Hausdorff School Algorithmic Data Analysis

Dates: June 15 - 19, 2020

Venue: Lipschitz Lecture Hall, Mathematics Center, Endenicher Allee 60

Organizers: Anne Driemel, Melanie Schmidt

Confirmed lecturers:

  • Ken Clarkson (IBM Research, US)
  • Ioannis Emiris (University of Athens, Greece)

In this Hausdorff school we study algorithmic aspects of foundational methods to learn and generalise from data. While the nexus is algorithmic, this area of research is a rich and vibrant field within theoretical computer science which draws from deep connections to statistics, geometry, and combinatorics.

This Hausdorff School is intended for motivated graduate or postdoctoral students of mathematics or computer science. Leading experts discuss geometric and probabilistic approximation techniques and their connections to learning theory. Each invited speaker gives a mini-course spanning three lectures ranging from introductory material to advanced topics and current research.

The schedule will be announced in due time.
