2022 will be held on September 6-9, 2022, in Stuttgart, Germany.

CLONAR will be held on the first day of the conference, Sept 6. Papers are limited to 8 double-column pages they must comply with ETFA guidelines regarding formatting and must be submitted electronically in PDF format through the conference submission system. Accepted papers must be presented at the workshop to be included in the ETFA conference proceedings available at IEEEXplore.
