The Athens Natural Language Processing Summer School (AthNLP) is set to take place from September 19th to 25th, 2024, at the prestigious NCSR “Demokritos” campus in Athens, Greece. This highly anticipated summer school is organized through a collaborative effort by Athena Research Center, NCSR “Demokritos”, Athens University of Economics and Business (Department of Informatics), and Heriot-Watt University.
 
Building on the success of the inaugural AthNLP in 2019, the 2024 edition promises to deliver an enriching experience for attendees. The summer school aligns closely with the organizers of the Lisbon Machine Learning Summer School (LxMLS), which will be held from July 11th to 17th in Lisbon, fostering a robust exchange of ideas and expertise between these leading events.
 
AthNLP 2024 will feature an extensive range of NLP topics with a strong emphasis on machine learning (ML) methods. The program includes:
  • Morning Lectures: Focused on theoretical foundations of NLP and ML.
  • Afternoon Lab Sessions: Dedicated to practical implementation and experimentation.
  • Evening Talks: Covering cutting-edge research topics, perspectives, and showcasing demos and posters from participants and industry research labs.
Renowned researchers from both academic and industrial sectors will deliver lectures and evening talks. The topics to be covered span a wide spectrum, including classification, sequence prediction, linear models, neural networks, encoder-decoder architectures, machine translation, large language models, and multimodality.
