The Advanced Course is not a summer school suited only for younger
scholars. Rather, a significant proportion of seasoned investigators are
regularly present among the attendees, often senior faculty at their own
institutions. The balanced audience that we strive to maintain in each
Advanced Course greatly contributes to the development of intense
cross-disciplinary debates among faculty and participants that typically
address the most advanced and emerging areas of each topic.
Each faculty member presents lectures and discusses with the participants
for one entire day. Such long interaction together with the small,
exclusive Course size provides the uncommon opportunity to fully explore
the expertise of each faculty, often through one-to-one mentoring. This is
unparalleled and priceless.
The Certosa di Pontignano provides the perfect setting to a relaxed yet
intense learning atmosphere, with the stunning backdrop of the Tuscan
landscapes. World-class wines and traditional foods will make the Advanced
Course on Data Science and Machine Learning the experience of a lifetime.

Participants will be delivered a certificate of attendance indicating the
