Giving a talk at Montreal Machine Learning meetup group would be a great exposure to your work during the evening of the event as well as in front of a global audience thanks to the YouTube videos that will be prepared for each presentation and lightning talk (on a best-effort basis). It’s also a fantastic opportunity to get feedback on your work from fellow ML devs during the following networking/brainstorming session.

Criteria for presentations/lightning talks

Main presentation/tutorial

  • Practical, industry-oriented presentation or tutorial
  • Must use open-source, freely available libraries/tools
  • Must share technical details and/or code snippets to educate the audience, i.e., it must not be a pure presentation of results and outputs
  • Duration: 30-60 minutes

Lightning Talks

  • Duration: 5-15 minutes each
  • There is no restriction regarding the topic as long as it clearly relates to Data Science, i.e., proprietary products and services and related are welcome; specifically, the talk can be:
    • an industrial project
    • a tutorial on an ML tool/process
    • an academic paper
    • an interesting work you’ve done as a hobby
