Bayesian Fall school in La Rochelle

The French agronomy research institute INRA is organising a Fall school in La Rochelle, Nov. 28 – Dec. 02, on Bayesian methods, oriented towards the applications in food sciences, environmental sciences, and biology. The provisional program (in French) is

■ Initiation aux outils informatiques R et WinBUGS (TP et réalisation de projets sur ordinateur)
■ Rappels en probabilité et initiation aux modèles graphiques
■ Introduction de la démarche bayésienne à travers des exemples simples
■ Quelques aspects et anecdotes sur l’histoire passée et récente de la statistique bayésienne
■ Estimation des distributions a posteriori à l’aide de méthodes numériques (MCMC etc.)
■ Evaluation et sélection de modèles en statistique bayésienne
■ Distributions a priori et élicitation
■ Exposés prospectifs sur les méthodes bayésiennes

The instructors will be Sophie Ancelet, Chantal Guihenneuc-Jouyaux, and Jean-Michel Marin. There are still a few places available and the registration deadline is June 30. (The above picture is a painting by Henri-Paul Motte of Richelieu during the year long siege of La Rochelle in 1628, painting that was included in my primary school history book and that I then found fascinating…)

  2. In English, “Bayesian Fall” reads like the decline of Bayes, but such rumors of its demise are probably greatly exaggerated. :)

    Your choice of painting is not only totally apropos, but breathtaking: somehow passive and action-packed at the same time. Marvelous!
