MCMSki IV Conference on MCMC methods and applications
The next MCMSki meeting, MCMSki IV, will be held in Chamonix Mont-Blanc, France, from Monday, January 6 to Wednesday, January 8, 2014. As for the previous MCMSki meetings, it is jointly supported by the IMS (Institute of Mathematical Statistics) and ISBA (International Society for Bayesian Analysis), and is the first official meeting of the newly created BayesComp section of ISBA. It will focus on all aspects of MCMC theory and methodology, including related fields like sequential Monte Carlo, approximate Bayesian computation, Hamiltonian Monte Carlo. In contrast with the earlier meetings, it will merge the satellite Adap'ski workshop into the main meeting by having parallel (invited and contributed) sessions on those different themes.
