Working Group on Model-Based Clustering Summer Session: Bologna, July 21-27, 2013

The 20th Summer Working Group on Model-Based Clustering will be held in Università Di Bologna from July 21-27, 2013. The sessions will be at the Department of Statistical Sciences at the Università Di Bologna, and accomodation will be available close to the campus; accommodation and travel details are available at this link. The organizing committee this year consists of Gilles Celeux, Brendan Murphy, Cinzia Viroli, Angela Montanari and Adrian Raftery.

It will start with an opening social event on Sunday July 21, sessions in the mornings Monday-Friday July 22-26, and a hike on Saturday July 27.
