Tsinghua Meets the ILLC (University of Amsterdam)

We are happy to open the new series of “Tsinghua Meets…” with a meeting with researchers at the ILLC, University of Amsterdam. We have invited researchers who are either from Tsinghua or the ILLC, or have closely worked with researchers in these institutions, to present their recent work and exchange ideas for future collaboration. We will have a panel discussion to explore further possibilities of joint project, including joint grant applications.

Everyone is welcome to attend the workshop!
