Online Machine Learning School 2023 - Europe#

nmss logo 2023

Once again Prof. Nikolaos Koutsouleris and his team, together with the ECNP Neuroimaging Network, are organizing the Online Machine Learning School that aims to introduce participants to machine learning with a focus on psychiatric neuroimaging. We have successfully run the highly-rated school over the past few years and it has been very well attended by people across Europe, the US, Africa and Asia. This year, the machine learning school will be held September 25-29, 2023.


People with all levels of machine learning experience are encouraged to apply because you do not need coding experience to implement the cutting-edge machine learning techniques we teach. The course is specifically designed for clinician scientists, PhD students and early career researchers.

Registration is now closed. To discuss whether late registration is still possible, reach out to

Asia-Pacific Time

If you are interested in our program but are unable to attend due to the time difference, there is also a parallel event offered by colleagues at Orygen, Melbourne, Australia. For more information and tickets, visit Online Machine Learning School - Asia Pacific.

Organized by#

The school is supported by the Section for Precision Psychiatry (LMU Klinikum), the Max Planck Fellow Group for Precision Psychiatry, the ECNP, and ECNP Neuroimaging Network, along with University of Melbourne, and Orygen.

When and how long is the online school?

The Online Machine Learning School will run from September 25 - 29, 2023. Lectures, seminars and tutorials will run from 9:30 - 5:00 daily

What is the difference between the full course and the free course?

The full course includes expert lectures, seminars, and tutorials. During the tutorials in small groups knowledge of ML concepts are further deepened and an introduction to the functionalities of NeuroMiner are given. Registering for the free course lets you participate in the expert lectures and seminars only.

Are there any differences between the European and Asia-Pacific schools?

The European and Asia-Pacific schools each have their own panel of expert guest speakers from the Machine Learning field. However, regardless of if you are attending the European or Asia-Pacific school, you will have access to ALL lectures and seminars, as these sessions will be recorded and shared.

What is NeuroMiner?

Neurominer is a free software developed to facilitate research into better tools for precision medicine, able to perform multiple kinds of Machine Learning analyses. Neurominer requires no coding experience.

How do I download NeuroMiner?

Matlab R2023a is required in order to run Neurominer. A free 30-day trial can be downloaded from the MathWorks website. Neurominer can be downloaded from neurominer-git. Please ensure you download the latest version.

Will I get a certificate of completion?

A certificate will be issued upon successful participation in the tutorials and final competition after the summer school.
