DeepLearn 2022 Summer

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain

July 25-29, 2022


Co-organized by:

University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

Institute for Research Development, Training and Advice – IRDTA



Early registration: December 11, 2021



DeepLearn 2022 Summer will be a research training event with a global scope aiming at updating participants on the most recent advances in the critical and fast developing area of deep learning. Previous events were held in Bilbao, Genova, Warsaw, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Bournemouth, and Guimarães.

Deep learning is a branch of artificial intelligence covering a spectrum of current frontier research and industrial innovation that provides more efficient algorithms to deal with large-scale data in a huge variety of environments: computer vision, neurosciences, speech recognition, language processing, human-computer interaction, drug discovery, biomedical informatics, image analysis, recommender systems, advertising, fraud detection, robotics, games, finance, biotechnology, physics experiments, biometrics, communications, climate sciences, etc. etc. Renowned academics and industry pioneers will lecture and share their views with the audience.

Most deep learning subareas will be displayed, and main challenges identified through 24 four-hour and a half courses and 3 keynote lectures, which will tackle the most active and promising topics. The organizers are convinced that outstanding speakers will attract the brightest and most motivated students. Face to face interaction and networking will be main ingredients of the event. It will be also possible to fully participate in vivo remotely.

An open session will give participants the opportunity to present their own work in progress in 5 minutes. Moreover, there will be two special sessions with industrial and recruitment profiles.


Graduate students, postgraduate students and industry practitioners will be typical profiles of participants. However, there are no formal pre-requisites for attendance in terms of academic degrees, so people less or more advanced in their career will be welcome as well. Since there will be a variety of levels, specific knowledge background may be assumed for some of the courses. Overall, DeepLearn 2022 Summer is addressed to students, researchers and practitioners who want to keep themselves updated about recent developments and future trends. All will surely find it fruitful to listen to and discuss with major researchers, industry leaders and innovators.


DeepLearn 2022 Summer will take place in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, on the Atlantic Ocean, with a mild climate throughout the year, sandy beaches and a renowned carnival. The venue will be:

Institución Ferial de Canarias

Avenida de la Feria, 1

35012 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria


3 courses will run in parallel during the whole event. Participants will be able to freely choose the courses they wish to attend as well as to move from one to another.

Full live online participation will be possible. However, the organizers highlight the importance of face to face interaction and networking in this kind of research training event.

It has to be done at

The selection of 8 courses requested in the registration template is only tentative and non-binding. For the sake of organization, it will be helpful to have an estimation of the respective demand for each course. During the event, participants will be free to attend the courses they wish.

Since the capacity of the venue is limited, registration requests will be processed on a first come first served basis. The registration period will be closed and the on-line registration tool disabled when the capacity of the venue will have got exhausted. It is highly recommended to register prior to the event.


Fees comprise access to all courses and lunches. There are several early registration deadlines. Fees depend on the registration deadline. The fees for on site and for online participation are the same.


Accommodation suggestions will be available in due time at


A certificate of successful participation in the event will be delivered indicating the number of hours of lectures.
