This was the second workshop of a New series of computational skills workshops. This workshop series is jointly organized by The Netherlands eScience Center and SURF. Through these workshops, the eScience center and SURF inform and inspire researchers about the use of best practices in scientific software development as well as efficient use of cutting-edge computing systems.

This workshop showed the potential benefits of machine learning applied to research. And also how machine learning methods can be an integral part of a software project.
