Subject: Bayesian Modeling Workshop Opportunity

The National Science Foundation is sponsoring an annual, two-week workshop to provide intensive training in Bayesian modeling for post-doctoral researchers, academic faculty, and agency scientists. Twenty participants will be invited each year. There will be no cost for participation in the workshop. A $1000 stipend will be provided to each U.S. participant, and a $700 stipend will be provided to each international participant (due to taxes withheld), to defray costs of travel. The second workshop will be held May 21-25, 27-30, 2014 at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO.


Goals of the Workshop

1. Provide a principles-based understanding of Bayesian methods needed to train students, to evaluate papers and proposals, and to solve research problems.

2. Communicate the statistical concepts and vocabulary needed to foster collaboration between ecologists and statisticians.

3. Provide the conceptual foundations and quantitative confidence needed for self-teaching modern analytical methods.
