MCMSki IV, Jan. 6-8, 2014, Chamonix (news #2)
More news about the MCMSki IV conference: the three plenary speakers have been selected by the Scientific Committee:
there are now eight invited or accepted contributed sessions in the program, with five more almost completed—including an exciting roundtable on MCMC software!—, the call is still open for contributed sessions or talks (make sure to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are considering putting one session together, remember: there will be parallel sessions, so we are selecting sessions based solely on quality and diversity!).
The registration page is almost complete (we are still discussing the rates for the ski race!), there will be buses booked (if not free) from and to Geneva airport, and some hotels have been pre-booked. The conference fees will range from 100€ for PhD students to 210€ for participants not members of ISBA or of IMS. I take the opportunity of this tribune to launch a call for sponsors! Whether publishing, software or skiing company, having sponsors for the coffee breaks, a wine party during the poster session(s), or the ski race, would be great!!! And would lower the overall fees (whose main bulk is due to renting the conference centre…)
Looking forward the completion of the program, best Season’s greetings to all future MCMSkiers!
