When? 5-6 October 2019

Where? Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania

Hosts
RSBI (@RoBioinfo) and Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, Babes-Bolyai University

Aim

  • Familiarise the audience with common topics in Biology that can be approached and solved using Machine Learning algorithms.
  • Get hands-on experience with software packages that facilitate running Machine Learning algorithms.

Registration

Registration is now open. Please fill in the registration form until 8 September. We aim to announce the final list of participants by 10 September.

Registration fee is 50 Euro for students, 80 Euro for other members of the academia and 120 Euro for everyone else and will cover coffee breaks, lunches and dinner. Payment information will be communicated after the selection process.

Target audience: BSc, MSc, Phd students and young researchers who are confortable with at least one programming language and are already familiar with common Machine Learning algorithms and methods.
