COVID-19 Update

Currently, we have no plans of cancelling the Nordic Probabilistic AI School.

Please be assured that we are closely monitoring the situation around the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and we are following the advice of local, national and international health authorities.

Should the status change, we will inform you through all available communication channels.

Cancellation Policy

There is a negligible risk in applying and eventually registering to ProbAI 2020.

The registration fee will be fully refunded in the following cases:

  • If ProbAI 2020 cannot be held.
  • If registration cancelled until May 7.
  • If registration cancelled due to your inability to participate as a result of governmental restrictions related to COVID-19.

Recommendation: After an eventual registration, we highly recommend arranging travel insurance also covering a trip cancellation.

Selection Process

We want to ensure an engaging and diverse audience. We aim to select a diverse group of 150 participants. The selection will be based on multiple criteria such as experience, institution affiliation, geographical location, gender. The selection process will be based on the submitted material and will be executed by a diversified committee of trusted experts.

Target Audience

Everyone is welcome: PhD students, exceptionally advanced MSc or BSc students, experienced researchers (postdocs, faculty or industry members), engineers and other practitioners from industry, and also hobbyists.

We expect from the participants experience with programming in Python, experience in machine learning, and at least a basic but sound knowledge of calculus, linear algebra, probability theory and statistics.

Registration Fee

The registration fee includes all courses, coffee breaks, lunches and banquet.

  • Students (including PhD) → 2500 NOK ~ 225 EUR
  • Academia → 5000 NOK ~ 450 EUR
  • Industry → 10000 NOK ~ 900 EUR


If the registration fee or travel costs may prevent you from attending the school, you can apply for the scholarship. We can offer only a limited number of scholarships aimed for applicants from developing countries and under-represented groups.

PhD Course with ECTS Credits

The ProbAI school has been registered as a PhD course (at NTNU) awarded with 7.5 ECTS credit points.

Additionally to attending the lectures and tutorials at ProbAI and as the mean of examination, a PhD course registrant must submit a solution to a project assignment. The submission shall consist of well-commented source code together with a written report documenting the process leading to the solution. The written examination will not require you to stay in Norway. The submission will be evaluated and graded with passed or failed.

Accepted PhD students will receive instructions for registering for the PhD course. In this process, all non-NTNU students will need to document that they are admitted to a PhD program at their home institution.

Invitation Letters for Visa

Invitation letters will be issued only to attendees, i.e. after they have been accepted and registered.
