Dear ORBel researchers,

Registration for the ACP Summer School on "Machine Learning for Constraint Solving", 10 to 14 July 2023, is still open!

The summer school will have a mix of talks and hands-on lab sessions, given by experts in the integration of ML and constraint solving: Hendrik Blockeel, Quentin Cappart, Ferdinando Fioretto, Tias Guns, Elias Khalil, Wouter Kool, Lars Kotthoff, Michele Lombardi, Dimos Tsouros and Yingqian Zhang

Topics range from introductory sessions to sessions on automated tuning, prediction-based solving, reinforcement learning for branching and solution approximation, decision-focused learning, constraint acquisition and more. Only basic ML/constraint knowledge required to participate.

There will also be a poster session for participants to present their own work, and a small-groups hackathon to experiment and get feedback on integrations that you care about.

Registration fees are purposefully kept low for PhD students:
- PhD student *with* shared accommodation: 430 euro for the 5 days  (closes on June 1)
- PhD student, no accommodation: 250 euro
- Regular (non-PhD) registration: 450 euro
- KU Leuven ADS members: free (Arenberg Doctoral School event)

The summer school will have both included and optional social activities.

Looking forward to welcoming you,
Prof. Tias Guns and team

[please forward to your PhD students and others that might be interested!]
