A Hybrid Workshop on Applications and Methods in Acoustics, EM, Radar, and Sonar. There is still time to register for participation via Zoom.

This hybrid workshop is organised 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 Optimisation 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 - 17:00

Where: Online on the zoom platform. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate more attendees on site due to high attendance.
