DataLearning working group



DataLearning is an interdisciplinary working group of researchers and students developing new technologies based on Data Assimilation and Machine Learning. DataLearning came out of the idea to couple and integrate Data Assimilation with Machine Learning technologies in order to exploit the best features of both.

The group fosters effective communication between scientists coming from different scientific disciplines and departments at Imperial College London and other institutions. DataLearning focuses on discussion and activity about Data Assimilation with/and/or Machine Learning. It is important for each scientist to learn about achievements of colleagues to tackle complex scientific problems.

In addition to regular meetings, we organise scientific seminars and workshops, where both experienced scientists and early stage researchers with different backgrounds will share their ideas and coordinate their efforts on relevant subjects. The exchange scheme welcomes students at all levels. Arrangements will be made for joint supervision of MSc and PhD students by the collaborating supervisors.

The 3rd MLDADS 2021 workshop,  part of the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS), will be held in Kraków, Poland, from the 16th-18th June 2021. Join us!!!  The call for papers is open until 18th December, for further information and  how to register please visit :

Due to COVID-19 the 2nd MLDADS 2020 workshop, part of the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS) to be held in Amsterdam 3-5 June 2020 has been cancelled. After some consideration, and due to the different time zones of all the speakers worldwide, it was decided to arrange a recorded version of the workshop. You can view the recorded version of the  2nd MLDADS 2020 workshop on YouTube: . 

The 1st MLDADS workshop was part of the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS)
held in Faro, Portugal 12-14 June 2019. For further information
