A school and symposium in Data Science in (Astro)-Particle Physics and Cosmology will be held on March 25 to 27 in Braga (Portugal). I am going to lecture on Machine Learning there, while prof. Glen Cowan will provide lectures in Statistics. I have provided a summary of the contents of my lectures in the previous post in this blog. The registrations to attend the school are now open, and I am distributing an announcement here.

Data Science in (Astro)Particle Physics and Cosmology: the Bridge to Industry

LIPUniversity of MinhoIDPASC and the COST action g2net are organizing a school on Data Science in (Astro)Particle Physics and Cosmology, targeted at PhD and MSc students, as well as at researchers from different areas, interested in learning about the use of modern data analysis tools. The school will be held in Braga, Portugal, from 25 to 27 March 2019, and will be followed by the symposium Data Science: Bridging Fundamental Research and Industry (28-29 March 2019), which aims to make the bridge between the academic and industry worlds.

The school will have theory and practical lectures, with a strong hands-on component. The students will be invited for a data challenge where gravitational waves data will be used for a classification problem. The COST action CA17137 - g2net: a network for Gravitational Waves, Geophysics and Machine Learning - will financially  support the participation of some students and young postdocs in this school.

The symposium aims to show the potential of data science in modern society and to stimulate synergies between fundamental research and industry. Representatives from the academy and industry will present the current challenges in data analysis in an informal environment with plenty of time for discussions and networking.

The registration is open until March 1st 2019.
