37th Annual BYU Summer Institute of Applied Statistics June 13-15

The 37th Annual Summer Institute of Applied Statistics at Brigham Young University, sponsored by the Department of Statistics, will be June 13-15.

The topic will be "Applied Bayesian Analysis in WinBUGS and SAS®" and will be presented by BYU statistics professor Gilbert W. Fellingham.

Registration information for BYU faculty and students and LDS Church employees is available from Amy Royer at the Department of Statistics, 223 TMCB BYU, Provo, UT 84602, aroyer@stat.byu.edu, (801) 422-4506, or at the website, statistics.byu.edu.

Bayesian statistical methods are more and more commonly encountered in today's quantitative world, according to Fellingham. With modern computing and Markov chain Monte Carlo techniques, the methods are much more generally available to the applied statistician. Currently, there are a number of software packages available that make implementing a Bayesian analysis quite straightforward.

The institute is intended for practitioners who want to be able to perform Bayesian analyses.

For more details, conact Gilbert W. Fellingham at (801) 422-2806.
