4th TAILOR Conference – Trustworthy AI from lab to market

4-5 June 2024 in Lisbon, Portugal

The theme for the fourth and final conference organised by the TAILOR network is Trustworthy AI from lab to market. Together, we’ll investigate the recent findings from some of the most prominent AI researchers in Europe, with an outlook on how this can be implemented by European industry. We also dedicate parts of this conference to Europe’s young AI talent, who will be invited to present their work in poster sessions and parallel workshops.

Keynote speakers

Confirmed keynote speakers are:

  • Iryna Gurevych
  • Subbarao Kambhampati
  • Carles Sierra
  • Wendy Ju
  • Fredrik Heintz

Detailed programme

The detailed programme is available here.

Workshops and back-to-back events

Before, during and after the main event back-to-back or parallel workshops will be organised.

Poster session

The poster session is the perfect opportunity to present and discuss your work with some of the worlds leading AI scientists!


The event will take place across two distinct venues. Find all info as wells as links to maps and recommended hotels on the logistics page.


Register to the full conference is closed and the event is fully booked. The open session on day 2 (5th June, afternoon session) is open to a wider audience. It is free of charge. Please register by 4th June using this form:  https://forms.gle/nc12C7ZG2fdRJZ8m7

  • Wendy Ju
    Wendy Ju

    Wendy Ju is an Associate Professor of Information Science at Cornell University. She is also an inaugural faculty member of Cornell’s new campus-wide multidisciplinary Design Tech department, and an Associate Professor at the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute at Cornell Tech and the Technion. Professor Ju’s work in the areas of human-robot interaction and automated vehicle interfaces highlights the ways that interactive devices can communicate and engage people without interrupting or intruding. Her current research focus is on everyday urban interaction. Professor Ju has innovated numerous methods for early-stage prototyping of automated systems to understand how people will respond to systems before the systems are built. She has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford, and a Master’s in Media Arts and Sciences from MIT. Her monograph on The Design of Implicit Interactions was published in 2015.
