phishing alert at CIRM!

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)

for which registration is free but compulsory.
