Carnon [and Core, bis]

Except for an early morning run to the outskirts of the (heavily built and downright ugly) Grande Motte, without catching sight of a pink flamingo, I had a rather full day of working on Bayesian Core with Jean-Michel. I managed to complete the hidden Markov section but we still have some way to go on both the hierarchical and the image analysis chapters… We essentially have to handle yet a new dataset for each chapter. With just one and a half day to go!

I am now for a few days in Carnon, near Montpellier, to work on the completion (!) of Bayesian Core, started two years ago not that far in Luminy… The small beach town is right on the Mediterranean Sea, located on a spit (or lido), itself carrying a canal between the Lez river and the sea. A quiet enough place, far from interruptions of all sorts! Although we are really not that far from completion, various commitments here and there kept Jean-Michel and myself from doing it over the past months. I am thus looking forward those two and a half days of hard work (and not even a break to go climbing in the back country!).
