Call for participation

End-to-end Bayesian learning methods - theory and practical applications
25-29 October 2021
CIRM

We invite PhD students and early stage researchers from academia or industry to apply to the winter school on the theory and practice of Bayesian learning methods.

The scientific core of this week is to provide a rich overview of end-to-end Bayesian solutions to real world learning problems in complex settings. The week will highlight all aspects of such approaches from data processing and feature engineering to Monte Carlo estimation procedures as well as the most recent theoretical guarantees obtained in high dimensional settings or frameworks with dependent and/or missing data.
The scientific program of this week includes 2 mini courses (3h), 6 plenary talks (1h30), 15 contributed talks (30min) and a poster session.

Confirmed spearkers
Elisabeth Gassiat, Université Paris-Saclay.
Rémi Bardenet, Université de Lille, CNRS.
Anthony Lee, University of Bristol.
Eric Moulines, Ecole Polytechnique.
Florence Forbes, INRIA Grenoble Rhone-Alpes.
Gareth Roberts, University of Warwick.
Judith Rousseau, University of Oxford.

Topics
The summer school will address various aspects of Bayesian learning methods.
* Convergence of Monte Carlo methods (Markov Chain Monte Carlo and Sequential Monte Carlo).
* Computational Statistics and Bayesian learning in deep learning.
* Nonparametric Bayesian statistics.
* Posterior concentration rates.
* Statistical methodology for missing data.
* Stochastic algorithms for approximating intractable likelihoods.

We welcome applications from PhD students and early stage researchers. This winter school is an opportunity to reinforce their knowledge about Bayesian learning and computational methods, to get in touch with distinguished international experts, and to discuss concrete problems and state-of-the-art solutions.

- The CIRM welcomes participants from Sunday afternoon to Friday afternoon.
- Prices include full-board accommodation for residents (all meals and logding onsite from Sunday evening to Friday 6pm).
- Single room (105€ per night - limited availability).
- Double room (95€ per night).
