Today I received in the mail a copy of the short book published by edp sciences after the courses we gave last year at the astrophysics summer school, in Autrans. Which contains a quick introduction to ABC extracted from my notes (which I still hope to turn into a book!). As well as a longer coverage of Bayesian foundations and computations by David Stenning and David van Dyk.

phishing alert at CIRM!

Posted in Mountains, pictures, Statistics, Travel, University life with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 13, 2018 by xi'an

A strong and loud warning to all participants to one of the three events organised in CIRM, Luminy, Marseilles, in conjunction with Kerrie Mengersen’s Jean Morlet visiting chair, namely that some participants have received calls from crooks posting as CIRM admins, asking for credit card details towards supporting their stay at CIRM. This is a phishing attempt as self-supported participants to these events will be asked to pay at the end of their stay and never by phone or mail. In the meanwhile, there remains a few entries for both

  1. Bayesian Statistics in the Big Data Era (26-30 Nov, 2018)
  2. Young Bayesians and Big Data for Social Good (23-26 Nov., 2018)
