Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it was decided to postpone this event to a future date to be defined. 

We took in serious consideration the opportunity of switching to an online event, but it would hardly help as a kick-off for collaborations between the many groups represented.

Do not hesitate to contact us for doubts or requests for clarifications.

Apologies for the difficulties this cancellation may cause. 

Best regards,
  Lucio Anderlini for the organizers. 

The renaissance of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence taking place during the last decade is affecting the hardware, the algorithms and the software libraries in use to conduct scientific searches.

MLPћ brings together machine-learning practitioners with experts of the distributed, large-scale computing infrastructure developed and operated to process and simulate large datasets from physics experiments. 


The Workshop will be organized in four tracks: 

  • Machine Learning in High Energy Physics;

  • Machine Learning for Fundamental Physics;

  • Machine Learning for Medical Physics;

  • Hardware and Infrastructure for large-scale Machine Learning.  


On Thursday, October 22nd and Friday October 23rd, in the same venue, INFN_ML will organize a Hackathon as a satellite event. Read more...
