The summer school consists of 12 separate courses, each of them week-long and composed of 15 lecture hours. There are six courses in each of the two weeks of the summer school. The courses are intensive and aim to introduce both the theoretical foundations and the practical applications of modern statistical analysis techniques. The students are free to choose the courses according to their interests, with the only restriction being that courses which are given in the same time block (e.g. C01 and C02; C03 and C04;...) are mutually exclusive.
The primary goal of the summer school is to complement the technical background of attendees in the field of data analysis and modelling. The courses are open to any student or professional wanting to enrich her knowledge of a topic that is more and more involved in nearly all productive areas (Computer Science, Engineering, Pharmacy, Medicine, Economics, Statistics, etc.).
A second objective is to get the student acquainted with a set of computational tools for applying the learned techniques. This may involve tackling practical problems from the student's own work environment, i.e., working with a student's own data set.
