Please apply via the registration page with your official email address to prove your affiliation.
The final participants will be selected and informed after the registration deadline has passed.


During this online bootcamp, participants will learn how to apply AI tools, techniques, and algorithms to real-life problems. Participants will be introduced to the critical concepts of deep neural networks, how to build deep learning models, and how to measure and improve the accuracy of your models. Participants will also learn essential data pre-processing techniques to ensure a robust machine-learning pipeline. This online bootcamp is a hands-on learning experience where instructors/teaching assistants guide you. 

This bootcamp is co-organised by the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS)Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC)Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ)Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC)OpenACC organization, and NVIDIA for EuroCC Austria and EuroCC@GCS, the Austrian and German National Competence Centres for High-Performance Computing.
