KEPACoffee (name from the group acronym KEPACO and coffee, obviously :)) is the regular group event of the KEPACO group. The idea is to informally discuss matters of the group and research over coffee/tea, and most importantly "pulla" - which literally means a certain type of bakery product, but what *we* mean is anything sweet that you can enjoy over coffee/tea, cakes/pies/cupcakes/icecream/chocolate/ etc.

How this works is that every meeting is nominated a responsible person, for

The journal club papers may be picked from among recent publications (2016-) in the top venues in machine learning and computational biology: JMLR, Machine learning journal, NIPS, ICML, ECML/PKDD, Bioinformatics journal, PLoS Computational Biology. Also very top biological journals are possible (see. list of high impact journals)

Schedule Spring 2019

Below is a schedule for the Spring 2019. If you cannot make it to your own session, please swap places with another group member.

All meetings will be in meeting room A142 on Wednesday from 4-6PM unless otherwise announced.
