Machine Learning and Medicine — 7 July 2023

This one-day workshop is jointly organized by the Center for Data and Simulation Science (CDS) and the Data-Driven Medical Research (DDMR) network.

The workshop will take place at the Seminar building of the University of Cologne.

Each presenting department/group will prepare a 5-minute elevator pitch and a poster providing insights into your department's/group's work and achievements, incl. current and planned use cases (if applicable), especially those for which you seek collaborators. Your presentation should focus on key findings and important information, while the poster should include essential details about your department's work.
