Details

Our 3rd meeting will have 2 talks from members of the group, each about 30mins long. We'll also make 10 mins for lightning talks if anyone wants to get up and quickly tell us all about anything cool they're working on / new packages etc.

Note, we've recklessly decided to host this event AND the PyMC3 hack on the same weekend! This much concentrated Bayesian stats might cause a rip in spacetime.... Hopefully though, it allows everyone to make at least one of the events.

Talks:

+ CrossVal & LOO in Stan, Luis Usier

+ DNA Mixtures & Bayesian Networks, Robert Cowell

+ Lightning Talks TBC

General proceedings

18:30 - Arrive, drink coffee, chat Bayes

19:00 - Talks begin

20:30 - Head to the pub

NOTES

Cass Business School have very kindly offered the venue and refreshments for this event. We'll also be close to the Artillery Arms for a drink and a chat afterwards if you like. We're always looking for new speakers, so please stick around and discuss things afterwards. Conservatively, we can fit 50 people, but will set the RSVP list at 75 to allow for no-shows. Please feel free to join the waitlist, and please update your RSVP if you can't make it.
