Compstat 2010

As a member of the scientific committe of the incoming Compstat 2010 meeting, taking place in Paris next August (22-27), I have received abstracts to evaluate. The abstracts were available through EasyChair and I have never seen the like of this system! It looks as if it was conceived in the final months of the former DDR…  All abstracts come into a single bland page with no access to abstracts before papers are selected. Once I have made my selection of papers I would like to review, the list of selected papers still does not provide the abstracts. A true nightmare…

Note that the meeting will be held in the beautiful buildings of the  Conservatoire National des Arts et des Métiers,  which is also linked with Umberto Eco’s Foucault’s Pendulum since it partly takes place there. Another point of relevance is that Jean-Michel Marin will give a tutorial on Bayesian Core during Compstat 2010. (He will focus on Bayes factor approximations.)
