The Departments of Statistics and Computer Science at Purdue University, with help from Discovery Park at Purdue University, hosted a Machine Learning Summer School (MLSS) from the 13th of June to the 24th of June 2011. Over 130 participants from all over the world attended. A majority of the participants were graduate students, but a number of undergraduates, post-doctoral fellows, and industry personnel also were in attendance.

The school featured a number of tutorial style lectures by international experts. The students were also exposed to various application areas of machine learning via short application overview talks. In addition to lectures, the participants got a chance to apply their knowledge during hands-on laboratory sessions. The school also featured a number of social events including a trip to Chicago and an end of school party. Women researchers got a unique opportunity to receive mentoring via a Women in MLSS dinner.
