Working Group on Model-Based Clustering Summer Session: Seattle, July 19-25, 2015

The 22nd Summer Working Group on Model-Based Clustering will be held in University of Washington from July 19-25, 2015. The sessions will be in Room 409, Savery Hall in University of Washington, and accomodation will be available on campus. The organizing committee this year consists of Charles Bouveyron, Gilles Celeux, Brendan Murphy, Adrian Raftery, Luca Scrucca and Naisyin Wang.

It will start with an opening social event on Sunday July 19, sessions in the mornings Monday-Friday July 20-24, and a hike on Saturday July 25.
