Workpackage : WP1
Applications of Neural Networks - workshop
Start date or start event : 3 month
Objectives :
The workshop will be a part of the "XLIII Cracow School of Theoretical Physics" - international event of world reputation, with many Nobel prize winners as lecturers - held in Zakopane, Poland, June 2003. It has the following objectives:
  1. Introduce young researchers to modern computer science techniques.
  2. Present interdisciplinary applications of neural networks (physics, biology, business, economy).
  3. Promote exchange and collaboration between research and educational institutions.
  4. Dissemination of modern computer science in the society.
Description :
Neural Networks are a modern concept of computer science which found its applications in variety of fields ranging from fundamental science to social and economic problems. Therefore it is important to introduce this concept during various, usually monothematic conferences and schools. The Cracow School of Theoretical Physics is one of the oldest series events of this type in Europe . It gathers each year about 80 participants, among them numerous students from all over Europe. The researchers of the DACM were members of the Organising Committee of this School several times. The workshop will consist of a series of introductory lectures, followed by advanced seminars. This will make the concept of neural networks accessible to all participants. Advanced seminars will stimulate applications in other disciplines. In addition lectures at elementary level open to public will also be presented.
Time and location : Zakopane Poland, June 2003.
Number of invited lecturers : 5
