The Bocconi Summer School in Advanced Statistics and Probability is 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.

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.

Since 2021, the school is organized in collaboration with the University of Oxford and Imperial College, London, and is held in alternating years in the UK and in Como.
The 2024 edition of the school is held at Villa del Grumello, Como, on July 8-18, 2024.

The summer school is co-sponsored by the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS).

The topic of the 2024 edition is Statistical science for understanding climate and the Earth system and the main instructors are Claudia Tebaldi (Senior Science Advisor, Climate Central , USA) and Douglas Nychka (Dept of Applied Mathematis and Statistics, Colorado Schoof of Mines, Golden, Colorado, USA)

Up to two Awards, covering the registration fee, will be conferred by the Bocconi Institute of Data Science (BIDSA) to outstanding applicants.
