1st Edition of the School in
Machine Learning of
Dynamic Processes and Time Series Analysis
26-27 NOVEMBER , 2020
Scuola Normale Superiore
The aim of the School is to present recent developments in Machine Learning focusing on data-driven approaches to statistical learning and dynamical systems. Applications will also be discussed, such as the forecasting of financial time series.
The School provides 4 lectures by:
Christa Cuchiero, University of Vienna.
Lyudmila Grigoryeva, University of Konstanz.
Juan-Pablo Ortega, University of St. Gallen and CNRS.
Josef Teichmann, ETH Zurich.
In addition, it provides a limited number of contributed talks.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING THE Covid-19
Due to the current worldwide situation due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the School can be attended either in presence or in on-line mode. More precisely:
Personal participation will only take place if the highest possible health safety can be guaranteed. Therefore, we might have to consider a constraint in the number of admitted participants in presence, because of the limited capacity of lecture halls.
However, for the time being we shall wait and monitor events and measures to get a clear picture of how the situation might look at the end of November: a final decision for participation in presence will be communicated at the mid of October.
In case a participant will cannot take part to the School because of unexpected events related to Covid-19, such as sudden transport limitations, the on-line mode will be always available.
We gratefully acknowledge the contribution of various sponsors for financial support. In particular, the School is supported by:
The scheme 'INFRAIA-01-2018-2019: Research and Innovation action', Grant Agreement n. 871042 'SoBigData++: European Integrated Infrastructure for Social Mining and Big Data Analytics'. www.sobigdata.eu.

GETTING TO PISA
The Airport of Pisa (Galileo Galilei International Airport) is near the city center, and it is served by major airlines with flights from Milan, Rome, London, Paris and many other Italian, European and international cities.
The Florence Airport (Firenze-Peretola Airport) is the next closest airport to the city of Pisa; it also has numerous connection to Italian, European and international cities. It is linked to the central train station (Santa Maria Novella) of Florence by shuttle buses and by train to Pisa. These trains leave approximately every twenty minutes. It takes about an hour to travel from Florence to Pisa.
Other possible airports that may be convenient are those of Rome (ADR).
GETTING TO THE SCUOLA NORMALE SUPERIORE
By bus. Scuola Normale can be reached from the Pisa Airport using city buses (Compagnia Toscana Trasporti): take the LAM rossa (red) bus, which directly connects the airport with the city centre.
The “via Fermi” stop is the nearest to Scuola Normale.
By taxi. You can also take a taxi (CoTaPi); the trip from the airport to the Scuola Normale costs about €10. Tel.: (+39)050541600.
By train. The main station is “Pisa Centrale”, located in the city centre about 1 km from the Scuola Normale. Pisa is connected with all main European cities by train through Florence, Turin, Genoa or Rome (Trenitalia).
