Summer Schools

The WON Consortium is co-organising different training events such as Open-To-All Workshops, Summer Schools in collaboration with other European Projects, Universities and Research Institutes beyond the framework of the project.

2020
Lake Como School of Advanced Studies, 14-18 September 2020

Due to COVID-19, this event is unfortunately cancelled and will be postponed to a later date in 2021.

The school brings together experts in emerging photonic technologies, machine learning techniques, and fundamental physics who will share with young researchers their knowledge and interdisciplinary approaches for understanding and designing complex photonic systems and their practical applications.  In the new era of artificial intelligence, algorithms and computational interfaces are broadly emerging as novel tools to do scientific research. The paradigms of machine learning also inspire interpretations and methodologies, in both theories and experiments. Nonlinear, quantum and bio-photonics, as well as optical communications, are surprisingly influenced by these new ideas.

The summer school is aimed to explore machine learning applications in the specific fields of nonlinear optics and photonics.

Student registration fee is 600 EUR including coffee-breaks, lunches for 5 days and social dinner.

  • Application Deadline: 30 April 2020
