Working Group on Model-Based Clustering Summer Session: Grenoble, July 18-24, 2010

The 17th Summer Working Group on Model-Based Clustering will be held in Grenoble, July 18-24, 2010. The sessions will be at the Institut National De Recherche En Informatique Et En Automatique Grenoble Rhône-Alpes (INRIA), and accomodation will be at the ResidHotel Grenette in the centre of Grenoble. The organizing committee this year consists of Gilles Celeux, Florence Forbes, Brendan Murphy and Adrian Raftery.

It will start with an opening social event on Sunday July 18, sessions in the mornings Monday-Friday July 19-23, and a hike on Saturday July 24.
