[DMANET] DeepLearn 2023 Spring: regular registration March 31st



DeepLearn 2023 Spring

Bari, Italy

April 3-7, 2023


Co-organized by:

Department of Computer Science
University of Bari =E2=80=9CAldo Moro=E2=80=9D

Institute for Research Development, Training and Advice =E2=80=93 IRDTA


Regular registration: March 31, 2023



DeepLearn 2023 Spring will be a research training event with a global scope=
aiming at updating participants on the most recent advances in the critica=
l and fast developing area of deep learning. Previous events were held in B=
ilbao, Genova, Warsaw, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Guimar=C3=A3es, Las Palm=
as de Gran Canaria, Lule=C3=A5 and Bournemouth.

Deep learning is a branch of artificial intelligence covering a spectrum of=
current exciting research and industrial innovation that provides more eff=
icient algorithms to deal with large-scale data in a huge variety of enviro=
nments: computer vision, neurosciences, speech recognition, language proces=
sing, human-computer interaction, drug discovery, health informatics, medic=
al image analysis, recommender systems, advertising, fraud detection, robot=
ics, games, finance, biotechnology, physics experiments, biometrics, commun=
ications, climate sciences, bioinformatics, geographic information systems,=
etc. etc. Renowned academics and industry pioneers will lecture and share =
their views with the audience.

Most deep learning subareas will be displayed, and main challenges identifi=
ed through 20 four-hour and a half courses and 3 keynote lectures, which wi=
ll tackle the most active and promising topics. The organizers are convince=
d that outstanding speakers will attract the brightest and most motivated s=
tudents. Face to face interaction and networking will be main ingredients o=
f the event. It will be also possible to fully participate in vivo remotely=

An open session will give participants the opportunity to present their own=
work in progress in 5 minutes. Moreover, there will be two special session=
s with industrial and recruitment profiles.


Graduate students, postgraduate students and industry practitioners will be=
typical profiles of participants. However, there are no formal pre-requisi=
tes for attendance in terms of academic degrees, so people less or more adv=
anced in their career will be welcome as well. Since there will be a variet=
y of levels, specific knowledge background may be assumed for some of the c=
ourses. Overall, DeepLearn 2023 Spring is addressed to students, researcher=
s and practitioners who want to keep themselves updated about recent develo=
pments and future trends. All will surely find it fruitful to listen to and=
discuss with major researchers, industry leaders and innovators.


DeepLearn 2023 Spring will take place in Bari, an important economic centre=
on the Adriatic Sea. The venue will be:

Department of Computer Science
University of Bari =E2=80=9CAldo Moro=E2=80=9D
via Edoardo Orabona, 4
70125 Bari


2 or 3 courses will run in parallel during the whole event. Participants wi=
ll be able to freely choose the courses they wish to attend as well as to m=
ove from one to another.

Full live online participation will be possible. However, the organizers hi=
ghlight the importance of face to face interaction and networking in this k=
ind of research training event.

An open session will collect 5-minute voluntary presentations of work in pr=
ogress by participants. They should submit a half-page abstract containing =
the title, authors, and summary of the research to by March =
26, 2023.


A session will be devoted to 10-minute demonstrations of practical applicat=
ions of deep learning in industry. Companies interested in contributing are=
welcome to submit a 1-page abstract containing the program of the demonstr=
ation and the logistics needed. People in charge of the demonstration must =

The selection of 8 courses requested in the registration template is only t=
entative and non-binding. For the sake of organization, it will be helpful =
to have an estimation of the respective demand for each course. During the =
event, participants will be free to attend the courses they wish.

Since the capacity of the venue is limited, registration requests will be p=
rocessed on a first come first served basis. The registration period will b=
e closed and the on-line registration tool disabled when the capacity of th=
e venue will have got exhausted. It is highly recommended to register prior=
to the event.


Fees comprise access to all courses and lunches. There are several early re=
gistration deadlines. Fees depend on the registration deadline. The fees fo=
r on site and for online participation are the same.
