Important: Please, to profit the most from the tutorials, we ask you to take into account the information provided in the following page :: Tutorial software information.

The ADA8 2016 Summer School will comprise two days of hands-on tutorials and half a day of contributed talks. Topics include Bayesian methods, Sparsity-based analysis, Python and R for statistical analysis of astronomical data, Compressed sensing concepts, Machine Learning and Astroinformatics.

The Summer School will be held in the two days and the morning just before the COSMO21 2016 conference, at the same venue. The ADA8 2016 Summer School will include two keynote talks and a small oral presentation session with slots for six contributed talks (15+5 minutes each).
