With PhD students, postdocs, and associated researchers, we organize weekly seminars - currently only online. In this weekly group meeting, we alternate presentations by invited researchers on the topics of missing data, causal inference but also ML/statistics in general, with presentations by students of the group and also paper reading sessions.
Here you can find a list of group meetings with abstracts. We regularly update the links and list of confirmed speakers. Please contact Bénédicte Colnet or Pan Zhao if you are interested to get the slides or if you want to visit us or to receive the announcement for the talks.

We also organize common group meetings with Gaël Varoquaux’s Inria team. For more information about these group meetings, contact Bénédicte Colnet.
Members of our group follow different seminars and events, a selection is given in the google calendar. Additionally, we keep a list of conferences and summer schools that some of us potentially plan to attend here.
