ACAT 2017 Seattle, a great program ready, join us

ACAT 2017 August 21-25

This ACAT workshop to be held August 21-25 in Seattle remembers its origin back in 1990 when it was called AIHENP (Artificial Intelligence in High Energy and Nuclear Physics). It has been extended to other research fields and other advanced computing topics. But this year a strong emphasis is put on AI again.
Still time to register here join us …
