Working Group on Model-Based Clustering Summer Session: Dublin, July 20-26, 2014

The 21st Summer Working Group on Model-Based Clustering will be held in University College Dublin from July 20-26, 2014. The sessions will be at the School of Mathematical Sciences in University College Dublin, and accomodation will be available on campus; accommodation and travel details will be available at this link. The organizing committee this year consists of Gilles Celeux, Nial Friel, Claire Gormley, Brendan Murphy, and Adrian Raftery.

It will start with an opening social event on Sunday July 20, sessions in the mornings Monday-Friday July 21-25, and a hike on Saturday July 26.
