Bayesian webinar: Bayesian conjugate gradient

Posted in Statistics with tags , , , , , , on September 25, 2019 by xi'an

Bayesian Analysis is launching its webinar series on discussion papers! Meaning the first 90 registrants will be able to participate interactively via the Zoom Conference platform while additional registrants will be able to view the Webinar on a dedicated YouTube Channel. This fantastic initiative is starting with the Bayesian conjugate gradient method of Jon Cockayne (University of Warwick) et al., on October 2 at 4pm Greenwich time. (With available equivalences for other time zones!) I strongly support this initiative and wish it the widest possible success, as it could bring a new standard for conferences, having distant participants gathering in a nearby location to present talks and attend other talks from another part of the World, while effectively participating. An dense enough network could even see the non-stop conference emerging!

Here is the link to the first ISBA webinar given by Mark Berliner last Friday (the very first seconds of the audio are garbled, but only those!):

first ISBA webinar on Bayesian Mechanistic-Statistical Modeling

Posted in Statistics, University life with tags , , , , , on November 2, 2012 by xi'an

Mark Berliner, from Ohio State University, will give the first ISBA webinar on November 16th, 2012, 12:00 PM EST (or US Atlantic Coast time) through 1:30 PM.The topic is Bayesian Mechanistic-Statistical Modeling with Examples in Geophysical Settings and this webinar is free to both members and non-members of ISBA, but to participate in the webinar, please complete the registration form before 5:00pm EST on November 15, 2012. Registrered participants will receive an email with instructions on how to connect to the webinar prior to the event. (In case you can, please make a voluntary contribution to the Pilar Iglesias Travel Award fund.  This award provides support to graduate students and young researchers from developing countries to attend ISBA meetings.) Thanks to Kate Calder and Merlise Clyde for organising this grand première and to Mark for agreeing to give this webinar. I hope this idea of organising webinars will spread out to the community as a way to save on travelling and reaching out much, much more (assuming the system can handle many participants).
