A Hybrid Workshop on Applications and Methods in Acoustics, EM, Radar, and Sonar. Here we call for contributions in form of presentations, but also invite to participate.

This hybrid workshop is organized in cooperation between Lund University and Saab. The aim is to provide the participants with a venue to discuss and learn about theory and applications of Modern Optimization and Machine Learning. The hybrid format means that you can choose if you participate via Zoom or, if the restrictions in November allow that, participate in person.

The focus is on practical problems and the choice of methods. Presentations will be held by researchers from academia and the industry. Active participation with a 20-minute presentation is encouraged.

When: 23 November 2021, 09.00 - 16.00

Where: Online at the zoom platform and at Lund University
