Dear students and researchers of the Leibniz MMS network,

artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are becoming increasingly important for the scientific community. To prepare you for this future, the Leibniz Institute of Surface Engineering (IOM) is hosting a winter school jointly with experts from the Center for Scalable Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence (ScaDS.AI) in Leipzig and Dresden.

The winter school will be a unique opportunity for you to learn the basics of ML, to gain practical experience in using common tools and to solve real-world problems. The winter school will cover a wide range of topics from AI/ML basics to data visualization and working on a high performance cluster (HPC).

The school is free of charge for participants from member institutions of the Leibniz MMS Research Network. A school dinner on Monday (Oct. 16th) and a social activity on Wednesday (Oct. 18th) will give plenty of opportunity to exchange and network. 

Join us for an exciting week in Leipzig from October 16th to 20th. Registration will open on August 1st. Note that due to the limited availability of places, we can only accept one to two participants per Leibniz institute.
