Chicago Summer School/Workshop on Theory and Practice of Computational Learning

Dear Everyone,

We would like to remind you about the upcoming Machine Learning Summer School and Workshop on Theory and Practice of Computational Learning in Chicago. As you recall, the summer school workshop will be held from June 1 to June 11 at the University of Chicago. At this point we would like to ask you to let your students, colleagues and anyone else who may be interested know about this event. In particular, we think that the summer school will be a great opportunity for graduate students and researchers from other fields to be introduced to a broad range of subjects in data analysis, machine learning, geometry of data and applications, while the workshops will let the participants learn about the most recent research in these fields.

The workshop will be held in the afternoon and in the morning there will be a full program of tutorial talks on topics including

Foundations of Statistical Learning
Kernel Methods and Support Vector Machines
Semi-supervised and Active Learning
Boosting and Ensemble methods
Compressed Sensing and Sparse representations
Manifold Methods and Geometry of Point Clouds
Graphical Models
Machine Learning in Computer Vision, Speech, Text and Natural Language Processing
Learning in Neuroscience and Human-Computer Interaction
