Bayesian statistics has gained significant popularity recently. This event is the SECOND part of a TWO-DAY workshop that will take place 06/04-07/04/2017. Please find the registration for DAY ONE here.
This part is only accessible for PhD Students that are affiliated with either of the following schools: Cardiff University School of Psychology, Medicine or Biosciences (*see details below)
Please provide your school affiliation with the registration!
We will also record this event and make it publicly accessible together will all material used.
Content and requirements:
This part will be practical and includes lectures and coding exercises led by Dr. Richard Morey. The event is aimed at an introductory level and includes lectures and coding exercises The lectures will cover some basics of Bayesian Statistics. The coding exercises will provide an introduction to Bayesian modeling the freely available software packages R and JAGS.
IMPORTANT: After your registration we will send you an e-mail with further information and ask you to send a confirmation of your school affiliation (based on SIMS). For the workshop, students are required 1) to bring their own laptops and 2) preinstall the relevant software packages (i.e. BEFORE THE EVENT). We will provide installation instructions and basic support if needed.
To make the most of this event we encourage students to familiarise themselves with the bacis of R programming before the event for which we will provide ressources.

(*) To guarantee a good learning experience we have limited the maximum number of participants to 15 per school. Once this is reached, you may still sign up for the waitlist in case someone cancels. If two weeks before the event tickets should not be taken up for a certain school, they will be made available to PhD students from any school at Cardiff University.
