Second Inria-DFKI European Summer School on AI (IDESSAI 2022)

Registration deadline: May 9th, 2022


IDESSAI 2022 is the second yearly Summer School organized by the two renowned German and French AI institutes, DFKI and Inria. It stands out from the crowd of offerings for AI students in several aspects:

We ensure a good balance in the number of participants and instructors: participants will have the opportunity to join a community of like-minded people, and, at the same time, they will be in close contact with the experts.
Our program features a line-up of courses focused on two themes, Trusted AI, and Sustainable AI, which are at the forefront of socio-economic issues related to AI.
On top of the latest methodological advances and the shared vision of the future that both organizing institutes have to offer, IDESSAI 2022 will be practically oriented. We will achieve this through hands-on courses and the involvement of industry practitioners and innovators.
Participants will be offered to the opportunity to present their work to each other in dedicated poster/demo sessions.
Trusted AI and AI Sustainable AI will take place in two parallel tracks. There will be plenty of opportunities to exchange between these two tracks at coffee breaks, meals, and social events, as well as through joint cross-track sessions.


IDESSAI 2022 was designed for PhD students in all areas of AI, including machine learning, knowledge representation and reasoning, search and optimisation, planning and scheduling, multi-agent systems, natural language processing, robotics, computer vision, and other areas. PhD students in other fields, MSc students, postdocs, and researchers in academia and industry are also welcome.

IDESSAI 2022 is planned as a fully in-person event, which will take place at the University of Saarland. Remote attendance will not be possible. Participants will comply with the health and social distancing rules in force at the time of the event.
