The ISBA 2016 World Meeting is the continuation of the traditional Valencia/ISBA Meetings regularly held since 1979. They represent a unique event where the Bayesian community gathers together to discuss recent advances and the future of our profession, at the same time looking back to our roots and traditions, following the footsteps of those who laid the foundations of where we are now.
Recent world meetings have been held in Valencia (Benidorm, Spain) in 2006, Hamilton Island (Australia) in 2008; Valencia (Benidorm, Spain), in 2010; Kyoto (Japan), in 2012; Cancun (Mexico), in 2014. Since 2012 the meetings are exclusively organized by ISBA.
We hope you will continue to be part of such tradition at ISBA 2016!
