Bocconi Summer School in Advanced Statistics and Probability

The aim of the Bocconi Summer School in Advanced Statistics and Probability is to establish a track of high level courses on advanced and cutting-edge topics in Statistics and Probability.
The Summer School offers lectures delivered by internationally leading scholars on the specific designated topic, and supervised tutorials.

The Summer School is offered by Bocconi University and hosted by the Lake Como School of Advanced Studies at Villa del Grumello, on the shores of the Lake of Como, usually in July.

The School continues the tradition of the Summer Schools in Statistics and Probability that Università Bocconi had been organizing since the early '90s, and held in Torgnon, Val d'Aosta, until 2008.

From 2021, the Summer School is jointly offered and organized by Bocconi University in collaboration with the University of Oxford and Imperial College, London within the Centre for Doctoral Training in Modern Statistics and Statistical Machine Learning (StatML CDT), and it is held in alternating years in Italy and in the UK.

The 2024 edition on Statistical science for understanding climate and the Earth system is organized by Bocconi, in collaboration with the StatML CDT. It will be held at Villa del Grumello, Lake of Como, from 8 to 18 July 2024. The summer school is supported by the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS). 

The Summer School is designed for PhD students, and possibly brilliant MSc graduates / final-year students interested in pursuing doctoral studies in Statistics, Probability, Data Science and AI, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Operation Research and related areas.
