Summer schools offer students and researchers the opportunity to receive intensive training in a specific field in an international environment from international instructors which goes beyond that what can be typically taught in regular university courses. Thus, summer schools foster bonding and cooperation between students and researchers at an international level. They further create an exchange of diverse ideas and views on a research topic, which in turn will create new research ideas and directions which can be followed in a joint effort.
CLICS therefore conducts summer schools in a joint effort among all partners, in order to offer participants a state-of-the-art event with up-to-date research results and under the guidance of internationally renowned instructors and research partners.
CLICS conducted the following summer or winter schools:
1) Challenges in Automatic Speech Recognition, Seattle, USA (Dec. 04-09, 2016)
The first CLICS Winter School took place at Microsoft Research, Seattle Redmond on Dec. 04-09, 2016. The Winter School was connected to the "International Conference on Spoken Language Translation IWSLT".
See the program of the first Winter School here...
2) Machine Translation (NAIST, Dec. 10-16, 2017)
The second CLICS Winter School took place at NAIST, Tokyo on Dec. 14-15, 2017. Again we combined the Winter School with "International Conference on Spoken Language Translation IWSLT" @ CLICS partner Waseda University. See the program of the second Winter School here..., For Pictures of our winter schools follow us here ...
3) Neural Models for Speech Translation (KIT & CMU, May-Aug 2018)
For the third CLICS Summer School we developed a new concept: Outstanding PhD students from KIT and CMU worked over several months on a cutting edge problem: Neural models for speech translation. The school was accompanied by longer research stays at the respective universities.
