First OpenNMT Workshop in Paris - Registration is open!

We (@srush, and myself) are considering organising a first OpenNMT workshop in Paris on March 1-3.

The idea would be have few general presentation session on OpenNMT, invited speakers talking about their experience using OpenNMT for their business/research, hands on session presenting new cool features that will be already/soon released, discussions on the roadmap/community management/support models and whatever other cool topic you would like to bring.

We would like to know your thoughts about this - and please forward around to anyone interested so that we know…

Would you attend?

  • Certainly not :angry: !
  • Yes of course :v:
  • Possible to attend through visioconf :computer: ?
  • Not sure

If not - what is the main blocking criterion:

  • too short notice
  • too far and travel is expensive
  • not interested to meet the community :grin:
  • can not take time off
  • dates are not good

What is the (tentative) venue?

@jean.senellart - Thanks for setting this up; travel to Paris is probably too difficult to set up, but thanks for all the info that is provided on this forum. It is extremely helpful as we are in the process of migrating to the new NMT model.

Other commitments permitting I’d certainly be interested :slight_smile:

Hi, I think it is a great idea and if it happens, I would be very interested to attend the WS. @jean.senellart @srush, once it is decided, can you then confirm the dates and a tentative program.

Regards, Mihael

Interesting workshop !

Could you share more information about the Hackathon in second day ?


Hi all, the program for the workshop is now available on the website - there will probably still be few adjustments but this gives a global idea. We are having more requests than what we initially thought and had to close the registration. We will be recording the day so that everybody can catch-up.
During the hackathon, several sessions will be proposed from hands-on trainings, to advanced sessions for developers, and we will also propose several “one-day” projects for kicking-off collaborative development of new features or side-projects. Bring your own requests/ideas too and we will try to make the best out of the day.


If you could come to the United States, I could absolutely attend. If you could come to Utah specifically, I could have a number of people attend.
