    Overcoming Practical Problems
    in Applying Bayesian Methods

    22 September 2017 - 23 September 2017
    9:30am (Friday) to 4pm (Saturday)


    Have you had problems using Bayesian methods in your research?
    Can't find a colleague you can bounce ideas off?
    Having trouble with Bayesian software tools?
    Are you the only Bayesian in the village?
    Are you in a Bayes daze?
    Are you Bayes-curious?


    Come to Bayes Days at the Liverpool Institute for Risk and Uncertainty, and find the solutions and the collaborators you've been looking for.

    Bayes Days is a convocation of mutual support for Bayesians and would-be Bayesians who have been stymied by intractable problems, wonky software, problematic data, or just their own inexperience. Presentations from any discipline or subject matter are welcome. Presentations with flawed or preliminary Bayesian analyses are welcome. Presenters can self-label their problems with

    • n00b needs help
    • software issues
    • technical problems
    • nagging concerns
    • philosophical puzzles
    • solved problem
    • no problems at all
    • my analysis is perfect
    or some other descriptive phrase. Presenters will get audience feedback, off-the-cuff suggestions, and possibly the chance to meet future collaborators.

    The conference is open to everyone free of charge and will include training and tutorial workshops on Bayesian methods aimed at both introductory and intermediate-level audiences.

    If you would like to make an oral or poster presentation send an abstract (300 words or less) and self-label with one of the items in the list above, along with your name, affiliation, email, and phone number.

    If you would like to offer a training workshop, send a description (less than a page) explaining the content, intended audience, required resources, planned duration (2 hours or 4 hours) and maximum number of participants.

    Place: Institute for Risk and Uncertainty, Chadwick Building, University of Liverpool

    Time: 9:30 am, 22 September 2017 to 4 pm, 23 September (Friday-Saturday)
