Welcome to CLADAG 2017!

The vibrant city of Milan and its Universities will celebrate 20 years of CLADAG meetings.

The CLAssification and Data Analysis Group (CLADAG) of the Italian Statistical Society (SIS) promotes advanced methodological research in multivariate statistics with a special vocation in Data Analysis and Classification. CLADAG supports the interchange of ideas in these fields of research, including the dissemination of concepts, numerical methods, algorithms, computational and applied results.

CLADAG is a member of the International Federation of Classification Societies (IFCS). Among its activities, CLADAG organizes a biennial international scientific meeting, schools related to classification and data analysis, publishes a newsletter, and cooperates with other member societies of the IFCS to the organization of their conferences. Founded in 1985, the IFCS is a federation of national, regional, and linguistically-based classification societies. It is a non-profit, nonpolitical scientific organization, whose aims are to further classification research.

The 11th Scientific Meeting of the CLAssification and Data Analysis Group of the Italian Statistical Society will take place under the auspices of the International Federation of Classification Societies and of the Italian Statistical Society.
