MLSS Taipei 2006 is the 2006 version of the "Machine Learning Summer School" series held previously in Canberra, Tubingen,  Berder and Chicago.

MLSS Taipei 2006 is also the 2006 version of the "summer institutes" held by the Institute of Information Science (IIS), Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan. Every year, IIS holds a "Summer Institute" on a topic in computer science to invite renowned scholars in the topic field to offer tutorials for researchers, students and practitioners. Topics covered in recent years include bioinformatics, peer-to-peer computing, and computer security.  This year MLSS is co-sponsored by IIS, the institute of statistical science of Academia sinica (ISS), and the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST).
