Geometric Deep Learning Hackathon 2022

  • Organizers: Dia Taha, Brice Loustau, Valentina Disarlo, Marta Magnani
  • Location: Foyer of Marsilius Kolleg (Im Neuenheimer Feld 130.1, 69120 Heidelberg)
  • Date: Fri 11.02 – Sun 13.02
  • Description: GDLH2022 is a non-competitive, community-oriented event that connects geometry and deep learning researchers and fosters long-term collaborations. For three days, you will be able to work uninterrupted on a geometric deep learning problem while surrounded by enthusiastic people and delicious food. A list of project suggestions will be provided, and teams are encouraged to formulate and work on their own geometric deep learning projects.
  • Intended audience: graduate students and postdocs with geometry or deep learning backgrounds
  • Registration: Individually fill out the following registration form: before January 26. The limited spots available will be filled on a first-come-first-serve basis.
  • Rules:
