We are happy to announce the València International Bayesian Summer School
(VIBASS 5) that will take place from 18 to 22 July 2022 in València (Spain).
VIBASS 5 is a 5-day summer school that offers an opportunity to be introduced
into Bayesian learning without previous knowledge in the subject.

The five days of VIBASS 5 are organised in three parts:

1) Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 include a basic course on Bayesian learning (12
hours), with conceptual sessions and practical sessions with R packages. It
would be advisable that participants bring their laptops for the practical

2) Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 is dedicated to an issue of current interest in
Bayesian research. The topic of this edition is Spatial and
spatio-temporal models with the R-INLA package. This 12 hours course is
provided by Prof. Marta Blangiardo (Imperial College London, U.K.) and Prof.
Michela Cameletti (Università degli studi di Bergamo, Italy). They are the
authors of the book “Spatial and Spatio-temporal Bayesian Models with R-INLA”
published by Wiley.

3) Friday 22 is the last day of the school. It is devoted to the Fifth VIBASS
Workshop. We will have two plenary sessions with invited speakers Prof. Maria
Eugenia Castellanos (Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Spain) and Prof. Gianluca
Baio (University College London, U.K.). Attendants to the school are
encouraged to present their research in an informal brainstorming as well as in
a poster session.

VIBASS 5 is organized by the VAlència BAyesian Research group, VABAR research
group and supported by Universitat de València, Generalitat Valenciana,
Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, CIRAD and Biomathematics and Statistics
Scotland, BioSS. More information and practical details about VIBASS 5
