    In order to make full use of the potential of your data, this seminar teaches essential methods of data preparation. Based on a concrete production use case, data is prepared in hands-on sessions to gain knowledge of how to achieve high data quality. Thus, the necessary steps to achieve high data quality consisting of integrating, handling missing data and outliers, scaling features, encoding data, reducing dimensions and sampling data are discussed and implemented.

    Polymer Replication on Nanoscale

    The 9th International Conference "Polymer Replication on Nanoscale" (PRN) will again take place in Aachen, Germany, on June 1 and 2, 2023! The conference series, which has already been hosted since 2023 at alternating research locations in Denmark, Switzerland and Germany, focuses on methods for more efficient production of functional nanostructured surfaces and presents possible solutions. The program includes plenary lectures by invited keynote speakers as well as a number of scientific contributions and posters determined by the call-for-paper selection process. The two-day event will be framed by a social program of guided tours and an evening networking event.
