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.
A preliminary programme is as follows, and the room is 80101 at the Ångström Laboratory.
13:15 Thomas Schön (IT) Bayesian modelling of nonlinear dynamical systems
13:50 Erik Ekström (Math) Stochastic optimization under uncertainty
14:25 Juozas Vaicenavicius (Math) Wrong too often and always too late — in search
for optimal decisions
14:45 Tilo Wiklund (Math) Bayes risks and divergences in the comparison of
15:30 Niklas Wahlström (IT) Modeling magnetic fields using Gaussian processes
15:50 Stefan Engblom (IT) Data-driven Epidemiological Simulations
16:10-16:20 Short break
16:20 Lawrence Murray (IT) Anytime Monte Carlo
16:40 Tobias Ryden (IT/Lynx) Data-driven pooling in shrinkage
17:00 The meeting ends.
