Workshop on Bayesian Spatio-Temporal Modelling, Edinburgh 8-9/10/13

Posted by Rebecca Martin on Wed, 21/08/2013 - 09:55

This series of research talks and discussion forum is in honour of the contribution of Rev Thomas Bayes. Bayes was a student of the University of Edinburgh from 1719 to c. 1722. This yearly workshop follows in footsteps of the Bayes 250 workshop organised in 2011 to mark the 250th anniversary of Rev Bayes's death and Bayes Lectures organized in 2012. This year's meeting is particularly focused on the contributions of Bayes's ideas towards the development and application of statistical methods to spatial and spatio-temporal problems.

The workshop will start in the afternoon of Tues 8 October and finish at lunchtime on Weds 9 October, 2013.

Invited speakers:
Peter J Diggle, Lancaster University
Gavin Gibson, Heriot-Watt University
Jonty Rougier, University of Bristol
Andrew Zammit-Mangion, University of Bristol
Adam Butler, Biomathematics and Statistics Scotland (BioSS), Edinburgh
