Call For Papers
The 6th Advanced Course on Data Science & Machine Learning – ACDL 2023 (June 10-14) is a full-immersion five-day Course at the Riva del Sole Resort & SPA (Castiglione della Pescaia – Grosseto – Tuscany, Italy) on cutting-edge advances in Data Science and Deep Learning Learning with lectures delivered by world-renowned experts. The Course provides a stimulating environment for junior and senior academics, early career researches, Post-Docs, PhD students and industry leaders. Participants will also have the chance to present their results with talks, and to interact with their colleagues, in a convivial and productive environment.
MSc students, PhD students, PostDocs, Industry Practitioners, Junior and Senior Academics, and will be typical profiles of the ACDL attendants.The Course will involve a total of 36–40 hours of lectures, according to the academic system the final achievement will be equivalent to 8 ECTS points for the PhD Students and the Master Students attending the Course.
Each Lecturer will hold up to four lectures on one or more research topics.
