Agenda – Artificial Intelligence (AI) Expo

The Laboratory’s Artificial Intelligence Initiative invites you to join an exposition of the rich and diverse AI research occurring across campus.

The goal of AI Expo is to:

  • showcase ORNL’s AI capabilities
  • highlight outstanding science and engineering based on AI across different domains,
  • enable possible collaboration opportunities between domain experts and AI experts across the laboratory,
  • highlight potential domain science needs addressable with AI,
  • identify potential research topics in AI.

The AI Expo welcomes posters on any AI-related research including AI applications, foundational AI, math and computer science, and hardware and software.

If you would like to present a poster, please send a title, author list, and a short abstract (less than 100 words) to by July 20.

The Expo will be held on September 7th in the ORNL Conference Center (Bldg. 5200) and consists of keynote presentations as well as poster sessions. ORNL staff interested and involved in AI research and application are welcome to attend.

Registration is required for all attendees and will be open until August 15.
