|International Workshop on Bayesian Data Analysis
7-10 August 2003: Santa Cruz, CA
OverviewThe focus of the workshop will be Bayesian data analysis: starting with a real problem in science or decision-making, formulating the problem in statistical terms, using Bayesian methods to solve the original problem, and discussing the strengths and weaknesses of the solution both statistically and substantively, with plenty of attention to the interplay between the real-world context and the Bayesian model-building, checking, and reformulating.
The meeting will be held on the campus of the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC), immediately after the Joint Statistical Meetings that will take place from August 3-7, 2003, in nearby San Francisco.
The goal is to bring together about 100 people interested in Bayesian applications in a variety of disciplines, including (but not limited to) bioinformatics, biostatistics, econometrics, engineering, epidemiology, computer science, machine learning, and statistics.
We hope that the setting of the UCSC campus, in a beautiful grove of redwood trees overlooking Monterey Bay, will create a fruitful atmosphere for multidisciplinary discussions and transfer of ideas.
We expect invited sessions on at least the following topics:
