As the first fully virtual ISBA 2021 meeting is about to start, let me remind participants of the following:

On the Whova Agenda, you can see the Agenda in your local time, be sure to toggle the option. And the list of posters for each of the four poster sessions is available in the Agenda, as well as at the entrance of each poster “room” on gather.town

Reminder for session chairs

  •  Please join your session via Zoom’s panelist link instead of Whova
  • Please monitor Zoom’s Q&A and Zoom’s chat for questions from attendees
  • Please monitor the session time and remind the speakers of their time, as the webinar will close after 3 minutes after the end of the session
  • Please keep to the planned schedule for each talk in case of a missing speaker or of a speaker unable to join the Zoom platform for connection or technical reasons

Reminder for speakers

  • Please join your session via Zoom’s panelist link instead of Whova

Reminder for the remaining 2136 attendees

  • The Zoom link for a given session is available by selection this session from Whova Agenda and clicking on “Join the live stream here”
  • Please type your questions using Zoom’s Q&A or Zoom’s chat, and specify which speaker’s name you would like to hear the answers from
  • Please do not use Whova’s chat for questions  
  • Contributed sessions are recorded and already available, while invited sessions will be recorded with permission from the speakers

two ISBA meetings in 2022

As in 2019, both the O’Bayes and BNP conferences will occur the same year, if not back-to-back as in 2019 (when they were in neighbouring Oxford and Warwick, respectively). To quote from the current Chair of the OBayes section of ISBA, my friend Gonzalo,

“the next International Workshop on Objective Bayes Methodology (O-Bayes, OBayes, O’Bayes, Ohhh Bayes,..) is scheduled for September 2022 from 7th (Wed) to 10th (Sat) and will be hosted by University of California, Santa Cruz. This will be the 14th meeting of one of the longest-running and preeminent meetings in Bayesian statistics (the 1st was in USA 1996; the last one in 2019 in UK). In this conference, we will be celebrating the 70th birthday of Luis Pericchi an extraordinary person who has been very influential in the successful development of OBayesian ideas.”

thus seeing the O’Bayes meeting taking place in North America in early Fall, followed by BNP 13 in South America a month later (and thus Spring!), quoting from Alessandra Guglielmi:

“Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 13th World Meeting on Bayesian Nonparametrics (BNP Workshop) is postponed until 2022. The meeting is currently scheduled to take place in Puerto Varas, Chile, October 24-28, 2022.”
