Interdisciplinary hands-on workshop “Machine Learning” for young scientists from the fields of matter, modelling and life sciences (March 19 + 20, 2024)

Around 60 post-docs and doctoral students from the transdisciplinary research areas “Matter”, “Modelling”, “Life and Health” and the “Bonner Forum Biomedizin” (BFB) took part in this year's interdisciplinary hands-on workshop “Machine Learning”. At the two-day workshop, early career scientists gained insights into machine learning and its theoretical concepts in various ways. Following a basic lecture in three parts by Prof. Dr. Bauckhage, all participants had the opportunity to try out what they had learned in practical application exercises. On the second day, lectures provided insights on the application of “Physics-informed Neural Networks” (PINN) to model gene regulation in stem cells (Dr. Maria Mircea), the use of generative AI models for physical questions (Dr. Kim Nicoli) and the Use of “Active Learning” for behavior analysis in neuroscience (Dr. Jens Tillmann). The event ended with a small networking session in which the participants were able to exchange information about their research and what they had learned during these two days of workshop.

We would like to thank the excellent speakers and dedicated tutors for their contribution to the success of this workshop!

Networking Event with CESOC

What? Jointly organized Networking Event with CESOC on July 8, 2022; starting at 5p.m.; location: Campus Poppelsdorf (Hörsaalzentrum/INS)

The Center for Earth System Observation and Computational Analysis (CESOC) and the TRA Modelling would like to invite you to an In-Person Networking Event in Bonn on Friday, 8 July 2022 at 17:00 CEST a seminar talk is given by Prof. Jan-Henrik Haunert on: "Combinatorial Optimization in Cartography and Geographical Information Science"
on Campus Poppelsdorf, Hörsaalzentrum (CP1-HSZ) in lecture hall (Hörsaal) 7, Endenicher Allee 19C, 53115 Bonn

From 18:00 CEST onwards snacks and drinks are organized to have a nice get-together and networking In-Person in front of Institute for Numerical Simulation (INS),
Friedrich-Hirzebruch-Allee 7, 53115 Bonn (just next to the Hörsaalzentrum)

Everyone who feels part of CESOC or the TRA Modelling or would like to get to know more about each or both is cordially invited to join for the talk and the get-together. Please share with interested people.

 Microfluencers Symposium

 The Institute of Microbiology and Biotechnology  turns 50 this year! An ideal occasion to celebrate microbiological research with a scientific symposium themed "Microfluencers: from small organisms to global impact".

Interdisciplinary speakers from biology and physics will shed light on various important aspects of how microbial influencers shape our world. How can we address global problems such as climate change and antibiotic resistance or worldwide challenges such as global health and nutrition? The talks are tailored to an interdisciplinary audience and start at a lay scientific level and end with the latest results for experts.

PreDinner Series 2021

© TRA 1

The TRA 1 Modelling PreDinner Series has been established to inform members about funded projects and ongoing research as well as to promote and facilitate collaboration and networking within the TRA.

Instead of a hard-to-schedule full-day workshop, we opt for a weekly "PreDinner" format: after finishing your duties of the day, meet us for a casual research talk before dinner starts – in other words: at PreDinner-time.

This year we have a mix of talks from funded projects and other TRA-affiliated researchers to meet.

Symposium on Interdisciplinary Research in Mathematics and Life Science

It was a great pleasure to host the one-day ‘Symposium on Interdisciplinary Research in Mathematics and Life Sciences’, which was held in the Hörsaalzentrum of the University of Bonn and online on Monday, August 30, 2021.

The symposium was jointly organized by the Clusters of Excellence Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM) and ImmunoSensation2 as well as the Transdisciplinary Research Areas TRA Mathematics, Modelling and Simulation of Complex Systems and TRA Life and Health aims to provide an overview of the respective and partially very new research activities in this field. 

Please check for further information.
