Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) is dedicated to fostering scientific brilliance. We invite esteemed scientists from around the globe to the picturesque shores of Lake Geneva, offering a perfect backdrop for in-depth discussions, brainstorming, and seminars. Our aim? To nurture the future of science by facilitating rich exchanges of knowledge and expertise.
Kicking off our series of groundbreaking events, the IAS will delve into 'Automating & Accelerating Scientific Discovery'. Here, the spotlight will be on generative models and their pivotal role in addressing the challenges faced in particle physics. We are on the cusp of a revolution, where advanced machine learning is poised to surpass traditional methodologies. This event will navigate topics such as diffusion, score, foundation models, and their myriad applications spanning inverse problems, generative model challenges, and out-of-distribution detection.
At the heart of the IAS lies interaction. By inviting both global and local UNIGE scientists, we foster an environment ripe for the exchange of innovative ideas on machine learning and particle physics. In the inaugural week, our esteemed guests will have the platform to present their research to a wider audience of physics and ML enthusiasts at the UNIGE campus.
Highlighting our commitment to community engagement, the IAS will host three public sessions. Scheduled for the 29th September (08:30 - 12:00), 4th October (14:15 - 18:00), and keynote lecture from Konstantin Novoselev (Nobel Laureate 2010) on 5th October (18:00 - 19:00) these sessions, featuring talks from all our distinguished guests, are open to the general public.
See the registration deadlines at the schedule section.
Lastly, we're orchestrating a joint social activity over the weekend. Stay tuned for more details!
