The Third Workshop on Bayesian Inference for Latent Gaussian Models with Applications

12-14 September 2013

Reykjavík Iceland                                       


Following two successful meetings in Zürich in 2011 and in Trondheim 2012, we are pleased to announce that the Third Workshop on Bayesian Inference for Latent Gaussian Models with Applications will be held in Reykjavik 12-14 September 2013. Latent Gaussian models have numerous applications, for example in the social sciences, spatial and spatio-temporal data, epidemiology, climate modeling, and image processing. This workshop brings together researchers who develop methodology and fit datasets in this broad model class.
