València International Bayesian Analysis Summer School

València International Bayesian Analysis Summer School

The Third edition of the València International Bayesian Summer School (VIBASS3) will take place from the 22th to the 26th of July 2019 in València (Spain).

VIBASS3 is a 5-day summer school that offers an opportunity to be introduced into Bayesian learning without previous knowledge in the subject.

 

The five days of VIBASS are organised in three parts:

 

1) The first two days include a basic course on Bayesian learning (12 hours), with conceptual session and practical sessions with R packages. It would be advisable that participants bring their laptops for the practical sessions.

 

2) The second part is dedicated to an issue of current interest in Bayesian research.This edition is dedicated to Applied Bayesian Computation and the NIMBLE Platform for Hierarchical Modeling and MCMC. This 12 h course is provided by Daniel Turek, Assistant Professor of Statistics, Williams College and member of the NIMBLE Development Team.

 

3) Friday 29 is the last day of the school. It is devoted to the Third VIBASS Workshop. We will have two plenary sessions with invited speakers: Eleni Matechou (University of Kent) and Gonzalo García-Donato (Universidad Castilla-La Mancha). Attendants to the school are encouraged to present their research in an informal brainstorming as well as in a poster session.

 

VIBASS3 is organised by the VABAR research group and supported by Universitat de València and Biomathematics and Statistics Scotland, BIOSS.
