Deepak Agarwal of Yahoo Research is organizing a summer program on Computational Advertising. It appears to be geared for grad students.http://www.samsi.info/programs/summer-program-august-6-17-2012-computational-advertising
This two-week program will run from August 6 to August 17, 2012. The first week will be at the Radisson RTP in the Research Triangle Park, NC. The location is in close proximity to SAMSI. The first three days will be spent on technical presentations by leading researchers and industry experts, to bring everyone up to speed on the currently used methodology. On the fourth day, the participants will self-organize into working groups, each of which will address one of the key problem areas (it is permitted that people join more than one group, and the organizers will try to arrange the working group schedules to faciliate that). The second week will be spent at SAMSI headquarters in Research Triangle Park.
