The Deep Learning School "Basic Concepts" is hosted by the community organization DIG-UM with support from the BMBF-funded ErUM-Data-Hub. The event serves the professional education of young scientists belonging to the ErUM Community.

In August 2023, we will host for the third time the Deep Learning School at Landhaus Nordhelle in Meinerzhagen. In a comfortable ambience, intensive classes on Neural Network Building Blocks, Mastering Model Building and Convolutional Neural Networks will be held over 4 days. The workshop is aimed at deep-learning starters from all ErUM communities (Research on Universe and Matter) who have a basic knowledge of physics. 

A fee of 300€ will be charged for participation in the school. The workshop fee includes the cost of the workshop, accommodation and catering. Registration closes July 24th, 2023 (18:00 CET).
