The International Summer School on resource-aware Machine Learning brings together lectures from the research area of data analysis (Machine Learning, data mining, statistics) and embedded systems (cyber-physical systems). It aims at taking into account the constraint of limited resources of host devices used for data analysis. The lectures are held by leading experts in these domains. The Summer School is organized by the Collaborative Research Center 876 (SFB 876).
The Summer School will be offered as a hybrid event. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it is not guaranteed that every international participant/lecturer can visit Dortmund. The event will thus be a mixture of local and some remote lectures. All lectures will also be streamed via Zoom and Youtube to the remote audience of participants that could not travel to Germany. Lectures will be available on-demand on YouTube during the week of the Summer School. Each lecture will be accompanied by a Q&A session. There will be a dedicated space for presenting Ph.D./PostDoc research (Students’ Corner) and a hackathon featuring real-world ML tasks ("Predicting Virus-Like Particles in Liquid Samples").

The summer school is accompanied by a hackathon about "Predicting Virus-Like Particles in Liquid Samples". Fitting the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, participants are challenged with the detection of nanoparticles such as viruses. Using a plasmon-assisted microscopy sensor that can make nanometer-sized particles visible, we provide real-world images containing virus-like signals. The participants are challenged to test their knowledge of Machine Learning and cyber-physical systems in this real-world scenario. In this hackathon, they aim to achieve the most reliable and rapid detection possible with limited resources.
Students’ Corner - Share and discuss your work
The summer school will be accompanied by an exchange platform for participants, the Students' Corner, which will allow them to network and share their research. Through this, participants will have the opportunity to present their research to each other. Additionally, graduate students from CRC 876 will present the research of their projects. The student corner will take place over the Summer School week. These sessions will provide enough time to discuss and present research and projects among the participants.
