COURSE: Bayes for Beginners
|Bayes for Beginners : Two Short Courses on Bayesian Statistics
Participants must bring their own laptops.
Bayesian approaches to statistical modelling and analysis are being enthusiastically adopted in many disciplines. The course is structured as two mini-workshops each of two days: Introductory Bayesian analysis using WinBugs and Bayesian analysis using R. Topics covered in the introductory Bayes with WinBugs include an introduction to Bayesian models, Bayesian computation via MCMC, and Bayesian networks. Practical sessions will include the use ofWinBugs for Bayesian analysis and GeNie for Bayesian networks. The course is deliberately aimed at a beginner level and is strongly practical in nature. The Bayesian analysis using R workshop assumes at least some exposure to Bayesian methods, and looks both at how to undertake Bayesian analysis within the powerful R statistical computing and graphics environment, as well as linking the R software to WinBugs. Problems encountered in this second course are of a more challenging nature.
