Special Afternoon ''Data Science in ENS''

Modèles et Sciences des Données

The ENS and CFM are pleased to celebrate the 1-year anniversary of the CFM-ENS “Modèles et Sciences des Données” Chair with a conference taking place on December 8th, from 12:00 to 17:00 (with lunch buffet at 13:00) in the Salle Jaurès at Ecole Normale Superieure, 29 rue d’Ulm, in Paris.

The conference is centered on the broad topic of data science, with the intention of bringing together researchers from diverse backgrounds, including mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, and neurosciences, who have a common interest in tackling complex and large-scale data problems.

This year, several invited speakers will put a particular focus on the theme “Physics & machine learning”.


Friday, December 8th 2017, 12:00-17:00.
