  • The solution will be evaluated and graded with passed or failed.

The PhD course is registered at NTNU as “Probabilistic Artificial Intelligence” with the code DT8122.

Poster Session

The poster stand dimensions are 107 x 147 cm. Therefore, the recommended poster format is vertical (portait) A0 (84.1 x 118.9 cm). Posters in horizontal (landscape) A0 format can not be incorporated. Alternatively, posters in A1 can be incorporated both in vertical and horizontal format.

The ProbAI school does not offer printing services, hence each presenter must bring a printed poster.

Self-Study Recommendations

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. See the recommended curriculum to gain most out of ProbAI 2022.

Code of Conduct

The ProbAI school aims to be and to promote an environment of diversity, inclusion, openness, collaboration, and knowledge sharing.

To reach those goals together, the ProbAI team has created the following Code of Conduct, that is expected to be complied with by all participants (attendees, lecturers, organizers, helpers and others). We therefore expect the following from all participants:

  • Be welcoming and supportive. People of different backgrounds and identities are welcome and supported.
  • Be respectful and keep a good tone. Communicate thoughtfully and listen to the other participants. Be open to other participants’ thoughts and be aware of personal biases.
  • Collaborate and share knowledge. Everyone at the school has different skills and levels of experience. Engage and learn from the other participants. Share your own knowledge and help out other participants.
  • Respect personal boundaries. We do not accept harassment, violence, behavior of sexual or discriminatory nature, and other offensive behavior.

This code is not exhaustive and serves to capture a broader understanding of a healthy and safe collaborative environment.
