International Bayesian statistics and data science conference comes to Oregon
The 5th Stan Conference is a four-day conference that will include two days of tutorials followed by an exciting scientific program comprising talks, posters, open discussions and statistical modeling.
Registration for Stan 2020 is now open. Researchers, students and professionals are encouraged to register for the conference which includes all tutorials. The conference is also soliciting session proposals, contributed talks and posters.
Stan is a freedom-respecting, open-source software that has had a phenomenal impact on Bayesian computations for a broad range of applied statistics and data science problems.
The conference typically draws 300 attendees from academia, industry and government agencies. The conference offers a great opportunity for students and other participants to learn about Bayesian computation.
Previous Stan Conferences were held at Columbia University, New York, and Cambridge University, U.K., among other places.
Plenary speakers at Stan 2020 are Elizabeth Wolkovich from the University of British Columbia and Adrian Rafftery from the University of Washington, Seattle, and a member of the National Academy of Sciences.
