We are pleased to announce the 1st Italian Astrostatistics School that will be held at INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Brera, Milano from 12 to 16 June 2017.
The primary goal of the school is to train astronomers to the use of modern statistical techniques, specifically parameter estimation and model selection. The INTENSIVE course, lectured by Stefano Andreon and Roberto Trotta, is characterized by extended laboratory sessions (i.e. individual work at the computer), taking about two thirds of the school attendance. The capacity is limited to 35 participants (first come first served
basis). The school is open to PhD students in astronomy, who have priority (they should register by May 15th), and if space allows, to post-docs and researchers. From May 15th, registration is open to all (subject to availability). Attendance to the course has pre-requirements. For school program, details, and registration see:
