Call For Presentations

About the conference

The Budapest ML Forum aims to provide an overview of the current trends in data science and artificial intelligence. We welcome talks on new ML methods and technologies, case studies and best practices. This conference will be held this year in hybrid format, consisting of one in-person day and one online day.

Key topics

Focus topics for this year are:

  • Computer Vision 
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP)
  • Infrastructure for AI 
  • Data Science tools and methods
  • Machine learning case studies
  • Business and AI (AI strategy, leadership, organization, best practices)

Presentations related to other areas of data science and ML are also welcomed.
Some talks will fit more than one track. In this case feel free to mark both tracks as relevant when filling out the CFP.
Speakers are also welcome to submit more than one talks to the same or to different tracks. 

Session formats

The first day of the conference is planned to take place in Budapest with in-person participation, the second day will be held entirely online. We are accepting proposals for both, so please provide your preferences on the registration form.

A standard speaking slot will be 30 minutes long and a quick talk will be 15-minutes long.

We are looking for both beginner-level or in-depth technical talks. The conference is bilingual, so English and Hungarian talk submissions are both welcome.

Talk types

Based on past years, the following talk types are usually well received:

  • Technology presentations: These presentations showcase software technologies relevant to the conference topics, either at beginner or advanced levels.
  • Case studies: Presentation based on ongoing or completed projects, discussing the goals, the process, the results (expected or realized) and lessons learned
  • Tips and best practices: Sharing experiences and best practices for data-related technical or business topics.

Speaker benefits

If your talk gets selected for the conference schedule, you’ll receive the following benefits:

  • Discover Budapest. Our city is one of the most beautiful and inviting travel destination in Europe, and speaking at the Budapest ML conference will give a great chance to explore it.
  • Meet the local community. As a speaker, you will have ample opportunities to meet other speakers, attendees and members of the local data community.
  • Free conference ticket. The selected speakers receive free registration to both days of the conference.
  • Meals included. All conference meals included in the registration (coffee breaks, lunch, welcome reception)
  • Financial support. We have a budget for helping great speakers to attend the conference. The budget is limited and will be allocated partly by the merit of the talk and partly to support speaker diversity.
