UPDATED: The III International School on Classification and Data Analysis supported by the IASC-ERS had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Italy. The school is now scheduled to take place from 26 to 30 October 2020 at the Lake Como School of Advanced Studies (Como, Italy).
The III International School on Classification and Data Analysis, organized by the

It is intended for Ph.D. Students, M.S. Students, Post-Docs, Young and Junior researchers.
Robust statistics is at the forefront of statistical research, and a central topic in multidisciplinary
science where mathematical ideas are used to model and understand the real world, without
being affected by contamination that could occur in the data.
Nowadays, with the increasing availability of Big data, robust statistical methods are crucially
The aim of this course is three-fold: present novel models to describe real-world phenomena,
and their properties; study their behavior under different kinds of contamination; discuss their
implementation through computational methods.
The lecturers are amongst the most influential scholars in the field:
– Anthony Atkinson, London, School of Economics, UK
– Agustin Mayo-Iscar, University of Valladolid, ES
– Marco Riani, University of Parma, IT
– Anna Maria Paganoni, Politecnico di Milano, IT
The school is organized by the Classification and Data Analysis Group of the Italian Statistical
Society under the auspices of the European Regional Section (ERS) of the International
Association for Statistical Computing (IASC).
Please note that the conference room allows only for a very limited number of participants (no
more than 30). The registration deadline is March 4, 2020.
