The next MCM conference takes place in (downtown) Paris next 26-30 June. Deadlines are 31 December for mini-symposia/invited sessions and 28 February for contributed talks/posters. I appreciate very much the effort in lowering the registration fees to 80€ for students and 170€ for others, whilst including lunches into the deal! (The view of Paris in the above logo is actually taking from Paris Jussieu campus.)

N[eur]IP[ari]S [23-24 November]

The Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (abbreviated as NeurIPS) will see a mirror version in Paris this Fall, albeit in advance of the main meeting (which starts the week after on 29 November and in New Orleans, hence with a France connection!). The concept is original in that (interested) authors of accepted 2022 NeurIPS papers will present their paper on 23-24 November. Registration is free. But attendance is not guaranteed if the number of registrations exceed the site capacity, in which case attendees will be selected at random.
