BAYSM ’14 im Wien, Sep. 18-19

It all started in Jim Berger’s basement, drinking with the uttermost reverence an otherworldly Turley Zinfandel during the great party Ann and Jim Berger hosted for the O’Bayes’13 workshop in Duke. I then mentioned to Angela Bitto and Alexandra Posekany, from WU Wien, that I was going to be in Austria next September for a seminar in Linz, at the Johannes Kepler Universität, and, as it happened to take place the day before BAYSM ’14, the second conference of the young Bayesian statisticians, in connection with the j-ISBA section, they most kindly invited me to the meeting! As a senior Bayesian, most obviously! This is quite exciting, all the more because I never visited Vienna before. (Contrary to other parts of Austria, like the Großglockner, where I briefly met Peter Habeler. Trivia: the cover picture of the ‘Og is actually taken from the Großglockner.)

    Hey Christian,
    we are delighted that you are looking forward to the Meeting – so do we. Reaching young (and not so young) Bayesians via the Og is an excellent move.
    I just briefly want to mention that both Angela and I studied at TU Wien, but now work for WU Wien which is also where the conference takes place.
    We look forward to meeting you in Vienna!
