Apply for Artificial Intelligence for Earth System Science (AI4ESS) Summer School

The Artificial Intelligence for Earth System Science (AI4ESS) Summer School is now accepting applications.

Who Should Apply

We encourage graduate students, postdocs, faculty, research scientists, software engineers, and data scientists focused on Earth System Science to apply. Previous machine learning experience is not required. Some experience with Python and scientific Python libraries will be needed to contribute to the breakout sessions.

Application Process

We have room for up to 80 participants but are expecting interest to exceed capacity. In order to ensure that the applicants who could most benefit from course can attend, we have a formal application and review process for the summer school.

To apply, please fill out the application form. Applications are due by Friday, January 31, 2020, at 5 PM Mountain Time. Acceptance notifications will be sent out in early March, and those selected will be invited to register. A waiting list will also be created in the event that some participants are not able to attend.


This event will take place the week of June 22-26, 2020 at NCAR's Mesa Laboratory Main Seminar Room. 

Announcement Timing: 
Tuesday, December 17, 2019 to Friday, January 31, 2020
