The workshop on model uncertainty organised by the Centre for Research in Statistical Methodology (CRiSM) at the University of Warwick, on May 30-June 1, and discussed in that post is now almost full and there are only a few slots left for contributed talks! The deadline for abstract submission and Young Academic Awards is March 15 but interested readers should apply asap!

Model uncertainty in Warwick

Posted in Statistics, University life with tags , , , , , on November 19, 2009 by xi'an

Yet another workshop: Prior to the Valencia 9/ISBA 2010 meeting, there will be a workshop on model uncertainty organised by the Centre for Research in Statistical Methodology (CRiSM) at the University of Warwick, on May 30-June 1. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss recent developments and research on topics related to model uncertainty and model choice. The workshop largely follows the format of the 2006 CRiSM workshop on Bayesian Inference for Stochastic Systems. As in 2006, the timing of the conference has been chosen to ease the transition, for all interested participants, to the Valencia International Meetings on Bayesian Statistics, starting on June 3. The invited speakers are
Jim Berger (Duke)
Carlos Carvalho (Chicago)
David Dunson (Duke)
Jon Forster (Southampton)
Arnoldo Frigessi (Oslo)
Alan Gelfand (Duke)
Ed George (Pennsylvania)
Chris Holmes (Oxford)
Michael Jordan (Berkeley)
Robert Kohn (Sydney)
Athanasios Kottas (California)
Antonio Lijoi (Pavia)
David Madigan (Columbia)
Peter Müller (Texas)
Christian Robert (Paris)
David Spiegelhalter (Cambridge)
Yee Whye Teh (UCL)
Nanny Wermuth (Gothenburg)
Henry Wynn (LSE)
and I am looking forward this topical meeting because this is an area central to my research interests. Since most attendees will also be in Benidorm the following week, we can envision ten days of exciting debates about the nature of Bayesian model choice!
