Conferences attended

In Sease we are strong believer in the importance of technical conferences in the Information Retrieval field.
They are the perfect place to expand your skills and learn industry specific knowledge that can help search experts grow.
As speakers at most of the biggest conferences around the world, we deeply care about sharing our researches and ideas in various topics: from search quality evaluation to artificial intelligence in search and machine learning integrations.

Here you can find all the conferences we attended during the years, with info about our talks and speakers (with slides and video).
