Bayes on the Beach 2016 Deferred to 2017

New Dates to be advised early in 2017, Surfers Paradise, Queensland


A call for submissions for Bayes on the Beach 2017 will be sent out early in 2017.

Bayes on the Beach invites submissions of abstracts on all topics related to Bayesian statistics, including computational, theoretical, methodological and applied research.

All accepted abstracts will be presented at the meeting either as invited oral or poster presentations.

If you would like to be considered to conduct a tutorial or one-hour workshop – please contact

As there are only approximately 10 invited talks, the majority of presentations will be delivered as posters.
