1st International Summer School on Classification and Data Analysis

The “Clustering and Classification” summer school – organised by the CLADAG (the classification group of the Italian Statistical Society) – is designed to introduce clustering and classification methods to advanced undergraduate students, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers. The Summer School is structured in theoretical lessons, tutorials and invited talks on specific themes. Each day will consist on theoretical lectures in the morning, and interactive discussions, scientific seminars and tutorials in the afternoon.
