#NGSchool2019: Machine Learning for Biomedicine

As you know, we try to keep the #NGSchool registration fee as low as possible and we do our best to find external support. We rely heavily on funding from public sources to provide equal possibilities to all the participants and keep the school affordable for students from Eastern and Central European countries. Over the past three years, we relied principally on funding from the International Visegrad Fund. We are happy to inform you that this year our grant proposal to finance #NGSchool2019 was approved again. On top of that we were able to secure additional support, which will help us provide cutting edge, affordable training.

#NGSchool2019 will be held between 24 and 31 October in Promenada (Białobrzegi, Poland).

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or require additional information.

Program & speakersngs19_logo

This year, we are planning to host a 8-day event of the following scheme:

  • Days 1 and 2 with introductory workshops held by the organizers intended to bring all participants to the same level;
  • Days 3 through 5 with workshops and lectures on Machine Learning given by the invited speakers;
  • Half of Day 6 - a breather - networking event (sailing or hiking, depending on the venue),
  • Rest of Day 6, and Days 7 and 8 - 5 parallel hackathons (max. 6 participants per group) guided by the mentors, concluded by hackathon presentations and summary.

With the workshops we want to cover most, if not all, topics outlined in ESL (among others: regression, classification, models (additive, trees etc.), boosting, neural networks, unsupervised learning, and other related topics).
