workshop a Venezia

I came to Venezia today to give a series of two talks on recent advances in ABC, within a workshop on Likelihood, approximate likelihood and nonparametric statistical methods for complex applications, organised by the Ca’ Foscari University, and marking the end of two 2008 research projects.

It is always the same pleasure to stay in Venezia, to roam the back streets away from the crowds, and to discover hidden passageways, magnificent buildings, and unsuspected trattorias with the most exquisite sea foods (being with Italian friends obviously helping a lot!)… I actually did a short run this morning, spending more time waiting for the sun to come behind San Giorggio Maggiore. Here are the slides of my tutorial, mostly for the benefit of the workshop attendees, as they replicate those I gave in Bristol last week. (Plus the two sections on ABC model choice.)
