Workshop - Scientific Machine Learning (Semester Programme)

Connecting the international and national research community

6 Dec 2023 from 9 a.m. to 8 Dec 2023 3 p.m. CET (GMT+0100)
Amsterdam Science Park Congress Centre, Turing room, Science Park 125, Amsterdam (Next to the entrance of CWI)


This event is aimed at bringing together Dutch researchers who are working in or interested in the emerging topic of Scientific Machine Learning. For example, researchers with a background in applied mathematics, computational physics or computer science, both early career and senior researchers.
