València International Bayesian Analysis Summer School

Estimados alumnos y alumnas:

Os remito la información sobre la I Escuela de Verano Internacional sobre Estadística Bayesiana, que tendrá lugar en Valencia del 17 al 21 de Julio de 2017. Está dirigida principalmente a alumnos de cuarto curso de Grado, así como a estudiantes egresados.

VIBASS I is the first edition of the summer school on Bayesian Statistics to be held from 17th until 21st July 2017 in València (Spain). VIBASS offers an opportunity to be introduced into the Bayesian reasoning 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 sessions in the morning and practical sessions in basic Bayesian R packages in the afternoon. 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 first edition is dedicated to Stan, a probabilistic programming language for describing data and models for Bayesian inference. This course (12 hours) is provided by Aki Vehtari, Associate professor in computational science at Aalto University (Helsinky), co-author of the third edition of the book Bayesian Data Analysis and member of the Stan development team.
  3. The last day, Friday 21th, is devoted to the First VIBASS Workshop. It includes two plenary sessions, with invited speakers researchers Mark Brewer from Biomathematics and Statistics Scotland (BioSS) and Maria Grazia Pennino (Instituto Oceanográfico de Murcia), and a wide poster session with contributions of the participants in the school.

We are also preparing an exciting social programe for the Summer School.
