Bayesian Biostatistics Workshop

The Department of Biostatistics at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will hold a workshop in Bayesian Biostatistics, co-sponsored by SAS Institute, that will showcase new options for Bayesian analysis coming soon to users of SAS software. The workshop will be held May 17-18, 2007, on the historic UNC campus. Led by Joseph G. Ibrahim, Alumni Distinguished Professor of Biostatistics, the workshop will provide an introduction to Bayesian methods as well as practical examples using upcoming new software in SAS. The target audience for the workshop includes practicing biostatisticians and other public health researchers at the MS or PhD level in the pharmaceutical industry, in consulting, and in government or academics. No prior knowledge of Bayesian methods will be assumed; some familiarity with SAS will be useful. Online registration and accommodation information will be posted as soon as it is available.
