The Bayesian Section of the Italian Society of Statistics has been established in 2013.
The group aims to provide a permanent forum for statisticians and other people who have scientific, cultural or historical interest in the Bayesian paradigm.
The broad objectives of the Section are:
To create, within SIS, a reference group of researchers ready to debate scientific issues related to the Bayesian approach to statistics, and to promote participation of its members to international research projects.
To promote and coordinate applied and theoretical research in the field
To encourage and organize specialized sessions and ad hoc tutorials at national and international statistical meetings
To disseminate Bayesian ideas and methods among young students and scholars in both Statistics and other fields.
To foster the application of the Bayesian paradigm in science, industry, business, finance, and official statistics.
