VISUM PROGRAMME | lectures, industry, project & posters

 

* This edition will have a Day 0 (July, 05) with lectures dedicated to the fundamentals of VISUM main topics  (attendance is optional)

** videoconference lecture

During the “Hands-on” sessions, project sessions and hackathon, students may choose to organize themselves in teams and participate in a project/competition organized by the VISUM team. The competition will be hosted in a platform for collaborative data science and will cover the topics of VISUM 2018.

The main idea is to encourage the students to put what they have learned in the theoretical classes into practice.

Best project prize

As talent should be rewarded, the winning team of the project competition will be awarded with a prize money of 1200€ and certificates.

medal

In this year edition, we will promote posters sessions during the coffee breaks. We want to promote the interaction between VISUM attendees, giving them the opportunity to present and discuss their work with scientific peers.

All the candidates are encouraged to bring their own posters that will be displayed during all the event.
