Twelfth Annual JAGS Workshop: Bayesian Modeling for Cognitive Science

July 8 – 12, 2024

In this on-site-only workshop, plenary lectures provide the theoretical background of Bayesian inference, and practical computer exercises teach you how to apply the popular JAGS 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. More information about the JAGS workshop can be found here.

Tenth Annual JASP Workshop on Theory and Practice of Bayesian Hypothesis Testing

July 15 – 16, 2024

The main purpose of this hybrid on-site/online 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 start by explaining a specific programming language. We offer an on-line version of the workshop for participants unable to attend on-site. More information about the JASP workshop can be found here.
