The workshop on "Challenging problems in Statistical Learning" will be held in Paris on January 28-29, 2010. This workshop aims to summarize the new and future problems in statistical learning and to give a good idea of what already exists for dealing with these problems. This event is co-organized by the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and INRIA Saclay - Ile de France.
