Second Workshop on


Villa Monastero, Varenna (LC), Italy

31 May - 2 June, 2001

Villa Monastero

Last update: 6/5/2001

The workshop follows the one held in Madrid in 1998. 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 queuing theory and population modelling, signal processing, empirical processes, spatial processes and other stochastic processes such as birth/death and branching processes. 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 ( Villa Monastero, an ancient villa, property of CNR (National Research Council), on the lake of Como) to encourage discussion and promote further research in these fields.
