Description

We are glad to announce the first annual PhD event in Computer Science research, hosted by the Department of Computer Science of the University of Pisa. The event will be structured in three main sessions: Big Data & Artificial Intelligence, Industry 4.0 and beyond, Internships and Awards. Students will pitch for 10 mins about the results contained in their PhD thesis, or about worth-to-mention internship experiences in companies, or about awards they got in 2018 for their researches.

A stunning half-day event, with a number of inspiring presentations given by our PhD students on their research achievements, innovation impact and future research perspectives.

The event is totally free and open to everyone. Undergraduate students, professors, researchers as well as innovators and companies are warmly invited to attend.

The event will be broadcasted in live-streaming on the Mediateca platform of the University of Pisa.

Below there is the agenda of the event, click here for its printable version.
