Application process
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Applications are invited from graduate students, postdoctoral researchers
and industry professionals looking to use, or already using machine
learning methods in their work. This includes researchers in applied
fields as well as students of machine learning itself. Prior experience
is not strictly required, but helpful. A small number of travel stipends
will be available.

Applicants will be asked to submit a CV, a cover letter of up to 2000
characters, and a short letter of recommendation from one referee of their
choice. We are also seeking to give participants a chance to discuss their
own work with their peers and the speakers. Each applicant is thus invited
to provide the title of a poster they would like to present at the school.
