Call for Presentations — Deep Learning Symposium

August 15

UNC Research Computing along with Nvidia and SAS are hosting a two day symposium on Deep Learning (DL), Machine Learning (ML), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the SAS campus in Cary, NC, on September 27-28, 2018. Deep Learning, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence, technologies are transforming diverse scientific, engineering and business domains. This is a call for presentations that characterize the use of these technologies in research.

We are soliciting calls for presentations. To be considered for a 30 minute speaking slot please submit a short abstract (1 page maximum) to


The deadline for submission is August 15, 2018. All contributions will be acknowledged and notification will be made by August 29.

The symposium has two components:

  1. Educational Workshops — led by Nvidia instructors on topics including Deep Learning for healthcare and image analysis, genomics, image segmentation and classification, neural networks and more.
  2. Research Usage Presentations — by researchers in the triangle and beyond, on how DL, ML and AI methods are being used to further their research. This includes faculty and students from regional universities such as Carolina, Duke and State, and researchers from the commercial sector such as SAS and Nvidia.

We will share ideas and knowledge and hope to generate new avenues of inquiry and collaboration.

Topics of Interest

Use of deep learning, machine learning and artificial intelligence in research including but not limited to applications including health care, robotics, language processing, speech recognition, image recognition, drug discovery, neural networks, recommendation systems, bioinformatics as well as challenges faced, and new avenues of inquiry into the methodology and frameworks.

Symposium Audience

UNC, Duke, and NC State faculty, students and researchers interested in DL, ML and AI as well as other university researchers across the state.
