Experience first-hand how a Bayesian approach to data analysis can improve inference and increase understanding. And obtain practical experience with JAGS or WinBUGS, easy-to-use computer programs that allow the user to implement all kinds of Bayesian models.
August 17 – 21, 2020
In this workshop, plenary lectures provide the theoretical background of Bayesian inference, and practical computer exercises teach you how to apply the popular JAGS and Stan software to a wide range of different statistical models. After completing this workshop, you will have gained not only a new understanding of statistics, but also the technical skills to implement models that are appropriate for the substantive hypotheses that you seek to test.
