Smile Student Open House

The Statistical Machine Learning and its Applications (SMiLe): Student Open House was held on October 8th and 9th, 2009, at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY.

The event was joint organized by the AI, KDD, NLP, and UIT PICs, and hosted 28 Ph.D. students from top academic institutions in the US. Participants presented their research in 15 minute talks.

Details on the event can be found in the main SMiLe page.
