It would be advisable that participants bring their laptops for the practical sessions.
The second part is dedicated to an issue of current interest in Bayesian research.
This edition is dedicated to Bayesian computing with R-INLA.
This 12 h course is provided by Håvard Rue, founder of the INLA development team, Professor of Statistics and Principal Investigator of the Bayesian Computational Statistics and Modeling (BAYESCOMP) group, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and Janet van Niekerk, Post-Doctoral fellow In Statistics at KAUST.
