Welcome to the 26th annual LIDS Student Conference! The annual LIDS student conference provides an opportunity for graduate students to present their research to peers as well as to the community at large. This year, the conference will be held virtually on February 3, 2021, via Zoom (Previously scheduled for January 27, 2021).
As we approach the date of the conference, more information regarding the talk schedule, abstracts, bios, and zoom links will be posted on the conference website: https://lidsconf.mit.edu/2021/ .
This year, we are delighted to have two plenary speakers:
- Kimon Drakopoulos (University of Southern California)
- Zico Kolter (Carnegie Mellon University)
Student talks provide an excellent opportunity for you to get your research known, exchange ideas with your peers, and receive feedback from other conference participants, including MIT students, faculty, as well as invited guests from other academic institutions and industry. Sign-ups are non-binding, and the presentations can be on anything ranging from preliminary results to published papers. We will also have prizes for the best presentations!
