With JSM 2018 around the corner, the SBSS program committee would like to share the exciting program that SBSS/ISBA put together for this meeting.
SBSS/ISBA are offering the following two short and continuing education courses and one roundtable discussion:
- CE 04C: Bayesian thinking: fundamentals, computation, and multilevel modeling (Sat 7/28, 8:30am-5pm)
by Jim Albert (Bowling Green State University)
- CE 11C: Practical considerations for Bayesian and frequentist adaptive clinical trials (Sun 7/29, 8:30am-5pm)
by Frank Bretz (Novartis Pharma AG), Byron Jones (Novartis Pharma AG) and Peter Mueller (UT Austin)
- Roundtable discussion: Interpretable Statistical Machine Learning for Validation and Uncertainty Quantification of Complex Models (Tuesday 7/31, 7-8:15am)
by Ana Kupresanin (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory)
We are the main sponsors for the Invited ePoster session (taking place on Sunday 7/29, 8:30pm) and six Invited Paper sessions:
