SIKS basic courses: "Interactive Systems" and "Combinatory methods"



From June 07-10 2010, the School for Information and Knowledge Systems (SIKS) organizes two basic courses "Interactive Systems" and "Combinatory Methods". Both courses will be given in English and are part of the obligatory Basic Course Program for SIKS-PhD -students. Although these courses are primarily intended for SIKS-PhD-students, other participants are not excluded. However, their number of passes will be restricted and depends on the number of SIKS-PhD -students taking the course.

PROGRAM: The program is not available yet, but may include the following topics:

Combinatory Methods (07-08 June):
  • Neural networks

In the conference center there is a limited number of places and there is interest from other groups in the topic as well. Therefore, an early registration is required.

Deadline for registration for SIKS-Ph.D.-students: May 15 2010

After that date, applications to participate will be honoured in a first-come first-serve manner. Of course, applications to participate from other interested groups are welcome already. They will receive a notification whether they can participate as soon as possible.
