The world meeting of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA) will take place in Edinburgh, a beautiful and historical location intimately associated with Thomas Bayes, who studied logic and theology at the University of Edinburgh as an undergraduate (circa 1719–1722).

The meeting will include foundational lectures presented by Alan Gelfand, Anthony O’Hagan, Judith Rousseau, and Ed George. In addition, keynote speakers include Nicolas Chopin, Montse Fuentes, Steve MacEachern, and Michael Jordan.

ISBA 2018 is the continuation of the traditional Valencia/ISBA Meetings regularly held since 1979. They represent a unique event where the Bayesian community gathers together to discuss recent advances and the future of the profession.
