  • Trenitalia (Italian Railways Company) has published on June, 9th the FULL summer schedule. Please have a look here
  • Poster boards are 185 cm wide by 130 cm high. Every board can contain two posters on A0 paper (84 cm wide by 119 cm high).
  • Accademia Cusano accepts only CASH payment

  • The workshop follows the ones held in Madrid in 1998, in Varenna in 2001, La Manga in 2003, Varenna in 2005 and Valencia in 2007. The Workshop is now held every other year, once in Italy and once in Spain.

    In this workshop, we will bring together experts in the field to review, discuss and explore directions of development of Bayesian Inference in Stochastic Processes and in the use of Stochastic Processes for Bayesian Inference. There will be sessions on Markov processes, state-space models, spatial, empirical, birth-death and branching processes. Theoretical and applied contributions (for example queueing, population modelling, signal processing) are both welcome. The workshop will thus be of interest to workers in both Bayesian Inference and Stochastic Processes. The workshop will be held in an informal environment (Accademia Cusano), to encourage discussion and promote further research in these fields. The workshop will be held in the city of Bressanone (Brixen in German), in the Italian Alps, close to the Austrian border.

    In June 15-18, in the same place, there will be ABS09 - 2009 Applied Bayesian Statistics School, devoted in 2009 to Bayesian Methodology for Clustering, Classification and Categorical Data Analysis. The lecturer will be Prof. Dipak Dey, University of Connecticut, USA.
