Dear Sir,

I am attaching information about a Summerschool on Data Analysis. If you
find it of interest for the Visionlist , could you, please, post this message in the corresponding distribution list?

Thanks in advance, Carlos Oscar



Dear colleagues,

San Pablo - CEU University in collaboration with other five universities (Málaga,
Politécnica de Madrid, País Vasco, Complutense, and Castilla La Mancha), SPSS, CSIC and IEEE
organizes a summerschool on "Advanced Data Analysis and Modeling" in Madrid between July
9th and July 27th. The summerschool comprises 12 courses divided in 3 modules.
Attendees may register in each course independently. Registration will be considered upon
strict arrival order.For more information, please, visit
