MSI Seminars

Université Côte d'Azur


The MSI* organizes regular seminars and workshops on data science, artificial intelligence, and data integration applied in several fields such as biology, medicine, social sciences and digital humanities, led by faculty from Université Côte d'Azur or outside speakers both national and international.

Primarily conceived as training opportunities for MSI engineers, these seminars and workshops are open to the entire community of Université Côte d’Azur researchers and engineers within the limits of available places (30 participants max.).

Due to current lockdown measures to fight against the spread of COVID-19, face-to-face seminars are currently cancelled, and they will be rescheduled for a later date
