3rd Meeting on Statistics

24-26 June 2015

                    We are pleased to invite you to the 3rd Meeting on Statistics which will take place in  Athens, Greece, from Wednesday June 24th to Friday June 26th, 2015. The meeting will be held at the premises of the Athens University History Museum located in Plaka, the historical centre of Athens. This series of meetings was originally motivated by discussions between the Greek and Italian Statistical community. Our intention is to continue the tradition of this series of meetings and extend participation by inviting friends, collaborators and colleagues from the broader statistical community. 

             The first day of the conference (24th of June) will be dedicated to Bayesian variable and model selection including special sessions on prior specification and marginal likelihood estimation.

        Other topics of interest include: graphical models, categorical data analysis, financial modeling, latent variable models, longitudinal data, MCMC methods, marginal models,  non-parametric statistics, time-series analysis and biostatistics.  

        The conference early registration fee is 100 for academics and non-academics and 50for students, payable to Athens University of Economics and Business via electronic payment or direct bank transfer. More details and a list of suggested hotels are available here.

        This year, we will also organize a pre-conference course on Bayesian Modelling and Variable Selection using WinBUGS & R  at the Athens University of Economics and Business.

The conference was completed successfully without any problems and we believe that everybody enjoyed both the scientific and the social program of the meeting.

Unfortunately for Greece (and fortunately for the meeting), our prime Minister announced the referendum at 1.00 in the night of Friday 28th of June 2015 when we all return back at our homes or hotel rooms after our concluding dinner which we all enjoyed. We hope everything evolved well in Greece and be able to meet again in the next meeting in Greece.
