VIBASS2 is the second edition of the summer school on Bayesian Statistics to be held from 16th until 20th July 2018 in València (Spain). VIBASS2 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:
The first two days include a basic course on Bayesian learning (12 hours), with conceptual sessions in the morning and practical sessions with R packages in the afternoon.
It would be advisable that participants bring their laptops for the practical sessions.
The second part is dedicated to an issue of current interest in Bayesian research.
This second edition is dedicated to Structured Additive Regression Models and the R package BayesX.
This 12 h course is provided by Nadja Klein, Research Feodor-Lynen-Fellow (Humboldt Foundation), University of Melbourne (Australia) and Nikolaus Umlauf Assistant Professor in Statistics, Universität Innsbruck (Austria). Both are coauthors of the R package BayesX
The last day, Friday 20th, is devoted to the Second VIBASS Workshop.
It includes two plenary sessions, with invited speakers researchers Paloma Botella (Conselleria de Sanitat Universal i Salut Pública. Generalitat Valenciana)and Luigi Spezia (Biomathematics and Statistics Scotland, BioSS).
The workshop ends with a wide poster session with contributions of the participants in the school.
