International Summer School: Introduction to Bayesian Statistics 15.-19. Sept 2014, Bergen, Norway

Bergen

Bergen, Norway

Since a few years, various subsamples of Jörn Pagel, Joseph Chipperfield, Björn Reineking and I have been teaching an introductory summer school in Bayesian statistics. In previous years, we were in Bayreuth 2011 Bayreuth 2012, Göttingen 2013 and Freiburg 2013. This year, we will be in a beautiful field station close to Bergen, Norway. The merciless sampling algorithm removed Björn this year, but we are quite sure that we still have a stable estimate of the course content, covering:

  • Introduction to concepts of Bayesian statistics (Priors, Likelihoods, etc.)
  • Sampling methods (e.g. Markov Chain Monte Carlo)
  • Bayesian modeling and hierarchical Bayesian models
  • The Bugs model language and its implementations such as JAGS and OpenBugs

Applications via the course website.
