Working Group on Model-Based Clustering Summer Session: Glasgow, July 17-23, 2011

The 18th Summer Working Group on Model-Based Clustering will be held in University of Glasgow from July 17-23, 2011. The sessions will be at the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Glasgow, and accomodation will be available at locations close to the campus; accommodation details are available at this link. The organizing committee this year consists of Gilles Celeux, Nema Dean, Brendan Murphy, Rebecca Nugent and Adrian Raftery.

It will start with an opening social event on Sunday July 17, sessions in the mornings Monday-Friday July 18-22, and a hike on Saturday July 23.
