Dear colleagues,

We would like to remind you that early registration for the Madrid UPM Machine Learning and Advanced Statistics summer school finishes on May, 26th (included). 

The summer school will be held in Boadilla del Monte, near Madrid, from June 19th to June 30th. This year's edition comprises 12 week-long courses (15 lecture hours each), given during two weeks (six courses each week). Attendees may register in each course independently. No restrictions, besides those imposed by timetables, apply on the number or choice of courses.

Early registration is *OPEN*. Extended information on course programmes, price, venue, accommodation and transport is available at the school's website:

There is a 25% discount for members of Spanish AEPIA and SEIO societies.  

Please, forward this information to your colleagues, students, and whomever you think may find it interesting.

Best regards,

Pedro Larrañaga, Concha Bielza, Bojan Mihaljević and Laura Gonzalez Veiga.
-- School coordinators.
