As a CREWES industry sponsor representative, we hope that you are planning to attend our annual CREWES Sponsor Meeting which is being held November 28 to November 30.

The technical program is now available, please see link below. Please note that this program may undergo some slight revisions between now and the Sponsor's Meeting.

SHORT COURSE: "Ideas, Algorithms, and Applications of Machine Learning in Geophysics"

This year rather than holding 3 short courses on different subjects, we are going to try something a little different. Throughout 2018 CREWES postdoctoral fellows and students have been leading a Machine Learning working group, meeting biweekly to summarize their research and experiences involving the latest machine learning and data analytics tools. Distilled from their experiences, this year on the Saturday after the Sponsor's Meeting, four of our postdocs will lead a 1-day short course designed to introduce you to and/or refine your skills with current Machine Learning methods as applied to geophysics problems. A hands-on, practical experience is planned.
