València International Bayesian Analysis Summer School, 5th edition

VIBASS5 2022

VIBASS5 is the fifth edition of the summer school on Bayesian Statistics to be held from 18 to 22 July 2022 in València (Spain). Here is a small history of VIBASS and its past editions.

The five days of VIBASS are organised in three parts:

  1. The first two days include a basic course on Bayesian learning (12 hours), alternating conceptual and practical sessions with R packages.

    It would be advisable that participants bring their laptops for the practical sessions.

  2. The second part is dedicated to an issue of current interest in Bayesian research.

    This edition is dedicated to spatial and spatio-temporal models with the R-INLA package.

    This 12 h course is provided by Prof. Marta Blangiardo (Imperial College London, U.K.) and Prof. Michela Cameletti (Università degli studi di Bergamo, Italy). They are the authors of the book “Spatial and Spatio-temporal Bayesian Models with R-INLA” published by Wiley.


  3. The last day is devoted to the Fifth VIBASS Workshop.

    It includes two plenary sessions, with invited speakers Prof. Maria Eugenia Castellanos (Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Spain) and Prof. Gianluca Baio (University College London, U.K.).

    The workshop ends with a informal brainstorming and a poster session with contributions of the participants in the school.
