València International Bayesian Analysis Summer School, 6th edition

VIBASS6 2023

VIBASS6 is the sixth edition of the summer school on Bayesian Statistics to be held from 10 to 15 July 2023 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 Bayesian capture-recapture inference with hidden Markov models.

    This 12 h course is provided by Dr. Olivier Gimenez (Centre d’Écologie Fonctionnelle & Évolutive, Montpellier, France). He is the author of the open on-line book Bayesian Analysis of Capture-Recapture Data with Hidden Markov Models: Theory and Case Studies in R.


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

    It includes two plenary sessions, with invited speakers Prof. Concepción Ausín (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain) and Prof. Duncan Lee (University of Glasgow, Scotland).

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