Welcome to the 24th Annual LIDS Student Conference!
The annual LIDS Student Conference is a student-organized, student-run conference that provides an opportunity for graduate students and postdocs to present their research to peers as well as to the community at large. This year, we are delighted to welcome four distinguished plenary speakers accompanying student sessions in Optimization and Algorithms, Networks, Machine Learning and Statistics, and Control Theory and Applications. Along with a panel discussion and a celebratory banquet at Samberg Conference Center, this conference is a yearly highlight.
