Since IMPRS-IS was founded, more than 2000 young scientists from around the world have applied to the program, which currently counts more than 110 Ph.D. students. January's event was the fourth round of IMPRS-IS interviews. From more than 770 submitted applications, 102 top candidates from around the world have been invited to participate in the 2021 IMPRS-IS Selection Symposium.
The International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems (IMPRS-IS) brings together the MPI for Intelligent Systems with the University of Stuttgart and the University of Tübingen to form a highly visible and unique graduate school of internationally recognized faculty, working at the leading edge of the field. This program is a key element of Baden-Württemberg’s Cyber Valley initiative to accelerate basic research and commercial development in artificial intelligence.
Each year in January, we host a Symposium with IMPRS-IS applicants. The four-day event will also feature keynote talks by our faculty members Prof. Zeynep Akata and Prof. Frank Allgöwer. Please find the keynote talk details below.
