O’Bayes 19: registration and travel support

Posted in pictures, Running, Travel, University life with tags , , , , , , , on February 14, 2019 by xi'an

An update about the O’Bayes 19 conference next June-July:  the early registration period has now opened. And there should be funds for supporting early-career researchers, thanks to Google and CNRS sponsorships, as detailed below:

Early-career researchers less than four years from PhD, are invited to apply for early-career scholarships. If you are a graduate student, postdoctoral researcher or early-career academic and you are giving a poster, you are eligible to apply. Female researchers and underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply. Selected applicants will receive up to £450, which can be used for any combination of fees, travel and accommodation costs, subject to receipts.

The deadline for applying is the 15th of March (which is also the deadline to submit the abstract for the poster) and it has to be done at the registration phase via the dedicated page. Those who have submitted an abstract before this information on scholarships was made available (11 Feb.) and applying for travel support should contact the organisers.

O’Bayes 2019: poster deadline extension

Posted in pictures, Statistics, Travel, University life with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 31, 2019 by xi'an

For potential participants to the ISBA O’Bayes 2019 conference in Warwick next June 28 – July 02, that is, almost everyone except the participants who have already submitted!, this post is to announce that the deadline for poster submission has just been extended till March 15, to account for BNP 12 potential participants having not yet been notified of the accepted contributed sessions. Or the poster presentations there, since the same poster can be discussed at both places, by all means!  (Thank you Robin for pointing this out!) As an aside, the construction of the webpage is still under development for registration fees (low) and university accommodations (cheap), but should be out next week! (The current links are to BAYSM 2018, which took place last year, obviously.)

O’Bayes 2019: speakers, discussants, posters!

Posted in pictures, Statistics, University life with tags , , , , on January 2, 2019 by xi'an

The program for the next O’Bayes conference in Warwick, 28 June-02 July, 2019, is now set. Speakers and discussants have been contacted by the scientific committee and accepted our invitation! As usual, there will be poster sessions on the nights of 29 and 30 June and the call is open for poster submissions, until January 31, to be sent to me as a one page pdf document containing either the poster itself or title, abstract and references. (Using my email address at either Dauphine or Warwick is fine. Or bayesianstatistics on gmail.)
