Two Workshops on Bayesian Statistics!

We’re excited to announce that we will be organizing two summer workshops in 2020. Similar to previous years, there will be one workshop focused on Bayesian cognitive modeling and one dedicated to Bayesian hypothesis testing in JASP. Unlike previous years, we will also feature Stan in our Bayesian cognitive modeling course! Have you always wanted to know the details of JAGS and Stan? Or learn how to implement Bayesian analyses in JASP? Save the date and come join us in Amsterdam this August. 

Registration will open soon.

Tenth Annual JAGS and Stan Workshop: Bayesian Modeling for Cognitive Science

August 17 – 21, 2020

In this workshop, plenary lectures provide the theoretical background of Bayesian inference, and practical computer exercises teach you how to apply the popular JAGS and Stan software to a wide range of different statistical models. After completing this workshop, you will have gained not only a new understanding of statistics, but also the technical skills to implement models that are appropriate for the substantive hypotheses that you seek to test.

Theory and Practice of Bayesian Hypothesis Testing: A JASP Workshop

August 24 – 25, 2020

The main purpose of this workshop is to familiarize participants with key Bayesian concepts in hypothesis testing. Concrete examples illustrate how to compute, report, and interpret Bayesian hypothesis tests for popular statistical models such as correlation, regression, t-test, ANOVA, and contingency tables. To facilitate the learning process we use JASP, a program whose attractive graphical user interface allows us to focus on core Bayesian concepts and principles, unburdened by the need to explain the detailed workings of an unfamiliar software program such as WinBUGS.

More information about the JASP workshop can be found here.
