The school welcomes applications from candidates all over the world, regardless of their level of expertise in Machine Learning or whether they are students or not; see FAQ.

A limited number of scholarships will be offered to participants, based on financial considerations; see Application form below.

For some countries, visa processing might take long. Check FAQ and contact us at if this is your case!

To apply for attending the school, candidates are required to fill in the Application form below to provide:

  • personal information
  • a brief statement of research interests (max. 3000 characters)
  • an up-to-date CV
  • (optional) an abstract of a Machine Learning project they worked on. Submitting the project abstract and presenting the project as a poster during the school increases the chances of being selected.
  • information justifying the scholarship request if applicable; see FAQ

Abstract guidelines

  • The work does not need to be novel; e.g., you can describe your experience in reproducing published work, but be original and add a personal twist! See FAQ.
  • It is possible to submit the abstract of a paper that you've already published. In this case, please specify in the abstract the venue where the paper was published.
  • The abstract must not exceed two pages, excluding references.
  • Use whatever layout you prefer (for latex, we recommend NIPS format).
  • Submissions are not blind: author(s) names and affiliations should appear on the first page.
  • Documents must be submitted in pdf format.
  • Best posters and most original ideas will be awarded during the school.
