BioSB PhD retreat 2018
Theme: Machine learning & Deep learning
YoungCB (ISCB Regional Student Group Netherlands) is pleased to invite you to the BioSB PhD retreat 2018 in the afternoon of May 14th. The retreat will be held in Lunteren at the Congrescentrum De Werelt, preceding the BioSB conference.
The retreat is sponsored by the BioSB research school. We encourage all (PhD-) students and young researchers in the fields of computational biology, bioinformatics, systems biology and related fields to attend this annual retreat to discuss your research and build a network with fellow young peers in the Netherlands.
The retreat provides you with the opportunity to present your research to fellow students and young professionals in the form of flash talks. Moroeover, two keynote speakers will present principles and current examples of machine learning algorithms. A third speaker will guide you in a workshop where tricks for data analysis using such algorithms will be performed.
In the evening there will be a dinner in the centre of Lunteren, followed by a fun social event at the conference centre bar. The evening program provides you the opportunity to network with fellow (PhD-) students and young researchers.
