International Bayesian statistics and data science conference comes to Oregon

By OSU College of Science news
Stan 2020, a Bayesian statistics and data science conference, will take place on August 11-14, 2020 at Oregon State University. 

The 5th Stan Conference will take place at Oregon State University on August 11-14, 2020. The four-day conference 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. Deadlines and other information can be found here.

Stan is a freedom-respecting, open-source software that has had an extensive and far-reaching 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, a member of the National Academy of Sciences, from the University of Washington, Seattle. 

Debashis Mondal, associate professor in the Department of Statistics at OSU, is a co-organizer of Stan 2020. The other organizers of Stan 2020 are Susana Marquez, The Rockefeller Foundation; Eric J. Ward, Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NOAA); Yi Zhang, Metrum Research Group; and Daniel Lee, Generable.
