NLP lab seminar

The laboratory seminar is primarily meant to present the activities of the active laboratory members: what they are doing, what results they have, what problems they have, which subtasks they are not able to solve and would like to have a collaboration of someone else, etc. Occasionally, and rather rarely, presentations by related department members can also be expected.

The seminar is now held on Tuesdays at 10:00 in B203 (Spring 2023) and is open to anyone interested in the subject (does not have to be active in the lab). It can also be taken as a course PV173 NLP Lab Seminar and earn three credits for active participation, including presentation of your results (achieved in NLP Center projects or on a relevant issue). The seminar is given in English. Presentations can be in English, Czech or Slovak.

Selected presentations are also presented online at authenticated ZOOM. Please upload any attachments to the online presentation by following the instructions. Uploaded videos are available on the video page.
