ABC in Grenoble, 19-20 March 2020 [registration open]

Posted in Mountains, Statistics, Travel, University life with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 7, 2020 by xi'an

Reminding readers that the next occurrence of the “ABC in…” workshops will very soon take place in Grenoble, France, on 19-20 March 2020. Confirmed speakers and sessions (with more to come) are

Misspecified models

Links with Machine Learning

  • Flora Jay (Université d’Orsay, France) TBA
  • Pierre-Alexandre Mattei (Inria Sophia Antipolis – Méditerranée, France) Partially Exchangeable Networks and Architectures for Learning Summary Statistics in Approximate Bayesian Computation
  • Dennis Prangle (Newcastle University, UK) Scalable approximate inference for state space models with normalising flows

As in most earlier versions of the “ABC in…”workshops (ABC in Paris, London, Roma, &tc.), we are aiming at a workshop atmosphere and, thanks to local sponsors, the registration fees are null, but registration is compulsory. And now open!

I also remind ‘Og’s readers that Grenoble can be easily reached by fast trains from Paris, Roissy, Geneva and Lyon. (There are also flights to Grenoble airport from Warwick, as well as Bristol, Edinburgh, London, Manchester, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Warsaw, but this is less convenient than flying to Lyon Saint-Exupery airport and then catching a direct train at the airport.) To add to the appeal of the place, the workshop occurs during the skiing season, with three mountain ranges in the close vicinity. Making ABski a genuine possibility for the weekend after!
