BYU Statistics Department plans annual summer workshop June 15-17

The Department of Statistics at Brigham Young University will host guest speakers from the University of California-Santa Cruz during its 30th Annual Summer Institute of Applied Statistics Wednesday through Friday, June 15-17.

Registration information for BYU faculty, students and LDS Church employees can be obtained from Kathi Carter, 230 TMCB, BYU, Provo, UT 84602, (801) 422-4506 or email kathi_carter@byu.edu.

Speakers Thanasis Kottas and David Draper from the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Baskin School of Engineering, will present the topic of “Practical Bayesian Non-Parametric and Semi-Parametric Modeling.”

Bayesian non-parametric and semi-parametric methods are considerably amplifying the flexibility of the increasingly popular Bayesian models. This course will provide an introduction to these methods, with emphasis on modeling approaches, simulation-based model fitting and applications.
