Among the many Bayes.250 meetings this year—including one at the Royal Statistical Society on June 19 and 20 I am co-organising with Chris Holmes—I just became aware of another Bayes 2013 meeting organised in Rotterdam by Emmanuel Lesaffre (I was going to write the ISBA Section on Biostatistics and Pharmaceutical Statistics but could not find a link on the webpage to a sponsorship of the section). Nice visual too! This could be an interesting start to a European tour of meetings in May and June, followed with the French statistical meeting in Toulouse, ABC in Rome, the Bayesian young statistician meeting in Milano, the 9th Conference on Bayesian Nonparametrics in Amsterdam, and then Bayes.250 at the RSS on June 19-20!

BAYSM 2013: first Bayesian Young Statisticians Meeting

Just got this email about the incoming first Bayesian Young Statisticians Meeting next June in Milano!

We would like to announce the first BAYESIAN YOUNG STATISTICIANS MEETING (BAYSM 2013), to be held in CNR IMATI in Milano on June 5-6, 2013.

BAYSM 2013 is a fantastic opportunity to present and discuss your work with other young statisticians in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, with senior discussant giving you suggestions and comments aimed at improving your work. Attendees are encouraged to give a talk and/or submit a poster. The meeting is aimed at early career statisticians, i.e. people carrying out a PhD, post-doc or finishing the Master Degree with outstanding theses/projects dealing with Bayesian statistics. Presentations on current PhD research are therefore welcomed as well as talks on work in progress on applied experience.

The registration and submissions are now open, with the following deadlines:

  • *Submission closing*: February 28, 2013
  • *Notification of acceptance*: March 15, 2013

*No conference fee is due*, but *registration is mandatory*, using the form available on the website. Electronic submission by email is required by sending both the TeX file (together with enclosed pictures) and the pdf file to baysm2013[@robase] Accepted papers will be published on the meeting website. Moreover, the abstract contributions and plenary lectures will be also included in a Springer book from the series “Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics”.

Note that the email does not mention any age limit for attending! Also Milano is not that far from Roma, so you should consider attending ABC in Roma on May 30-31, then make your leisurly way up north to Milano for BAYSM 2013!
