Danilo Benozzo attended UAI 2015 Workshop on Advances in Causal Inference in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The workshop took place immediately after the 31st Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (UAI 2015).

Causal inference in statistics and machine learning has advanced rapidly in the last 20 years, leading to a plethora of new methods, both for causal structure learning and for making causal predictions (i.e., predicting what happens under interventions). The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers interested in the challenges of causal inference from observational and interventional data. This year's focus was on causal inference for less standard data and generative models, such as point processes, relational structures and social networks.
