The 3rd Winter Workshop will bring Bayesian statisticians and decision theorists together with scientific practitioners who use, or may use, Bayesian methods in scientific research. Workshop participants will include leading researchers from statistics and computer science together with a range of applied social, natural, biomedical and engineering scientists, in a forum conducive to free-flowing exchange and discussion of Bayesian ideas and applied Bayesian methods. Invited presentations will address issues pervasive in scientific inference, recent developments in the theory, methods and computational aspects of Bayesian statistics and decision analysis, and various scientific applications.
