The Text Analysis and MAchine LEarning Group
The Ottawa Chapter, ACM SIGART


The Friday Seminar Series
3:30 pm
Room 318, third floor, MacDonald Hall, University of Ottawa

Hosted by
the Knowledge Acquisition and Machine Learning lab
at the University of Ottawa

Local (and sometimes not-so-local) speakers present their research and experience in Artificial Intelligence. Seminars are open to the public. Ample free parking is available nowhere near the university, but you can buy hourly permits at the horodateur in parking lot 'X' after 4:00pm (valid in any outdoor parking lot on campus). Before 4:00pm you can only park in a pricey, underground, heated, mega-super-turbo lot 2000 (Brooks or Perez). Here are directions to the University of Ottawa.
