Due to the increased interest in Bayesian statistics, a decision has been made to change Bayes on the Beach from an annual to a biennial meeting, to coincide with the alternate year from ISBA and SSA. As a result BoB has been deferred to 2017. A claim the date notice will be issued early in the new year.
Bayes on the Beach is an (almost) annual conference held in Australia, organised by the Bayesian Research & Applications Group (BRAG) in collaboration with ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical & Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS); the Australasian chapter of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA); the Statistical Society of Australia, (SSAI) Bayesian Statistics Section; and Queensland University of Technology (QUT). This meeting has been held for almost 12 years and is a small gathering of Bayesians drawn from across Australia and around the world.
The meeting provides an opportunity for Australian and international researchers to present and discuss the most recent research developments in Bayesian statistics. In this meeting, delegates are encouraged to make contacts with experienced researchers including internationally well-known keynote speakers. The interactive workshops and tutorials aim to discuss and resolve open problems using Bayesian methods by working in groups. The invited presentations contain a series of interesting and recent research topics related to Bayesian methodology. During the poster sessions, the presenters have the chance to discuss their research with other delegates in a relaxing environment.
Details of the 2016 meeting are as follows:
Location: Mantra Legends Hotel, Cnr Surfers Paradise Boulevard & Laycock Street, Surfers Paradise QLD 4217.
Dates: Monday 7th to Wednesday 9th November 2016.
