Organisation (2021 edition)

WeADL 2021 was jointly organised by the MLyRE research group on Machine Learning, Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, Babeș-Bolyai University together with the Romanian National Meteorological Administration and Meteorologisk Institutt Norway.

Research group on Machine Learning

MLyRE is a research group on machine learning at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, Babeș-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The group focuses on fundamental, applicative and interdisciplinary research on machine learning. Research focuses on pure theoretical and algorithmic contributions to machine learning (supervised, unsupervised, reinforcement learning, relational association rule mining, hybrid models) as well as on interdisciplinary applications of machine learning in various domains, like software engineering, bioinformatics and computational biology, bio-archaeology, computer vision, natural language processing, social media, etc.

The Babeș-Bolyai University (UBB) has become in time an emblem of success for Cluj and the entire country. It is a dynamic and constructive institution well integrated into society and oriented towards future, a future which it can design, prepare and build. An institution that can only be conceived within the framework that consecrated it, that of the universitas magistrorum et scholarium (“community of magistrates and disciples”), of the community of teachers and students, of the “corporation of equals” with an exclusive preoccupation for innovation and knowledge.

Founded in the XVI-th century, UBB has become a leading university not only in Romania, but in the whole region, with 21 faculties and over 40,000 students. Ranked largest university in Eastern and Central Europe (in number of students), and ranked first in Romania for academic and scientific performance, is proud about its history, its people and its multicultural mission.
