Welcome to the 28th 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 Machine Learning and Statistics; Information and Networks; Control and Game Theory; Algorithms and Optimization. Along with a panel discussion, this conference is a yearly highlight.
