The MANUTECH SLEIGHT Graduate School is pleased to invite you to this year’s SLEIGHT Science Event

From July 5, 2021 to July 9, 2021

The MANUTECH-SLEIGHT Graduate School of Research is organizing its sixth “SLEIGHT Science Event – SSE#6” from July 5 to 9, 2021. The theme of this year’s event will be Machine Learning.

The week will include introductory classes/tutorials on Machine Learning (20 hours) for academics (Master’s students, PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and research professors) who would like to improve their skills in this field and use Machine Learning in their surface engineering research activities. The courses are specifically designed for those who are not experts in the field.

As in every edition, the program will be divided into various sessions:

  • A “Pitch” session (short presentations given by Master’s students),
  • A PhD session and scientific workshops organized the scientific axes #1 and #3 of MANUTECH SLEIGHT Graduate School,
  • And last but not least, short sessions on “Company Experiences in AI” will be organized in collaboration with the MINALOGIC competitiveness cluster.

Registration is mandatory and is open to all members of MANUTECH SLEIGHT and the Université de Lyon’s laboratories.

The SSE#6 is organized in partnership with the LabEx MILYON, the MEGA, MATERIAUX and SIS doctoral schools, the AFM and MINALOGIC. The event is supported by the PIA3-ANR (French National Research Agency’s Investments for the Future program) and Saint-Étienne Métropole.
