We are organising a two-day Bayesian workshop in Grenoble in September 6-7, 2018. It will be the second edition of the Italian-French statistics seminar (link to first edition), titled this year: Bayesian learning theory for complex data modeling. The workshop will give to young statisticians the opportunity to learn from and interact with highly qualified senior researchers in probability, theoretical and applied statistics, with a particular focus on Bayesian methods.

Anyone interested in this field is welcome. There will be two junior sessions and a poster session with a call for abstract open until June 30. A particular focus will be given to researchers in the early stage of their career, or currently studying for a PhD, MSc or BSc. The junior session is supported by ISBA through travel awards.

There will be a social dinner on September 6, and a hike organised in the mountains on September 8.

Nine R user communities already exist in France and there is a much large number of R communities around the world. It was time for Grenoble to start its own!

The goal of the R user group is to facilitate the identification of local useRs, to initiate contacts, and to organise experience and knowledge sharing sessions. The group is open to any local useR interested in learning and sharing knowledge about R.

The group’s website features a map and table with members of the R group. Members with specific skills related to the use of R are referenced in a table and can be contacted by other members.  A gitter allows members to discuss R issues and a calendar presents the upcoming events.  (more…)
