Bayesian Meeting, November 28, 2016.

There is a growing interest in Bayesian methods and their applications at both the Mathematics and IT departments. To celebrate this tendency, a Bayesian meeting, an informal local mini-conference on Bayesian Analysis is being organised. The meeting takes place on November 28, 2016, and consists mostly of rather short talks about the research interests of the participants. The aim of the meeting is to get to know each other as well as about each other's research. The awareness of other Bayesians around could serve as the first step towards more cooperation.

Please register by November 23 (mainly for the purpose of ordering coffee) using this link. For questions, please send an email to Juozas Vaicenavicius.

A preliminary programme is as follows, and the room is 80101 at the Ångström Laboratory.
