Welcome to our website for the 2nd International summer school on "Deep Learning and Visual Data Analysis". The school aims at bringing together students, researchers and professionals from different fields and different countries to explore the challenges and recent developments in the field. The summer school is a collaboration between the Universities of Vienna and Ostrava – the first summer school took place in Ostrava in 2017, this year it will be hosted in Vienna.

The Summer School introduces participants to the basic principles and rules of deep learning and deep neural networks and their applications in computing. 

Please note, that our application phase has ended

 Who can apply?

As we are aiming for a diverse and interdisciplinary group, a background in machine learning or visualization is not required. But we do require a technical background with some programming experience. There will be introductory courses focusing on Deep Learning and Visualization.


What to expect:
