Conferences provide innovation crucibles all around the world, bringing together bright minds who expand the limits of what is possible. They also offer a platform for researchers, practitioners, and enthusiasts to share their latest findings, breakthroughs, and innovations. This knowledge exchange accelerates the dissemination of cutting-edge research across the community.
Generative AI conferences draw attention by promoting global collaboration and are essential for addressing diverse challenges, leveraging a broad range of perspectives, and ensuring that productive technologies are developed responsibly and inclusively.
Here’s a list of influential conferences that bring together researchers, practitioners, and enthusiasts from around the globe:
MLDS (Machine Learning Developers Summit)
Scheduled every year, MLDS is one of the biggest generative AI conferences in India. Mostly hosted in Bengaluru, this conference brings together some of India’s top machine-learning specialists. There will be networking and educational opportunities at the event to help C-suite executives and engineers alike comprehend the implications of technology.
MLDS is a comprehensive summit that covers a broad spectrum of machine learning topics, including generative AI. It includes keynote sessions, hands-on workshops, and networking opportunities, making it a valuable event for beginners and experienced professionals.
NeurIPS (Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems)
Established in 1987, NeurIPS has evolved into a dynamic and multidimensional annual event featuring multiple tracks that span various disciplines. Usually held in the month of December internationally by the Neural Information Processing Systems Foundation, this is one of the largest gatherings in the AI community, featuring a wide range of topics, including generative models.
The conference includes workshops, tutorials, and keynote presentations from leading experts in the field and big companies like Microsoft, Google, IBM, etc, participate as sponsors for specific events and contests of the conference. It has been decided that this annual conference will be held again this year at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center from December 10th to 16th.
ICML (International Conference on Machine Learning)
Recognised as one of the three cornerstone conferences with a significant impact on machine learning and artificial intelligence research, ICML is usually held in July and is hosted by the International Machine Learning Society. This conference serves as a premier machine learning conference that often showcases cutting-edge research on generative models. The conference includes paper presentations, poster sessions, and invited talks.
ICML, first launched in 1980 in Pittsburgh, provides a forum for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss the most recent advances and challenges in machine learning. The conference invites prominent researchers and industry experts to deliver keynote speeches, sharing insights into the latest trends and challenges in machine learning. ICLM 2024 is scheduled to start from the 21st to the 27th of July at Messe Wien Exhibition Congress Center, Vienna, Austria
CVPR (Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition)
Hosted by the IEEE Computer Society, the first CVPR was held in 1983 in Washington DC by Takeo Kanade and Dana Ballard and is usually held in June. While primarily focused on computer vision, CVPR frequently features research on generative models for image synthesis. It attracts researchers and professionals from both academia and industry.
It covers a wide range of topics within computer vision, including image and video analysis, deep learning, 3D vision, object recognition, and more. CVPR promotes open access to research findings, allowing for the widespread dissemination of knowledge within the computer vision community. The event is set to be conducted this year from June 17th to 21st at the Seattle Convention Center.
IJCAI (International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence)
IJCAI has been the longest-standing premier AI conference series globally since 1969 and typically conducts the conference during the month of August. It is a general AI conference that may include presentations on various topics, including generative AI. It provides a platform for researchers and practitioners to share their latest findings.
Usually, the event used to be held biennially in odd-numbered years, and since 2016, it has been scheduled as an annual event. It focuses on workshops and tutorials on specialised topics, offering participants the opportunity for in-depth learning and discussion while featuring keynote speeches by prominent researchers and thought leaders in artificial intelligence. The conference is a global event, and IJCAI-24 is scheduled for August 3–9 in Jeju Island, South Korea, followed by IJCAI-25 in Montreal, Canada, and IJCAI-ECAI-26 in Bremen, Germany.
AAAI (Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence)
AAAI, which was first held in 1980 at Stanford University, is a major AI conference, usually held in February, that features research on generative AI. It includes technical paper presentations, invited talks, and tutorials. AAAI covers a wide range of topics within artificial intelligence, including but not limited to machine learning, knowledge representation, reasoning, planning, robotics, natural language processing, and applications of AI.
In addition to the leading AAAI conference, the Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence (IAAI) conference focuses on applied AI and real-world applications. AAAI includes tutorials and workshops on specialised topics, and the 38th Annual AAAI Conference is set to be held from February 20 to 27 in Vancouver, Canada.
AISTATS (International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Statistics)
AISTATS, founded in 1985, serves as a crossroads for researchers blending computer science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, statistics, and allied domains. It is held annually in April, focusing on the intersection of artificial intelligence and statistics and featuring research that may include generative models. The conference includes contributed talks, poster sessions, and tutorials.
AISTATS emphasises the integration of statistical methods with artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques. The conference showcases cutting-edge research in statistical modelling, learning algorithms, and the application of statistical techniques to real-world problems. The 27th edition of the International Conference AISTATS is taking place in Valencia, Spain, from May 2 to May 4, 2024.
